The division rival Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians are set to renew hostilities on Friday when they meet at Progressive Field.

The Tigers will trot Jordan Zimmermann out to the mound in this one. Right hander Zimmermann has a 5-6 record and a 5.58 ERA this season.

The Indians will counter Zimmermann with Carlos Carrasco. Right hander Carrasco has a 3.50 ERA to go along with a 9-3 record this season.

Zimmermann attempts to exact revenge against Cleveland after a four-run sixth inning led to his demise on Saturday. “That’s the way it’s been going for me. I’ve been pitching well and I’m just not getting the results,” said the 31-year-old, who fell to 0-2 in his last five outings after permitting five hits versus the Indians in 5 2/3 frames. Zimmermann has been plagued by the home run ball all season, surrendering four in the last three outings and 21 in 16 starts.

Carrasco improved to 4-0 in his last five starts overall and 2-1 with a 2.29 ERA in three outings versus Detroit this season after yielding one run on four hits with seven strikeouts on Saturday. The 30-year-old Venezuelan retired his final 10 batters to highlight a bounce-back performance following a disastrous outing in which he gave up eight earned runs in 3 1/3 innings against Texas on June 26. Carrasco has allowed two runs or fewer in 11 of his 16 trips to the mound this season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Indians listed as 220-moneyline favorites versus the Tigers, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

Victor Martinez aims to reach the 2,000-hit plateau against his former team on Friday as the visiting Detroit Tigers open a three-game series against the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field. The 38-year-old Venezuelan, who resides one hit shy of the milestone, is vying to become the ninth active player to reach 2,000 when he faces the team with which he played from 2002-09.

Martinez recorded back-to-back two-hit, two-RBI performances to open a three-game series versus San Francisco before sitting out Detroit’s 6-2 win in the finale on Thursday afternoon. The veteran is just 7-for-36 in his career against Friday starter Carlos Carrasco, although fellow 2,000-hit alum Miguel Cabrera is 11-for-40 versus the right-hander. While the Tigers finished what effectively became a nine-game homestand with a 5-4 mark, the Indians temporarily stopped the bleeding of their issues at Progressive Field as Thursday’s 11-2 rout of San Diego improved the club to 19-23 at home. Jose Ramirez, who has 13 hits in his last eight games, launched a two-run homer on Thursday and did the same against Friday starter Jordan Zimmermann in a 4-1 victory against Detroit on Saturday.

The Indians were a 11-2 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Padres. That made winners of bettors who got Cleveland at -194 on the moneyline, while the total score (13) was good news for OVER bettors.

Last time out for Detroit, they were a 6-2 winner as they battled the Giants on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Tigers at -145 were rewarded, while the 8 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
