Detroit Tigers baseball is back on Monday. The team continues the 2017 regular season on the road against the Houston Astros. Here’s what you need to know to watch.
Detroit Tigers players will look to rebound on Monday following a defeat to the Texas Rangers.
The Tigers had a chance to win a second-straight series, but ended up falling to Texas by a final score of 5-2.
In unsurprising news, Miguel Cabrera led the way for Detroit, collecting three hits and an RBI in four trips to the plate.
The multi-hit game helped move the future Hall of Famer’s batting average to .265 and his on-base percentage to .352.
With six hits and two walks in his last 15 plate appearances, Cabrera looks to be turning things around at the right time for Detroit.
The slugging first baseman will look to once again lead the charge for the Tigers, as the team hits the road to face the Houston Astros.
Cabrera and company will match up with Houston’s Brad Peacock, a right-handed starter who is making his first start of the year.
Peacock owns a 1.10 ERA and a 2.36 FIP in 16.1 bullpen innings this year. Cabrera and Nicholas Castellanos both have home runs against the former Washington Nationals farmhand.
Ian Kinsler has four hits, an RBI and a walk in 12 at-bats against the 29-year-old.
