Tigers Undefeated On The Road This Year

The Detroit Tigers have been road warriors in the early going of the season, with the squad going 4-0 away from home while outscoring opponents 29-17. The Tigers will travel to Minute Maid Park for a series against the Houston Astros this weekend, a team who is just 1-3 at home this season.

Shark Bites
  • The Astros are 4-1 In their past five games against the Tigers.
  • The Tigers’ bullpen has been overworked and may be short staffed Friday.
  • Only two players in the projected Tigers’ lineup have ever gone yard against Keuchel.

Detroit will send Mike Pelfrey to the mound Friday, after the pitcher got absolutely rocked in his first outing of the year. Pelfrey lasted just 3.2 innings while giving up eight hits and six earned runs in his season debut against the New York Yankees.

The Astros will counter with ace Dallas Keuchel who has not lost a start at home since July 25, 2014. Keuchel, who will be making his first start in Houston this season, went 15-0 with a 1.46 ERA in 18 starts at Minute Maid Park last season.
