For the most part you can count on Tigers’ starter Rick Porcello to give you a strong effort on the mound. He faced the Orioles in his season opener and was impressive with 6.2 innings of 3-hit ball. Baltimore’s starter Bud Norris was on the mound that same day but struggled allowing 9 hits and 5 runs in 5 innings. The sub-par effort by Norris was his second in a row versus Detroit who has now allowed 12 earned runs over 10 innings in his last two against them. The Tigers bats were chilly on the weekend, but I expect them to rebound against the Orioles tonight.
Take Detroit -108.
