The Detroit Tigers and the Chicago White Sox meet in an AL Central division matchup in MLB action from Guaranteed Rate Field on Sunday.
The Detroit Tigers will try to rebound after a 14-0 beatdown loss to the White Sox on Saturday. Jorge Bonifacio had a double while Victor Reyes, Isaac Paredes, Travis Demeritte and Willi Castro all had base hits in the losing effort as Detroit cranked out just five hits as a team in the loss. Michael Fulmer took the loss, falling to 0-2 on the year after allowing five earned runs on nine hits over 2.2 innings of work. Spencer Turnbull will start here and is 4-2 with a 3.32 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. In his career, Turnbull is 0-2 with a 6.97 ERA and 14 strikeouts against the White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox will look to build on their solid offensive performance on Saturday. Jose Abreu led the way, going 4 for 4 with a pair of home runs and seven RBIs while Nomar Mazara had a double and two RBIs. Luis Robert, Edwin Encarnacion, Eloy Jimenez, Yasmani Grandal and Tim Anderson each had an RBI to finish off Chicago’s scoring as a team in the win with Anderson going 4 for 5 at the dish while Jimenez had a 3 for 4 day at the plate. Nick Madrigal added a pair of hits and Adam Engel chipped in a hit as well to finish off the offense for Chicago in the win. Reynaldo Lopez got the win to improve to 1-2 on the year after throwing five shutout innings, giving up just three hits while striking out a pair on the way to the win. Jonathan Stiever will start here and will make his major league debut.
Trends will be updated once they’ve been released.
I'd like to take the plus money with the Tigers and I've often said that Turnbull is the best pitcher that the Tigers have right now. However, he also has been inconsistent with his outings, and Turnbull's posting an ERA just south of seven in his career against the White Sox and I just don't see a way that the Tigers come out of this unscathed, especially with how well the White Sox have been swinging the bat lately. I'll take the White Sox on the run line in this one.
