MLB: Detroit Tigers at Los Angeles Angels Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Tigers are the only MLB team averaging fewer than three runs per game on the road this season, and they will look to get the bats going in Los Angeles on Wednesday vs. the Angels.

Detroit Tigers vs. Los Angeles Angels (-195, 8.5)

The Tigers will look to starter Drew Hutchison to continue his steady improvement, as he’s allowed three earned runs or fewer in seven straight starts. Also, his 3.60 road ERA indicated he’s much more comfortable pitching away from Detroit, where he has a 4.40 ERA.

Behind Hutchison, the Tigers bullpen ranks ninth in the league in ERA. Detroit’s relievers are a big reason the under has hit in 59.5% of Tigers games this season.

The Angels bullpen is fifth in the league in ERA since the beginning of August (2.91), and starter Patrick Sandoval has also been solid in 2022.

Sandoval has given up two earned runs or fewer in six straight games. He’s also surrendered just six home runs in 122 innings across 22 starts this season.

With the Tigers having scored three runs or fewer in seven of their last eight games and overall the pitching outperforming the lineup, Wednesday sets up for another low-scoring Tigers game.
