The Detroit Tigers travel to Philadelphia on Wednesday evening for the final game of their three-game set against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Tigers right-hander Reese Olson will start while Zack Wheeler will get his turn as starting pitcher for Philadelphia.
Detroit’s troubled offense will find scoring difficult against Philadelphia’s excellent pitching staff, which ranks near the top in FIP. Detroit only managed six runs during Monday’s 8-3 loss against them with Nick Maton’s homer ending Aaron Nola’s no-hit bid in the seventh inning. Additionally, their impressive bullpen has only allowed five earned runs during their last four games and currently ranks near the top of MLB in FIP.
The Tigers rank 28th overall for runs per game this year. Just 3 teams possess a lower OBP, and no team has a lower slugging percentage. This season, the Motor City team suffers terrible luck driving in runs.
Though they have not had an impressive start offensively, the Phillies do boast plenty of young talent that can quickly transform them. Bryce Harper has already shown what can happen when on a hot streak and Trea Turner is currently hitting .255 with a 1.30 OPS and five homers so far this season. Even if their pitching staff’s ERA merely ranks 21st, that’s still excellent in relation to the offensive.
The Philadelphia Phillies’ defense has been impressive, while their pitchers have done enough to keep them competitive for an NL East playoff spot despite missing some key members from last season’s playoff team. They currently rank fifth in run prevention while starters boast a combined 3.97 ERA through 10 starts.
Even after dropping two of their opening three road games, the Phillies are only eight games behind first place in a tightly bunched National League East with nine remaining. While their bullpen has struggled lately, it could become an effective weapon if given time to mesh properly again.
