The Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox square off Saturday night in a MLB contest at Comerica Park. The Detroit Tigers look for a win after splitting their last 8 games. The Chicago White Sox look for a win after splitting their last 6 games. 

The Chicago White Sox have scored 10 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 9 games. The White Sox have won 10 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Jose Abreu leads the White Sox with 171 hits and 71 RBI, while Andrew Vaughn and Luis Robert have combined for 241 hits and 125 RBI. Johnny Cueto gets the ball, and he is 7-8 with a 3.09 ERA and 88 strikeouts this season. Cueto is 2-2 with a 2.34 ERA and 25 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.

The Detroit Tigers have scored 7 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 5 straight games. The Tigers have lost 6 of their last 7 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Javier Baez leads the Tigers with 117 hits and 56 RBI, while Harold Castro and Miguel Cabrera have combined for 192 hits and 78 RBI. Eduardo Rodriguez gets the ball, and he is 3-5 with a 4.50 ERA and 52 strikeouts this season. Rodriguez is 2-0 with a 3.97 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.

The White Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games and 6-2 in their last 8 overall. The Tigers are 7-19 in their last 26 home games and 18-42 in their last 60 overall. The over is 5-2-1 in White Sox last 8 overall. The over is 11-4-3 in Tigers last 18 overall. The White Sox are 42-15 in the last 57 meetings.

The Chicago White Sox simply can't afford to blow games against the Tigers if they're going to keep their playoff hopes alive. Johnny Cueto has been solid this season, and he's actually been better on the road, where he has a 2.30 ERA. Eduardo Rodriguez has been a hit or miss pitcher, and he hasn't been great at home this year where he has a 4.72 ERA and .275 allowed batting average. No excuses for the White Sox here. I'll lay the juice.
