Detroit Tigers - Tigers hoping to get another strong start
In the victory that the Detroit Tigers had on Tuesday, solo home runs were contributed by both Parker Meadows (two hits and two runs) and Akil Baddoo. Miguel Cabrera, a veteran of 21 seasons in Major League Baseball, hit his 511th home run with the Tigers during game two before he was suspended. On Thursday, Sawyer Gipson-Long will take the field as the team's starting quarterback. Long has made three starts so far this season, all of which count toward his career total, and he has a record of 1-0 with a 2.40 earned run average. In 15.0 innings, he has struck out 20 batters.
Kansas City Royals - Royals have little issue
In the first game of this series, which took place on Tuesday, the Kansas City Royals were up 2-0 at one point but ultimately fell by a score of 6-3. In the end, Salvador Perez had two hits and was responsible for one run batted in. The Kansas City Royals were trailing by a score of 4-0 when the game-two encounter on Wednesday had to be postponed because of the weather. That one will be made up at 1:10 p.m. prior to this game three finale. Cole Ragans is scheduled to take the mound for the Kansas City Royals in the final game of the season, which will take place on Thursday. Ragans has appeared in 28 games (11 starts) and has a record of 7-4 with a 3.31 earned run average (ERA). In his previous seven starts, Ragans has compiled a record of 4-0 while posting a 2.53 earned run average.
Expert Betting Tips
In this matchup, I'm going to continue to back the Kansas City Royals. In spite of this, we ought to be treated to an entertaining pitching duel between the starters. Over the course of his previous three starts, Ragans has pitched 17.2 innings and has a record of 1-0 with nine earned runs. (A start against Houston consisting of six innings was responsible for five of the earned runs.) Gipson-Long, for his part, has only two earned runs to show for his most recent two outings that are longer than 10.0 innings. I anticipate strong performances from both of the starting players in this matchup. On Wednesday, the Kansas City Royals got off to a slow start, and it's probably for the best that the game got halted because they were so far down.
