Game notes: Casey Mize will be looking for more run support and bullpen help than his fellow starting rotation member Reese Olson got Monday against the Atlanta Braves.

Olson held the Braves hitters scoreless through six innings and the Tigers led 1-0 when he left the first game of the three-game series Monday, but the bullpen gave up a run in the seventh and eighth innings as the Tigers' offense stayed quiet.

Monday's loss was the third time in the last four games the Tigers have scored two runs or less, with one 13-run outburst in between that now looks like a clear outlier for an otherwise struggling unit.

As the Tigers' all-or-nothing offense tries to find some consistency, former No. 1 overall pick Casey Mize will take the mound looking for the same thing. Mize is coming off one of his strongest starts of the year and it came at a good time as he had previously been struggling to find success. In the four games prior, Mize had an abysmal 8.22 ERA and batters had a ridiculous average of .423 as the starter managed to complete just 15⅓ innings over those four starts.

Mize finally settled in when facing the Washington Nationals last time out, completing six innings and allowing just one earned run and four hits as the Tigers got a 7-2 win. However, he still only struck out four batters and induced just three swings-and-misses, a sign that Mize's stuff is not really fooling MLB hitters and a bad recipe for consistent results.

With the Tigers now four games below .500, they'll need another strong outing from Mize as he keeps working his way back from a series of injuries that kept him off the field for almost two full seasons.

After Tuesday's game, the Tigers finish up their series with the Atlanta Braves with a 12:20 p.m. start before an off day Thursday.
