4-unit Play Take #928 Detroit Tigers over Pittsburgh Pirates (7:05pm EST) The Pittsburgh Pirates have the better pitcher on the hill on Wednesday, but there are plenty of reasons to like Detroit in this one. First off, the American League has once again dominated the National League in interleague play this season. So while the Pirates have the better record coming in, it doesn't mean that they are the better team when you consider the league differences. The Pirates have actually had the easiest schedule in all of baseball so far in 2015, and that's an underrated aspect of handicapping baseball. The Tigers have also been very tough to beat at home over the last several years. In fact, no one has been better in the American League over the last five years. The Pirates also don't come to Comerica Park very often, so familiarity is an issue for them. The Tigers offense is probably going to be the toughest one that A.J. Burnett has seen this season, especially when you add in the DH component with Victor Martinez. He's been out of the Tigers lineup for a good chunk of the season, but is back and starting to find his rhythm. The Tigers also have a much better bullpen this season, including a dependable closer in Joakim Soria. The line on this game isn't too far off, but the Tigers do deserve to be a slightly higher favorite. Take Detroit.
