TIGERS TRY TO END 6-GAME LOSING SKID HOSTING YANKEES
Thu, 26 May 2011 01:28 PM EDT

NEW YORK YANKEES (16-9)

at DETROIT TIGERS (12-16)

First pitch: Monday, 7:05 p.m. EDT
Line: Detroit -125, New York +115, Total: 8

New York looks to win its fifth game in the past six contests when it visits struggling Detroit on Monday night at Comerica Park.

Bartolo Colon (2-1, 2.77 ERA, 26 K’s in 26 IP) will take the mound for the Yankees. In his first start since July 2009, Colon allowed two runs in 6.2 innings of a 6-2 victory at Toronto on April 20. And in his last outing versus Chicago on Wednesday, the right-hander surrendered one run, seven hits and one walk while striking out six in eight innings of a 3-1 home win. Colon has made 22 career starts versus the Tigers and is 8-9 with a 5.32 ERA. Baseball scores.

He hasn’t beaten Detroit since 2003, going 0-4 with a 7.11 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and .348 opponents’ batting average in his past eight outings (seven starts) when facing Detroit. Magglio Ordonez is 11-for-47 (.234) against the righty for his career with three home runs and 10 RBI, while Brandon Inge is batting .348 (8-for-23) against Colon.

The Tigers have lost six straight games and is coming off consecutive series sweeps at the hands of Seattle and Cleveland. Detroit has scored just 17 runs and is batting .207 with runners in scoring position during the slide. Team ace Justin Verlander (2-3, 3.64 ERA) gets the ball on Monday night. Verlander has racked up 43 strikeouts in 42 innings and has a 1.02 WHIP. However, he’s dropped three of his past four contests, including a 10-1 decision to Seattle on Wednesday in which he allowed five hits and four runs (three earned) in six innings with eight strikeouts. Baseball odds.

On Opening Day at Yankee Stadium, Verlander didn’t get a decision after allowing three runs, three hits and four walks in six innings of a 6-3 Detroit loss. He is 3-1 with a 2.01 ERA in his past four outings against the Yankees at Comerica Park. Verlander has made nine career starts versus New York, going 4-3 with a 3.91 ERA. In 50.2 innings, he’s allowed 50 hits with 46 strikeouts and 23 walks. He’s also been lights out in May during his career, sporting a 18-8 record with a 2.75 ERA, which are his most wins and best ERA for any month.

The Yankees won two of three from Detroit to open the season, and they’ve won 11 of the past 16 meetings overall. But they were just 1-3 in Detroit in 2010. With Colon’s past struggles versus the Tigers coupled with Verlander’s stellar May career, the pick for Monday is Detroit. Baseball spreads.

This highly-rated FoxSheets trend also likes the Tigers to snap their losing skid.

Play On – Home teams when the money line is +125 to -125 (DETROIT) – with a team batting average of .265 or worse on the season (AL), after 2 straight losses by 2 runs or less. (92-52 since 1997.) (63.9%, +41.2 units. Rating = 3*).
