The Detroit Tigers look for a victory after splitting their last eight games. The Tigers have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Detroit Tigers have won four of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Miguel Cabrera leads the Tigers with 24 hits and seven RBI while Nicholas Castellanos and Jeimer Candelario have combined for 43 hits and 12 RBI. Daniel Norris gets the ball, and he is 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. Norris is 2-0 with a 2.05 ERA and 24 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox could use a win after losing five of their last seven games. The White Sox have allowed 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Chicago White Sox have lost five straight games when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Tim Anderson leads the White Sox with 31 hits and 14 RBI while Yoan Moncada and Leury Garcia have combined for 54 hits and 28 RBI. Carlos Rodon gets the ball, and he is 3-2 with a 2.89 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season. Rodon is 2-2 with a 5.10 ERA and 28 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.
The Tigers are 19-41 in their last 60 road games, 9-2 in Norris' last 11 starts with 4 days of rest and 1-4 in Norris' last 5 road starts. The White Sox are 10-3 in their last 13 Friday games, 19-44 in their last 63 games following an off day and 0-4 in Rodons last 4 home starts. The Tigers are 4-0 in Norris' last 4 starts vs. White Sox and 8-1 in the last 9 meetings in Chicago. The under is 8-3-1 in Rodons last 12 starts overall. The over is 11-4-2 in Norris' last 17 road starts.
We're getting plus money with the Tigers and Norris, a team that's found ways to win as of late and a pitcher who has allowed one run in his last eight innings. Norris just gave the Tigers five scoreless innings against the White Sox, while striking out six. The Chicago White Sox have had scoring issues as of late and just lost two of three to the horrible Baltimore Orioles. I'll take a shot at the plus money with the Tigers.
