The Detroit Tigers and the Chicago White Sox will meet for game two of their divisional series this Saturday from Guaranteed Rate Field.

White Sox Preview & Projected Starter

Chicago enters at 55-86 after defeating Detroit. The White Sox surprisingly opened a series strong, and they’ll attempt to take the rare 2-0 series lead Saturday. The Chicago offense is 4.72 scoring runs per game, while batting .235, with a .292 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.72 ERA, with a 1.21 WHIP. 

Jose Urena (0-4, 9.82 ERA, 9 Ks) will get the call for Chicago. The journeyman pitcher will be making his first appearance since April here for the White Sox. Urena struggled through five August starts for the Rockies, and he’ll attempt to turn the tide as the season comes to a close.  

White Sox Player Trends & Props

Andrew Vaughn snapped a three-game hitless streak three hits in the game two loss, and he’s posting splits of .255/18/70.

Eloy Jiménez has totaled multiple bases  in three of the previous six contests, and he’s totaled fifteen homers and 54 RBI for the season, while leading the Sox in batting (.273).

Yoán Moncada homered in last night’s defeat, and he’s recorded a hit in tell of the last eleven games.

Andrew Benintendi has collected a hit in four of the last five games, and he’s now tied with Robert Jr. for the team-lead in hits (132), while being just team Jimenez for the team-lead in batting at .272.


Tigers Preview & Projected Starter

Detroit moved to 64-77 after losing to Chicago. The Tigers were silenced at home last night, and they’ll look to get something going here in game two. The Detroit offense is scoring 3.04 runs per game, while batting .230, with a .300 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.41 ERA, with a 1.26 WHIP. 

Tarik Skubal (3-3, 3.93 ERA, 59 Ks) will get the call for Detroit. The fourth-year lefty had another tough road spot last week in Fenway, allowing four runs thru 5.1 innings to take his second loss of the season. Skubal has now given up four runs or more in each of his three road starts, and he’ll face another test away from home here in Cleveland. 

Tigers Player Trends & Props

Spencer Torkelson leads Detroit in hits (117), home runs (25), and RBI (72). 

Kerry Carpenter has recorded a hit in seven of his last ten games, and he’s second on team in both homers (20) and runs batted in (56), while batting .289.

Miguel Cabrera will make his final appearance at Yankees Stadium this week, and he collected six hits in two wins over the White Sox.

Leading batter Riley Greene (.288) may miss the series after picking up an injury in Chicago.

Corey’s Free Pick

A Chicago game one win has been rare to come across this season, and I believe it will be short lived, as Detroit comes in a prime position to bounce back. The Tigers will get a crack at Jose Urena, and there’s a good chance they find success. Tarik Skubal pitched great in the Southside, and another solid outing from him with some run support should be all the Tigers need to get back into the win column. Back Detroit for this divisional matchup.
