(MLB) NY Yankees vs. Detroit, 08/31/2023 1:10 PM, Score: 3 - 4
Money Line: -122.00 NY Yankees (Away)
Result: Loss
The Yankees have taken three straight from the Tigers, and a four game sweep wouldn't surprise me. Clarke Schmidt has had some good stretches this year, with 4 quality starts to 1 very sub-par outing in August. He held the Rays and Red Sox to 1 and 2 runs in his last two appearances. Manning has a similar line in August; 4-1 in quality starts with a lower OP BA and more innings pitched than Schmidt. He left his last start in the seventh due to back pain, so the Tigers may be a little cautious about innings today. NY is good as a road favorite this season. While Detroit has a better record in August, the Tigers' runs for and against is an unhealthy 2.7/6.7 last 7 games, when compared to the Yankees at 4.1/3.3. The Yankees still have the best bullpen in the league. NY has been hitting for power lately with 13 HR and .417 SLG, while the Tigers have struggled to a .189 BA/.586 OPS line. Take the Yankees to get another solid outing from the young right-hander Schmidt and to bring out the broom today.
