Twins vs Tigers: MLB Playoff Chase Continues for Detroit

Detroit Tigers: On the prowl for AL Central pennant

Full Disclaimer: Yours truly was born with an Old English D tattooed on his umm - chest. Although it’s been a weird roller-coaster ride since the All Star break, Detroit has finally secured an invitation to the MLB Playoff party. The clinching honours went to Justin Verlander as the Vaporizer allowed one run on seven hits in a 6-1 win over the White Sox during matinee action yesterday. The victory also reduced the AL Central clinching “magic number” to three as the Cats now lead Kansas City by two games. The Royals will have to take a Wild Card playoff position once the dust settles on the final weekend of the regular season on Sunday.

Detroit ends their 2014 MLB schedule with four games at home versus the Twins and RHP Max Scherzer (17-5 ERA 3.19) gets the call in the series opener. Hoping it’s not his last regular season start in the Motor City, due to a bitter contract battle, we see Scherzer as a lock in this contest. Max has given a maximum effort all season long and he has allowed just eight earned runs over 26.2 innings pitched in September – four games that Detroit won by a combined 26-14 final count. RHP Trevor May (3-5 ERA 8.39) heads to the bump for the Twins and the rookie is in tough here. In his first career start versus Detroit, May allowed five runs on 11 hits over 5.1 innings as the Twinkies dropped a 8-6 decision back on August 23, 2014.

MLB Game Day Call: Understanding the price on the SportsInteraction betting board would be steep, and it is, we will still cruise with the Cats in this contest. While we’re not big fans of the gas can bullpen in Detroit – a Tigers blowout win seems imminent here. Any combination of three Detroit wins and three KC loses secures the pennant. Saddle up and ride with a 500 unit run line wager on the Motor City Mashers.
