Tigers pitcher Michael Pineda tosses versus the Athletics throughout the 2nd inning on Monday, May 9, 2022, at Comerica Park.

Game notes: The great news for the Tigers? They’re 6-2 this season when scoring a minimum of 4 runs, consisting of Friday night’s white-knuckler to open the series versus the Orioles. The problem, which you might have sussed out with some fast mathematics, is that they’ve been held to 3 runs or less 25 times this season, going 4-21 in those. No other group in the majors has more than 20 video games with 3 or less runs.

Maybe the bats will continue their semi-live action versus Baltimore lefty Bruce Zimmermann, who’s having a moderate breakout season with 30 strikeouts over 30 1/3 innings for the O’s in his 3rd season. But considering he has actually permitted more than 3 runs simply as soon as in 6 starts this season – 4 go to the New York Yankees on April 28 – and no Tiger on the lineup has actually faced him formerly, it’s an undecided bet.

So no pressure, Michael Pineda! The huge righty is coming off his finest start of his four-game Tigers period, enabling simply 2 runs over 6 2/3 innings Monday versus the A’s. Unfortunately for him, that was among the Tigers’ 4 nothings this season – can’t quit less than absolutely no. Pineda has a great history versus a few of the most experienced O’s, holding Rougned Odor and Robinson Chirinos to a combined 2-for 19 efficiency. But the heart of the Baltimore offense — Trey Mancini, Cedric Mullens and Anthony Santander — is a combined 8-for-14 versus him with a double (Santander), triple (Mullins) and crowning achievement (Mancini).

After Saturday’s matinee, the Tigers and O’s finish up the series with a 1:40 start —Sunday video games for the next couple of months are pressed back by thirty minutes to honor NBC/Peacock’s unique window for pre-noon video games — prior to going their different methods. The Tigers will head to St. Petersburg, Florida, for a three-game set versus the continually hard Tampa Bay Rays, while the Orioles head back to Baltimore to deal with a somewhat more threatening offense from the Yankees.
