The Detroit Tigers and the Chicago White Sox meet in an AL Central division matchup in MLB action from Guaranteed Rate Field on Friday. Let’s dive into the starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.
Starting Pitching Matchup
Reese Olson will get the start for the Tigers and will be making his major league debut in this game. The White Sox do not have a starting pitcher announced at the time that this article was posted.
Detroit’s 6-5 win back on May 28th, made it back-to-back wins for the Tigers and wins in six of the last seven meetings for Detroit over the White Sox.
I’m backing the Over here. All the meetings this season have seen at least 9 runs and the last three topped double digits. Reese Olson is a nice prospect for the Tigers that can get strikeouts, but he also had a brutal ERA over six in AAA this season. On the other side, I don’t expect the White Sox to slow down Detroit for much of anything and I think this one soars into double digits.
