The Detroit Tigers could use a win here to snap a six-game losing streak. The Tigers allowed 17 runs in Thursday’s loss and four or more runs in 11 of their last 13 games. The Detroit Tigers have lost 13 of their last 15 games when allowing more than two runs. Offensively, Nicholas Castellanos leads the Tigers with 146 hits and 87 RBI while Ian Kinsler and Jose Iglesias have combined for 228 hits and 97 RBI. Anibal Sanchez gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 7.43 ERA and 73 strikeouts this season. Sanchez is 3-6 with a 4.86 ERA and 64 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 3-7 in their last 10 Friday games, 5-16 in their last 21 during game 2 of a series and 15-40 in their last 55 road games. The Tigers are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 1-5 in their last 6 Friday games and 1-4 in Sanchezs last 5 starts. The Tigers are 2-5 in Sanchezs last 7 home starts vs. White Sox, 2-6 in Sanchezs last 8 starts vs. White Sox and the over is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Detroit.
Sanchez has been rocked damn near all season, as he's allowing a .328 batting average and has given up four or more runs in four of his last five games. Fulmer has just 12 innings under his belt this season, but he's given up just two runs in his last 10.2 innings and is allowing a .143 batting average in six innings on the road. Not to mention the Tigers can't buy a victory right now. So, I'll gladly take the better pitcher and the team in better form for the plus money in this spot.
