Home field advantage has been critical when the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox meet. The home team has won eight of the past nine contests between the AL Central rivals – including a perfect 4-0 mark this season.
– Shark bites
- The Tigers are 6-14 in their past 20 games on the road.
- Todd Frazier is 2-for-24 with 10 strikeouts in the past six games.
- The OVER is 7-3 in the White Sox past 10 games with a closing total of 9.0 or higher.
Jordan Zimmermann takes to the bump coming off one of his worst starts of the season. Zimmermann allowed seven runs and eight hit in that outing, but the biggest issue was his six hits surrendered on two-strike counts. Though rare, Zimmermann has owned the White Sox in his career with a 2-0 record and a 1.83 ERA in three starts.
Miguel Gonzalez has done a great job at solidifying the backend of the White Sox’ rotation, as the late Spring Training signing has allowed two or fewer runs in five of his seven starts this season. Gonzalez has allowed just two earned runs across 12.1 innings in the month of June.
