Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera is heading to the All-Star Game, and J.D Martinez is 8-for-19 with two homers and five RBIs in July. Expect the best of the Tigers’ offense on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball as they will need to play flawless baseball to be competitive with the suddenly surging Rays, who look to finish their 11-game road trip with nine victories. Furthermore, the Over is 7-0-1 in Tigers’ last 8 games against American League East teams.
PITCHING MATCHUP: Rays LH David Price (7-7, 3.50 ERA) vs. Tigers RH Rick Porcello (11-4, 3.12)
Price has surrendered 17 homers – among the most in the majors. Though he is in the process of turning things around, he has alot of work to do.
Porcello has been amazing all season. However, it is odd to see that the Over is 9-2 in Porcello’s last 11 starts with the total set at 7.0-8.5.
