(MLB) Cleveland vs. Detroit, 07/05/2022 7:10 PM, Score: 4 - 11
Money Line: -142.00 Cleveland (Away)
Result: Loss
T.M. Selection: Cleveland Guardians.

I like the Cleveland Guardians to win this game against the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday. The Guardians have lost 2 games in a row now after stealing a game from the Yankees on Sunday but now they are in jeopardy of losing this series after getting swept in a double header on Monday. I think the Guardians will bounce back here and they are just a few games out of 1st place in their division so I expect them to have some motivation here against 1 of the bad teams in their division. Cal Quantrill (4-4, 3.72 ERA) is up for the Guardians here and I expect him to pitch well in this game like he has all year. He has been giving up runs in his previous starts but he hasn't had many starts where he gives up 4+ runs and he just had a start in his most recent game where he gave up 3 runs but also pitched 8 innings deep. The Tigers don't have a strong lineup here and they actually have 1 of the worst offenses in the league so I expect him to shut the Tigers down here. Drew Hutchison (0-4, 4.81 ERA) is up for the Tigers here and he hasn't been great this year. He has mainly made his appearances as a reliever this year but he has had a few where he has given up a ton of runs in less than 2 innings. He has only made 2 starts with this being his 3rd and I expect him to have another bad start here. His 1st 2 starts weren't terrible but he still gave up runs and didn't really pitch past the 4th inning in those games. The Tigers don't have a great bullpen either and the Guardians have been hot with their bats lately, despite losing a lot of games as of late they are still putting up runs. I expect the Guardians to bounce back here against a bad team in their division and use this game to inch close to the Twins leading the division. I like the Guardians here.

T.M. Prediction: 6-3 Guardians.
