The Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox meet Saturday in MLB action at Guaranteed Rate Field.
The Detroit Tigers need a win after losing eight of their last 11 games. The Tigers have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Tigers have lost seven straight games when scoring three or less runs. Jeimer Candelario leads the Tigers with 48 hits and 28 RBI while Victor Reyes and Jonathan Schoop have combined for 91 hits and 36 RBI. Michael Fulmer gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 8.24 ERA and 17 strikeouts this season. Fulmer is 2-1 with a 2.98 ERA and 35 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The White Sox have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven straight games. The White Sox have won 11 of their last 13 games when scoring four or more runs. Jose Abreu leads the White Sox with 55 hits and 40 RBI while Tim Anderson and Eloy Jimenez have combined for 96 hits and 48 RBI. Reynaldo Lopez gets the ball, and he is 0-2 with a 8.38 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. Lopez is 3-4 with a 3.65 ERA and 64 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.
Will update with trends once they're released.
Michael Fulmer has allowed four runs and seven hits in his last 5.1 innings while Reynaldo Lopez has allowed five earned runs and 11 hits in his last nine innings. Fulmer has not been good this season and that's putting it nicely, as he's also allowing a .341 batting average and .415 on base percentage. The Chicago White Sox continue to pile up the victories and are being led by an explosive offense that's top five in the majors in pretty much ever major category. This is just a rough spot for the Tigers.
Give me the White Sox, and I'll take the RL to shave down a likely expensive ML price.
