It may only be the middle of May but the Brewers have been sunk for some time now. They have the worst record in the National League and even though they may not be a .333 team there is not a lot of hope for things to significantly improve in the short term.
With the Cubs emerging and the Reds better than expected they picked a bad time to struggle. They just lost two of three over the weekend to the first place Mets and things are going to be no easier against Detroit.
Last season Mike Fiers was incredible for a third of a season. He entered the rotation and something clicked as he put up a 2.13 ERA with some stunning peripherals. This year he is still striking out batters at a nice clip but he is getting hit and hit hard. Last year he gave up 7 homers in over 71 inning and this season he has already given up six in just under half of that.
Same goes for hits last year he gave up 46, this year in half the innings he is already at 42. Looks like the magic is gone.
It certainly looks like Detroit is going to be in a battle with Kansas City all season long which means they are going to have to take advantage of opportunities like this one with the struggling Brewers visiting. Detroit did take two of three against the Cardinals over the weekend but lost last night. The Tigers put up 15 runs over their weekend series but came up short on Sunday night as they couldn’t get much done against Lance Lynn. Fiers should be a little more accommodating.
Lobstein is a terrible baseball name but it turns out he is a serviceable major league pitcher. He is 3-3 this season but his peripherals are not very sharp and he has not been good at Comerica Park. Lobstein relies too much on guys putting the ball in play and Detroit is not a high level defensive team.
Even still this is a favourable matchup for Detroit overall.

4* MLB Betting Prediction: Over 8.5
Look to take the over in this one. Neither pitchers has been impressive this season and the Tigers are among the better hitting teams in the league.
MLB Score Prediction: Detroit 6 – Milwaukee 5
One of those situations where the probability of them both figuring it out on the same day seems very unlikely.
