Detroit Tigers players will look to bounce back from Saturday’s blowout loss the Orioles on Sunday. Justin Verlander will take the mound as the Tigers go for the series victory.
Detroit Tigers fans didn’t exactly see stellar baseball on Saturday night.
Starter Jordan Zimmermann was rocked for six runs, four hits, three home runs and three walks in just an inning pitched. The former National’s ERA jumped to 4.94 on the season.
Detroit will look to bounce back on Sunday as the team goes for the series win. The Tigers will send Justin Verlander to the mound as the ace goes for his 15th win. Verlander last won 15 games back in 2014.
The future Hall of Famer has an excellent chance of reaching the 15-win mark against an Orioles team that he’s 9-4 against in his career. What’s more, the veteran’s ERA against the American League East club is a solid 3.70.
Many of Baltimore’s best hitters have struggled against the right hander in their careers. Chris Davis is only batting .259 off Verlander, while Manny Machado, Mark Trumbo and Jonathan Schoop are all career .167 hitters against the ace.
