The Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers will meet up for game one of their doubleheader on Tuesday.

In the Monday opener of this set, the White Sox scored three in the eighth and held on for a 7-4 win.

For Tuesday’s game one, the White Sox will send out Dylan Cease in the start. Over his 28.0 innings and 1-4 record this year, Cease has a 6.43 ERA with 27 Ks and 14 BBs.

Chicago posted 14 hits in the win Monday. Tim Anderson led the way with three knocks and two runs.

Over on the Tigers’ side, they’re going with Daniel Norris on Tuesday. Across 111.2 innings and a 3-8 record so far, Norris has a 4.67 ERA with 95 Ks and 29 BBs.

Detroit put up 11 hits in the Monday loss. JaCoby Jones had a great offensive night with a solo homer and a triple.

The White Sox are 14-38 in their last 52 Tuesday games and 0-4 in their last four in game two of a series. Chicago is 0-4 in Cease’s last four starts and the under is 5-0 in their last five in game two of a series.

Meanwhile, the Tigers are 12-41 in their last 53 in game two of a series and 0-4 in their last four Tuesday games. Detroit is 6-20 in Norris’ last 26 home starts and 7-25 in his last 32 starts.

Cease has seen a relatively limited amount of action this season, and the returns haven’t been great. He’s lost his last four straight starts, giving up 17 earned runs over a span of 23.0 innings.

As for Norris, he had some difficulties last month but has given up just three earned in 15.1 innings over his last trio. I like Norris to keep rolling here so I’ll take the Tigers.
