3 units on Arizona -129 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Tigers just keep losing and can't seem to find there way. They are now just 2-11, and the losing streak has reached five games. These 13 games show the Tiger offense producing just 39 runs or three a game. Not many wins are going to be manufactured like that. Armondo Galarraga has been good, but has had a tough time against the two hitting teams he has faced in Boston and Anaheim. Arizona has been a tough out at home, and Max Scherzer has pitched every bit as well as Galarraga, but the difference here is the bats are clicking for the D-backs, and the Tigers have been silenced. Throw in the fact that a struggling lineup is now a bat shorter without a DH and the D-backs are in control at home.
