The Tigers picked up an upset win yesterday despite going scoreless for the first 9 innings of the game.
Matt Boyd is scheduled to take the mound for the Tigers. In 2018 Boyd was the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Will Boyd was great hot home, 6-3 with a 2.63 ERA, he was only 3-10 with a 5.89 ERA on the road.
The Tigers also were only 26-55 on the road last season.
Toronto will be sending Matt Shoemaker to the mound. Shoemaker is not great but he’s a Michigan native who seems to really get up for pitching against his home state’s team. Shoemaker is 3-1 with a 0.83 ERA against the Tigers, better than any other MLB team he’s faced
My Pick: Toronto Blue Jays Moneyline -129
Risk: To win 3 units
