Game Preview

The Tigers beat the White Sox in a three-game sweep despite losing many key players to injury. They excelled both as pitchers and batters. They scored 17 runs while allowing only 4. The Tigers have won four in a row, but their overall record is still just 63-74. That’s 8.5 games worse than the Twins’ lead in the division.
Meanwhile, the Yankees have just completed a weekend sweep of the Astros. Six of their last seven games have ended in victories. The Yankees’ current record is 68-69. That’s eight games behind the Rangers for the Wild Card and 18 games back in the division.
The Yankees’ strongest asset this season has been their pitching staff, and they got even better over the weekend. The Yankees have a team ERA that ranks sixth on the season, as well as a WHIP that ranks sixth and an opponent batting average that ranks second.
Today, Gerrit Cole was the pitcher. His record is at 12 wins and 4 losses, and his earned run average is 2.95. That ranks as the fourth best ERA among major league pitchers this season. The Tigers were his opponent the last time out. He allowed just two runs, both on solo home runs, across six innings of work. His recent struggles with home runs can be attributed to this.


Today, Alex Faedo will take the mound for the Tigers. Faedo has a 4.89 ERA and a 2-5 record this season. The Tigers won 10-0 on Saturday thanks in part to his relief performance. In his last four outings, he has been consistently effective. In those four starts, he allowed just 10 runs (8 earned) across 20.1 innings pitched.
The Yankees’ pitching staff is stronger than the opposition’s. After a rough start to August, Cole is once again operating at peak performance. However, he did allow some contact the last time he faced the Tigers. Fortunately, most of their attempts resulted in hard outs rather than hits. However, in this case, he still needs to correct that. Alex Faedo has been effective in his last four outings at the helm, albeit he seldom lasts the whole nine innings.
