The Detroit Tigers (66-79) battle the Cleveland Guardians (76-71) at Comerica Park on Friday to open up a three-game series. The Tigers swept the Royals, and they’re riding a four-game winning streak heading into tonight’s contest. The Guardians have won just one of their last four, but they did salvage a game versus Cincinnati on Wednesday to avoid their fourth straight loss. Detroit leads the season series 7-3 over Cleveland, so we’ll see if they can remain dominant versus their division rivals.

Guardians vs Tigers Match Details
Fixture: Cleveland Guardians @ Detroit Tigers
Date & Time: Friday, September 29, 6:40 p.m. EDT
Venue: Comerica Park, Detroit, MI
The Tigers’ Joey Wentz toes the slab tonight, holding a 3-12 record and a 6.45 ERA. The lefty has been awful this season, but he has pitched well against Cleveland. In 10 2/3 innings facing the Guardians, he’s allowed only two runs. Cleveland is one of the weaker hitting teams in the AL, and they haven’t hit the Tigers pitching staff at all this year.
Cleveland is sending out Cal Quantrill, who is 3-7, with a 5.13 ERA. The right-hander has been bad overall, but he’s been solid over his previous five outings. The Tigers average less runs than Cleveland does, and Quantrill tossed six scoreless innings against them in August. The Guardians’ righty has had a really good September, where he has a 1.95 ERA, so we’ll see if he can deliver another strong outing in what will be his final start of 2023.
Cleveland Guardians vs Detroit Tigers Betting Prediction
Both starters didn’t allow a run last time they faced these opposing lineups, and we can’t trust these lineups to score much anyway. Of the ten meetings this year, nine of them have gone under, and there’s been one push. Expect another low-scoring bout here, in tonight’s final series opener.
