Oakland Athletics vs Detroit Tigers
The Oakland Athletics visit the Detroit Tigers in a four-game series starting on Monday afternoon at Comerica Park in their only series meeting this summer. The Athletics come to Detroit off a 5-game win streak after losing one to the White Sox on Friday, looking to add to the Tiger’s current 3-game losing streak and take over third place currently occupied by the Angels.
Detroit will start their best against the A’s kicking off game 1 with Jordan Zimmerman (2-0, 4.95 ERA) against ace Frankie Montas (4-1, 2.41 ERA), Blaine Hardy (3-1, 3.30 ERA) vs. Oakland’s Chris Bassitt (0-2, 2.45 ERA), Michael Fulmer (3-6, 4.17 ERA) vs. Oakland’s Chris Bassitt (0-2, 2.45 ERA), and Mike Fiers (5-3, 4.09 ERA) vs. Oakland’s Daniel Mengden (6-6, 4.06 ERA).
Oakland Athletics's Latest Performance :
Oakland is a team of streaks lately. They dropped four in a row then reeled off five wins in a row before being stopped short by the White Sox. They are looking to continue those winning ways and surpass their California rival Los Angeles Angels to move one step closer to a possible playoff birth down the road.
The A’s were happy to welcome outfielder Matt Joyce back to the line-up after a 10-day stint on the disabled list sending the struggling Jake Molinksi down to Triple-A Nashville.
Detroit Tigers's Latest Performance :
The Detroit Tigers, losers of three in a row, are looking to regroup after an embarrassing blowout and shutout 10-0 by the division rival and current first-place Cleveland Indians on Friday night and back-to-back losses to a last-place Cincinnati Reds team. They haven’t looked like a second-place team in what is shaping up to be a messy AL Central with Cleveland the only team in the division possessing a winning record.
