Tigers vs Wiz Pick: KIA Tigers

The Wiz are going to have a very long season on the season. The Wiz have not been able to pitch the ball very well at all and the starter that is heading to the mound for the Wiz in this game was throttled in his last game. Look for that type of game play to continue for the Wiz here who struggle to do much of anything pitching or defensively as the Tigers are able to secure another win.
