The Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers meet Monday in MLB action at Comerica Park.

The Chicago White Sox could use a win after losing 10 of their last 14 games. The White Sox have scored 16 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in nine of their last 12 games. The Chicago White Sox have lost 10 straight games when scoring three or less runs. Leury Garcia leads the White Sox with 118 hits and 33 RBI while Jose Abreu and Yoan Moncada have combined for 226 hits and 136 RBI. Lucas Giolito gets the ball, and he is 11-5 with a 3.39 ERA and 150 strikeouts this season. Giolito is 3-2 with a 5.01 ERA and 30 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.

The Detroit Tigers could use a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Tigers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Detroit Tigers have lost five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Miguel Cabrera leads the Tigers with 99 hits and 43 RBI while Niko Goodrum and Christin Stewart have combined for 160 hits and 72 RBI. The Detroit Tigers didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.

The White Sox are 8-20 in their last 28 road games, 7-3 in Giolito's last 10 road starts and 1-4 in Giolito's last 5 starts. The Tigers are 23-47 in their last 70 during game 1 of a series, 15-45 in their last 60 home games and 1-7 in their last 8 Monday games. The White Sox are 27-55 in the last 82 meetings in Detroit and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 5-1-2 in Tigers last 8 overall. The under is 5-1 in Giolito's last 6 starts overall.

I want nothing to do with either one of these teams, as they're both piling up the losses left and right while counting the days until the offseason. With that said, Giolito has been a decent pitcher for the most part this season and is coming off seven strong innings against the Mets, allowing just three hits and one run. The Detroit Tigers are also still dead last in terms of money burned this season and have won just 10 games since June 1. I'm going to continue fading the Tigers, even if the White Sox have issues of their own.
