MLB Game Day Insights Mets vs. Tigers Pitching Preview

Break up the Amazing Mets! In their last four games New York has scored 52 runs. Prior to this recent offensive outburst, the Mets had scored 49 runs in 13 games. New York had gone 299 games without a grand slam home run until they got two, in back-to back innings, on Tuesday during a 14-3 thrashing of the Tigers.

Despite hitting five home runs, to zero for the Mets, the Tigers dropped their second straight game, by a 16-9 final score, to New York on Wednesday. Detroit slips a percentage point back of the Cleveland Indians for the lead in the AL Central.

Don’t expect the hit parade to continue for the Mets in Motown this afternoon. Tigers ace, and arguably the best pitcher in baseball, RHP Justin Verlander (10-3 2.38 ERA) will toe the rubber and cool off the hot New York bats in this one.

Verlander has not lost a start since April 27, 2011 and he has won his last six starts with a microscopic 0.72 ERA and three shutouts. He is also 8-0, with two no-decisions, in his last ten starts.

Mets RHP Mike Pelfrey (4-6 4.78 ERA) has the unenviable task of trying to match Verlander on the mound. Pelfrey is coming off an 8-1 loss to the Texas Rangers on 06/24 after he pitched a complete game over the Los Angeles Angels (6-1 win) on 06/18.

We feel the same way about Verlander as we do when Roy Halladay is on the hill for the Philadelphia Phillies. When these two guys start – load up.

Detroit can score in bunches and Verlander, who owns a 1.64 ERA in day games, will be his untouchable self as the Tigers stop their mini two game slide.

Take the Tigers over the Mets at -1.5 runs (-110) with the Bodog Point Spread!
