Pick

The Tigers come into this matchup looking for another series win against the White Sox, while Chicago is just looking to finish the season and get to next year. Detroit has been decently competitive this season, but they are only 30-41 at home this year. Detroit is starting Sawyer Gipson-Long, who is making his MLB debut. Chicago is starting Jesse Scholtens, who has allowed 5 earned runs in three of his last four starts. Scholtens has not been sharp recently, so I am taking Detroit to get the win in this game.
