SPORTS CHAT PLACE

The Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Sunday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium. The Detroit Tigers need a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after splitting their last 10 games.

The Detroit Tigers have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or fewer runs in five of their last seven games. The Tigers have lost eight of their last nine games when scoring three or fewer runs. Austin Meadows leads the Tigers with 21 hits and 11 RBI, while Robbie Grossman and Miguel Cabrera have combined for 33 hits and 10 RBI. Eduardo Rodriguez gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 5.03 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Rodriguez is 1-1 with a 3.18 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or fewer runs in four of their last eight games. The Dodgers have lost five straight games when scoring three or fewer runs. Freddie Freeman leads the Dodgers with 23 hits and 9 RBI, while Trea Turner and Chris Taylor have combined for 38 hits and 26 RBI. Walker Buehler gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 2.55 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. This will be Buehler’s first career game against the Tigers.

The Tigers are 19-40 in their last 59 Sunday games and 1-5 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series. The Dodgers are 46-13 in their last 59 home games and 60-23 in their last 83 overall. The under is 25-11-1 in Tigers last 37 overall. The under is 4-0 in Dodgers last 4 overall. The Tigers are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Los Angeles.

The Detroit Tigers are still struggling offensively, and one game doesn’t change the overall outlook. Eduardo Rodriguez has been terrible up to this point, allowing 17 hits and 11 earned runs in 19.2 innings, with eight walks. Walker Buehler has allowed just seven runs in his first 24.2 innings, and he had a 2.05 ERA at home last year. These lines with the Dodgers often get out of hand, but I have to lean the home team here, and of course I take the RL to shave down the price.
