7* Friday MLB DET/BOS
Boston vs. Detroit,
06/21/2013 19:08 EDT,
Score: 10 - 6
Money Line: -135 Detroit
The Detroit Tigers host the Boston Red Sox on Friday in game two of a four-game set. Detroit won game one in the series on Friday, 4-3.
Doug Fister gets the nod for the Tigers in this one. The righty has been in fine form of late, posting a 3.00 ERA with a 0.88 WHIP over his last three starts.
Fister has been solid at Comerica Park in his time with the Tigers. Since being acquired by Detroit in a trade with Seattle in July of 2011, Fister has made 26 starts at home. In those games Fister has gone 15-5, posting a 2.68 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP. The Tigers are 20-6 in those games.
The Tigers are 9-2 in Fister’s last 11 starts as a favorite at home.
The Red Sox counter with Jon Lester. A strong start to the season for Lester has kept his numbers respectable, and the price to get in on this play reasonable, but Lester has been terrible over his last six starts.
In those games Lester has gone 0-4 with a 7.20 ERA and a 1.86 WHIP. The Red Sox went 2-4 in those games, but 0-4 on the road.
The Tigers are 60-25 in their last 85 home games. Take Detroit.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
