Predictions

With Tarik Skubal on the mound for the Tigers, boasting an impressive 8-1 record and a 1.92 ERA, Detroit has a strong chance to secure a win. Skubal has been dominant, allowing just two earned runs over his last three outings. Hunter Brown will start for the Astros with a 2-5 record and a 5.58 ERA. Despite recent improvements, the Astros’ pitching struggles might continue.

Detroit has been consistent in scoring runs recently and Skubal’s form makes them the favorites. My pick: Tigers win.

The Tigers will be relying heavily on Riley Greene‘s bat, who has 12 home runs and 30 RBIs this season. Conversely, the Astros will look to Yordan Alvarez, batting .293 with 14 home runs, to lead their offense.

Additionally, Houston’s pitching staff has been vulnerable, showing a 4.20 ERA, which plays into Detroit’s hands, especially given Skubal’s formidable form.

Keep an eye on Skubal possibly tightening his grip on being one of the best pitchers in the American League, as his current stats certainly reflect dominance on the mound. The Tigers need to secure a win to stay competitive in the AL Wild Card race.
