After winning two straight contests against the Red Sox, Detroit sends their ace to the hill as Justin Verlander and the Tigers attempt to earn a 3-1 series win against Boston. It’s significant that this contest has an early start on Sunday as Verlander is normally lights out in the sunshine. In nine day game starts this season The Vaporizer this 5-2 with a 1.94 ERA as he’s allowed just 13 earned runs over 60.1 innings – with 68 strikeouts.

Dating back to the 2009 MLB season, Verlander is 35-10 with a 2.25 ERA in day games and he has allowed and average of 3.34 runs per game. The Vaporizer will help keep the Tigers in this contest. Add in the big bats that Detroit can bust out at anytime, plus what should be a slight sense of urgency in Detroit – their AL Central lead is down to 3 games- and we like the Motor City Cats to come out on top in Detroit today.
