On Tuesday night, the Detroit Tigers (2-8) took an early 3-0 lead against the Toronto Blue Jays (7-4) in the second inning, but the Blue Jays rallied back to score nine runs and win their home opener 9-3. Five different Blue Jays hit home runs, and the bullpen was solid behind Alex Manoah. The Tigers used only two pitchers, but neither had a good night. The teams meet again on Wednesday at 7:07 p.m. EST.
Detroit has struggled since winning two out of three games in Houston after getting swept by Tampa Bay in their season opener. They are currently on a five-game losing streak and have lost each game by at least three runs. Despite not being expected to make the postseason, the Tigers expected better than their current 2-8 record.
To turn things around, Eduardo Rodriguez will have to pitch well against Toronto, a team he has faced 17 times in his career and has struggled against, with a 5.20 ERA and 17 homers allowed. Detroit’s bullpen has also been struggling and is ranked 30th in WAR. The Tigers’ offense has been equally disappointing, with only 30 runs scored, the fewest in MLB.
Toronto, on the other hand, has been hitting well, with 15 home runs in their last eight games. Kevin Gausman will start for Toronto and has yet to allow an earned run this season in 12.0 innings. The Blue Jays have a potent offense led by Bo Bichette, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and Matt Chapman, all with an OPS over 1.000.
Toronto will try to win their first home series of the season before facing undefeated Tampa Bay over the weekend. The Tigers will need to turn things around quickly if they hope to compete this season.
