Detroit Tigers vs. Cleveland Guardians
The Detroit Tigers are currently in the second-last place in the AL East and are hoping to avoid finishing the season with a losing record. Garrett Hill will start for them on Tuesday. He has been struggling this season, allowing 21 runs in 36.2 innings. Aside from his poor record, Hill has also been hit hard by opposing teams, which is why he has a 6.28 ERA.
The hope is that Hill can continue his recent good starts, as the team's offense has been struggling and scored only 3.17 runs per game. Harold Castro is leading the way with a .286 batting average and 114 total bases, while Miguel Cabrera and Eric Haase have combined for 12 home runs. However, the rest of the lineup has also been struggling. Only two players in the lineup have an average of over 100 runs scored, and only two have 10 home runs.
The Tigers managed to rack 15 hits on Monday. They also had a perfect defense with zero errors. Harold Castro led Detroit's batting against Cleveland with an average of .277.
The Guardians are a surprise team in the league this season, as they have a 9-4 record in August and are currently in first place in their division. They will start pitcher Zach Plesac, who has struggled with his ERA and has allowed 63 runs in 114.2 innings. Due to the expected batting average and expected opponent batting average, opponents are hitting hard against him.
The team's offense has struggled with Plesac's performance on the mound, scoring 4.35 runs per game. However, the rest of the lineup has been performing well, as Jose Ramirez and Andres Gimenez have been leading the league in home runs and total bases. The other batting order members have also contributed to the team's success.
In addition to the home runs, the other members of the team's batting order have also contributed to the team's success. Steven Kwan and Amed Rosario have contributed to the team's success by hitting 11 home runs each.
Cleveland ran the offense on Monday, but their eight hits could not keep up with Detroit's 15 hits. The Guardians also had one defensive error. Andres Gimenez led Cleveland's offense with a .318 batting average and two RBIs.
