The Tigers have been struggling with 3 wins in their last 1o games. Same goes for Detroit’s starter Justin Verlander who has allowed a combined 17 runs in his last 3 starts over 17 1/3 innings. Two of those 3 starts came on the road where his ERA on the season is a bloated 4.91. Hisashi takes the mound for the Mariners and he’ll look to rebound from a mediocre start versus Houston in his latest. His 3 previous games were outstanding with 2 runs allowed in 24 innings. He has yet to allow a run to Detroit in 14 innings over two career starts.
Take Seattle -110.
