The Detroit Tigers and the Chicago White Sox will meet up on the MLB diamond to kick off their series on Tuesday.

The Tigers are coming off a weekend set versus the Nationals. Detroit won on Saturday but lost the other two games of that series, 3-1 on Friday and 2-1 on Sunday in the finale.

For Tuesday’s game, the Tigers are sending Matthew Boyd out to the mound. Over 101.2 innings and a 5-6 record this year, Boyd has a 3.72 ERA with 129 Ks and 20 BBs.

Over on the White Sox’ side, they played the Twins this weekend. Chicago dropped Saturday's game 10-3 but got the other two, 6-4 on Friday and 4-3 in the Sunday game.

The Sox will be sending out Reynaldo Lopez in the start on Tuesday. Across his 92.2 innings and 4-7 record so far, Lopez has a 6.12 ERA with 83 Ks and 38 BBs.

The Tigers are 1-6 in their last seven in game one of a series and 4-10 in Boyd’s last 14 Tuesday starts. Detroit is 8-21 in Boyd’s last 29 road starts and 0-5 in his last five overall.

Meanwhile, the Sox are 4-0 in their last four after an off day and 4-1 in their last five in game one of a series. Chicago is 15-36 in their last 51 Tuesday games and 1-4 in the last five following a win.

Boyd has been pretty bumpy over his last three games. Over that stretch he’s given up 13 earned in 17.0 innings on a total of 18 hits. Boyd is also 0-2 in that span.

As for Lopez, he’s been okay over his last couple with six earned in 11.1 innings on 15 hits.

I’m not super-thrilled about either pitcher (or team for that matter) here, but I’m leaning toward the at-home Sox.
