Detroit Tigers Analysis

The Detroit Tigers suffered their fourth loss in five games as they were defeated in the opening game of their series on Tuesday night. Despite a strong offensive showing from Gio Urshela and Riley Greene, the Tigers fell short. Pitcher Kenta Maeda had a solid performance but did not factor in the decision. Casey Mize will start in the upcoming game, looking to improve on his recent outings. The Tigers have a power ranking of 26 and are ranked 19th in offense and 14th in defense. Detroit has a record of 32-34 on the season. Washington has struggled in recent matchups against the Tigers, losing their last three games.

Tigers' Mize Struggles, Nationals Favored in Series Finale

The Tigers have faced some challenges recently, and the presence of Mize as the starting pitcher may not inspire confidence in a turnaround. With only one win in 12 starts this season and a record of just three wins in 24 career starts at Comerica Park, Mize has struggled to find consistent success. In contrast, Gore has five wins this season and is coming off a recent victory against Atlanta. The Nationals have won four consecutive games and received strong performances from their pitching staff. After winning the opening game of the series, Washington appears to have the advantage on the mound in this matchup. Therefore, the Nationals are favored to win on getaway day and secure the series victory.
