Detroit Tigers vs Oakland Athletics

Detroit Tigers 

Detroit started climbing up the AL Central in July, but then they lost ground to the Chicago White Sox. They lost 8 of their final 9 games before the All-Star break, and they are currently at 37-55. The Tigers are 12 games behind the first-place Twins and 9 behind the third-place White Sox.

The offense has been the main issue for the Tigers this season. They are currently 27th in the league in runs scored, 29th in home runs, and 30th in the batting average. Miguel Cabrera leads the way with a .287 batting average, while Javy Baez puts up a .213 average with 9 home runs and 35 RBIs.

The Tigers have not named a starting pitcher for the second game of the series. However, their pitching has been solid, as they are currently 22nd in the league with an ERA of 4.15. The bullpen has also been solid, as they are now holding opponents to a 3.08 ERA. If the team decides to start Skrubal in the first game, it will likely go to Beau Brieske in the second game. Brieske is currently 4-6 with a 4.19 ERA.

Oakland Athletics

The Athletics finished the first half with a better record than the Tigers. Despite being the worst team in the American League at 32-61, they managed to win three of their last five games before the break, and they took two out of three from the division's best team, the Houston Astros. The offense finally started to get hot in July, a massive factor in their turnaround.

Over their last 10 games, the A's average around four runs per game. This is significantly better than their season average of around three runs per game. They are currently 30th in the league in batting average, 29th for home runs, and 30th for the slugging percentage. One of the main reasons the offense started to get hot in July was the contributions of Sean Murphy and Ramon Laureano.

In the second game of the series, the A's will start right-hander Frank Montas. He has a 3-9 with a 3.26 ERA in 17 starts this season. He has been struggling this season due to the lack of run support, and he was recently cleared to start after missing a couple of starts due to a shoulder injury.

Montas has struggled against the Tigers this season, with a score of 0-1 with a 5.12 ERA in six starts. In his career, he has a record of 4-3 with a 4.18 ERA and 40 Ks against them. The A's pitching has been struggling this season, as their team ERA is currently at 4.34.
