Hunter Brown is set to start on Tuesday night, and it will be just his second appearance of the season. Brown threw six shutout innings in his debut last week, and he is facing an offense that doesn’t do a ton of damage.

Yordan Alvarez and Kyle Tucker have been the biggest bats in the Astros lineup. Alvarez leads the team with 32 home runs while Tucker has driven in a team-high 93 runs.

Tigers Terrible at the Plate

The Detroit Tigers couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start at the plate to begin the season and those bats have remained cool. After getting shut out on Monday night, manager A.J. Hinch said, “We made a couple young mistakes early, because we’re struggling to score and we’re trying to make things happen.

A quick look at the stats tells you all you need to know about this Detroit team, which has hit just 88 home runs. Detroit has scored nearly 170 less runs than the Astros and just hasn’t been able to put things together.

The pitching hasn’t been much better for the Tigers, who have a team ERA of 4.13. Right-hander Drew Hutchison will try to turn things around for the Tigers, but he is just 2-7 with a 4.08 ERA.
