For the 2nd time in less than a week, two of the best pitchers in baseball will meet.
Justin Verlander and the Tigers head into Chicago to take on Chris Sale and the White Sox on Monday afternoon for an AL Central showdown.
Detroit continues to stick around in the AL Central and while they’ll get their shot at the first place Indians later this month, focusing on the Wild Card for right now may be the best option.
Detroit went into Kansas City and took 2 of 3 as they continue to hold onto the 2nd Wild Card spot in the American League.
The Tigers have now gone 10-4 over their last 14 games, thanks in large part to OF Justin Upton. The production from him during the stretch as sparked this lineup, as Detroit is finally seeing what they paid for in the offseason.
Justin Verlander gets the ball for the Tigers, as he remains red hot.
Verlander is in a 10-2 stretch and has allowed 2 runs or less in 11 of his last 12 outings.
He earned a no decision last week against Chicago, allowing back to back solo homeruns in the 5th inning for the only 2 runs against him.
Chicago White Sox
Chicago will have plenty of chances to play the spoiler down the stretch of this month, but holding onto a lead is something they must figure out how to do.
The White Sox led in all 3 games last week in Detroit, but ultimately blew each one and got swept away after it was all said and done.
Chicago has not won a series against a divisional opponent in over 2 months either.
They’ll send out Chris Sale, who ended up coughing up that 2-0 lead the White Sox gave him last week against Verlander.
Sale had a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the 8th with 2 outs when JD Martinez ripped a game tying single. Sale did not factor in the decision, but has won just 1 time in 8 starts since the break.
