The total run margin is set at 9 with both ways at -110.
The Cleveland Guardians and Detroit Tigers were involved in a doubleheader on Independence Day where the home Tigers, surprisingly, took both games. The first game was a 4-1 win in which starting pitcher Garrett Hill got credited with the win in his MLB debut. Hill couldn’t have done much better as he threw six innings and only allowed two hits in the ballgame.
In the nightcap, the Tigers won 5-3 as Jonathan Schoop added two more hits to bring his total for the day to 6. Cal Quantrill should be able to put an end to the losing streak for the Guardians as he has put a couple of string starts together in a row. He also has only given up 5 runs in 16.1 career innings against Detroit so he’s comfortable facing these guys. The Guardians will win this one pretty easily.
