The Detroit Tigers and the Chicago White Sox meet Sunday in MLB action from Guaranteed Rate Field. This will be the finale in a three-game weekend series. The White Sox secured a shutout victory in the opener, then on Saturday Chicago eked out a very strange win to keep it going. Check back all season long for free MLB picks at Sports Chat Place.

Detroit Tigers

The Tigers couldn’t get anything going on six team hits in the Friday opener of this series, eventually falling 3-0. In the Saturday game Detroit had just three hits in a 10-inning loss 2-1 (and all three runs were scored on wild pitches/passed balls). Michael Lorenzen put up 7.0 innings in the start with one earned, two hits, no walks and six Ks.

For the starter job on Sunday it’ll be Matthew Boyd. In his 10 starts this year Boyd is 3-4 with a 5.96 ERA and 44 Ks in 48.1 innings. Boyd is 42-66 with a 4.96 ERA in 169 career games (155 starts).

Chicago White Sox

Over on the White Sox’ side, they managed six team hits as well in the Friday opener. In game two Chicago won on a wild sequence of events—an intentional walk, a hit by pitch and a wild pitch. Starter Dylan Cease finished with 5.1 innings, one earned, two hits and three walks.

Michael Kopech will take the mound for the start on Sunday. Across 11 starts this year Kopech is 3-5 with a 4.52 ERA and 70 strikeouts over 61.2 innings. Kopech is 13-18 with a 3.84 career ERA in 84 games (44 starts).

The Tigers are 5-1 in their last six in game three of a series and 17-6 in their last 23 versus the AL Central. Detroit is 29-60 in their last 89 Sunday games.

Meanwhile, the White Sox are 5-18 in their last 23 in game three of a series and 2-6 in their last eight at home versus a lefty starter. The under is 28-13-3 in Chicago’s last 44 at home versus a lefty starter.


I’ll probably go with the White Sox. Also probably not touching it, though. Both starters could use a good outing, though. Kopech is coming off a loss to the Angels with 4.1 innings and four earned. That said, he had zero earned over 15.0 innings in his previous two starts (both wins). On Saturday the Sox got one of the strangest endings to any baseball game in recent memory. The good news is that the pitching staff performed admirably in a win; the bad news is that it took six different arms to get there.
