Detroit has lost five of its last seven games and the injuries keep piling up for the wounded Tigers, most notably first baseman Miguel Cabrera and center fielder Leonys Martin who are on the 10-day disabled list with hamstring injuries. The Seattle Mariners own a respectable 21-15 record on the season after a 9-3 win at Toronto Thursday night, and I think they’ll win a low-scoring contest here in the first game of a doubleheader.
Marco Gonzales (3-2, 5.19 ERA) will take the ball for Seattle. He was tagged with four runs in six innings against the Halos his last time out but had allowed just a total of two runs in his previous two outings. The 26 year old southpaw has a great 38/6 K/BB ratio through 34 2/3 innings of work on the season and will face Detroit for the first time in his career.
The Tigers turn to Matthew Boyd (1-3, 3.00 ERA) who lost his last outing Sunday, giving up four runs and six hits in seven innings against Kansas City.
The Mariners are 6-0 in the last six meetings.
Free pick on Seattle Mariners.
