Yesterday, there were 18 hits but only seven runs that crossed the plate for the Tigers and the Mets. Theoretically, the bats deserved a heck of a lot better than that considering all of the contact that was made with the baseball. The Tigers are tearing the cover off of the ball again, as they have plated at least six runs in five of their last six games. New York has been all over the place, but generally speaking, the team has been remotely average. One would like to think that RHP Max Scherzer and RHP Matt Harvey aren’t going to be giving up all that much in the way of run production, but we have a feeling that this is going to be a bit of an exception. The Tigers are averaging six runs per game with Scherzer on the mound, and though that really has no bearing on much of anything, it is still a harsh reminder that, regardless of how good the righty has been in his epic 18-1 season, he still has had a lot of support to get here. Scherzer has a 2.82 ERA, and even if he stays right near his average, we expect that the Mets are going to score a couple off of him. That said, this is a game that should get to at least six runs, and we have to think that more of than not, it is getting to at least seven. These two pitchers are great, but they aren’t good enough to keep this one to five or fewer better than half the time.
Detroit Tigers @ New York Mets Pick: Over 6
Detroit Tigers @ New York Mets Score Prediction: Mets 4 – Tigers 3
