Saturday, at 10:10 AM PST, the Detroit Tigers and the Los Angeles Dodgers will be facing off at the Dodger Stadium. With both teams on losing streaks (5 for Detroit; 2 for L.A.), there is immense pressure for either team to prove themselves for this upcoming weekend series. With a 6-12 record, the Tigers haven’t been playing their best, to say the least. The Tigers were obliterated by the Minnesota Twins, who are currently first in the American League Central, in a 7-1 game. Though if Detroit still has their spirit intact after that six-point difference, that’s pretty commendable. Home team Dodgers, on the other hand, although not as severe, are coming to this game after losing two out of three games in their matchups against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Both on a losing roll, how will they fare against each other?  


If we’re being honest, the Dodgers have the odds in their favor. 12 wins and 6 losses, the Los Angeles Dodgers are second in the National League West and fourth across the MLB. As the highest-scoring team in baseball with the best record in the majors, the power in their offense is living up to expectations. Besides that, they also have a run differential of +44, leading MLB alongside the San Francisco Giants. 


Paying attention to the visiting team, they’ve been in bad shape for the last couple of seasons. Second-lowest home runs in the MNL, a struggling .229 batting average, and a .316 slugging percentage, the Tigers are ironically being eaten alive. Placing within the bottom five in the entire league, going against the 4th highest will be quite the undertaking if they happen to follow through.  


It’s looking like L.A.’s losing streak will be cut short thanks to Detroit. The Dodger’s start to the season is more than promising, especially when put side-by-side with the Tigers. It’s hard to take the Tigers seriously after they essentially just handed Minnesota their win on a silver plate. If they seemingly forgot how to play baseball against the Twins, what more against the Dodgers, who are quite higher on the board. We’re counting on the Tigers to give us an interesting match at the very least, but if they really can’t, it’s always entertaining (though mean) to see the bigger kids take candy from a baby.
