Detroit Tigers (50-46) @ Tampa Bay Rays (59-38)

Date: Monday July 26th, 2010

Time: 7:10 pm EST

Preview: The Detroit Tigers will take on the Tampa Bay Rays in the first of a three game series at Tropicana Field on Monday. The Tigers have struggled of late, with numerous injuries, including the most recent to Magglio Ordonez over the weekend. The one consistent for Detroit has been Miguel Cabrera, with his .349 batting average, along with 24 homeruns and 87 runs batted in. Detroit has dropped to third place in the American League Central; 2.5 games behind the Chicago White Sox. The Tigers will send 25 year old Max Scherzer to the mound for this affair. Scherzer is 7-7 on the season with an earned run average of 4.43. The right hander is coming off a 7 inning affair, in which he allowed just 4 hits and 0 runs in a win over the Rangers.

For Tampa Bay, Matt Garza will take the hill. Garza has had an up and down season for the Rays. Garza is 10-5 on the season, with a 4.36 earned run average. The right hander from California has won his last three decisions, but most recently was banged around by Baltimore in a 11-10 game. In that game, Garza allowed 10 hits and 7 runs, while giving up 4 homeruns. Tampa Bay comes in to the game in second place in the American League East with a 59-38 record. The Rays hold the wildcard in the American League, and trail the Yankees by three game for the division. As a team, Tampa Bay is batting .256, which ranks 22nd in all of baseball.

My Betting Pick: Tampa Bay continues to play well at home. Rays win 6-5.
