Detroit has won four of their last ten games.

The Tigers are 5-3 in the series over the last eight games.

Skubal allowed three earned runs and four hits over six innings while striking out seven in Tuesday’s loss to the Twins. He recorded seven strikeouts over seven scoreless innings in a win over the Phillies prior to that start.

Ashcraft allowed three runs on four hits in five innings in a win over the Yankees on Tuesday.  He suffered a loss in his prior start.
