Why you should back the Tigers
Despite their current struggles at home, the Tigers have won four straight meetings with the Twins at Comerica Park, outscoring them 20-7 in the process. Detroit also enters Monday’s contest with several players swinging hot bats. Jonathan Schoop, who leads the team with 70 RBIs, has gone 6-for-16 over his last four outings while Miguel Cabrera and Jeimer Candelario both are riding six-game hitting streaks.
Casey Mize (7-6, 3.55 ERA) did not fare well against Minnesota last season but was solid in his lone outing versus the club in 2021. After surrendering 11 runs over 11.2 innings in three turns last year, the 24-year-old rookie limited the Twins to one run and over four frames in his season debut on Apr. 6. Mize is coming off a victory at St. Louis on Tuesday in which he scattered three hits over five scoreless innings.
Why you should back the Twins
Bailey Ober (1-2, 4.06 ERA) is winless in eight starts but has pitched well of late. The 24-year-old rookie right-hander has allowed only two earned runs over 16.1 innings in his last three starts, with two of those turns being scoreless efforts. One took place on Wednesday, when he settled for a no-decision at Boston despite giving up only four hits over five scoreless frames.
Ober is hoping to get plenty of support on Monday from Minnesota’s offense, which produced nine runs in two of its previous three road games. Jorge Polanco leads the Twins with a career-high 24 home runs and also tops the club with 76 RBIs, which is three shy of the personal best he recorded in 2019. The 28-year-old Dominican has notched six multi-hit performances in his last 11 contests while Miguel Sano has reached safely in 26 of his past 28 games.
