Tigers Face Must-Win Game Against Braves Sunday

The Detroit Tigers enter the final day of the MLB regular season 1.5 games outside the AL Wild Card with a loss to the Atlanta Braves ending their postseason dreams. The Tigers have won five of the past six against the Braves, but lost the second game in the series 5-3 Saturday.

SHARK BITES
  • Justin Verlander has surrendered just 9 hits and 2 runs in his past 20.2 innings of work.
  • The OVER is 16-6 in the Braves’ past 22 games at Turner Field.
  • The Tigers are 6-1 against the runline in their past 7 road games.

Justin Verlander takes the bump for the Tigers in this must-win situation. Verlander has been near untouchable during the second half of the season, as he has a 2.00 ERA while holding batters to a .176 batting average since the All-Star Break.

Julio Teheran will start the Braves final game at Turner Field – which is set to close its doors after 20 years. Atlanta’s ace has not exactly been lighting the world on fire as of late with a 4.86 ERA in his past eight starts since a stint on the DL.
