Chicago White Sox
The White Sox are in the midst of a nine-game homestand and are coming off a pummeling of the Texas Rangers over the past weekend. The White Sox swept the Rangers in a three-game set and outscored them 19-12.
The White Sox didn’t get off to a very good start in 2021, but have quickly managed to turn things around. They’ve won six of their last seven games starting with a doubleheader sweep against Boston. The White Sox are now two games out of first place in the AL Central.
The White Sox have been clicking both on the pitchers mound and at the plate in the last week. They blew out the Rangers 8-4 Sunday thanks to a 10 strikeout performance from Michael Kopech.
The White Sox scored all eight of their runs in that game in the first three innings. Reigning MVP Jose Abreu put together another stellar performance, driving in three runs and sending a long ball over the wall.
The White Sox had one of the more feared lineups in baseball coming into the season, and they’ve that lineup on full display so far. Chicago is second in the league with a .262 team average. Rookie Yermin Mercedes is leading the majors in average at .414 and is slugging the ball over the park. Him and Jose Abreu have combined for nine home runs this year while outfielder Adam Eaton leads the bunch with 18 RBI’s.
The Tigers roll into a nine game road trip with the worst winning percentage in baseball at .304. Contrary to Chicago, the Tigers started off the year at .500 and were playing decent baseball. fast forward to today, and the Tigers have now lost 10 of their last 11 games. Detroit has already posted two five-game losing streaks this year, with one still going.
The Tigers offense has been nonexistent of late. They’ve averaged 1.7 runs per game in their last 11 games and have been shut out three times already this season. A big problem has been their inability to cash in with runners in scoring position. They outhit the Royals Sunday but hit just 2 for 15 with runners in scoring position.
Jose Urena starts for the Tigers Sunday. He has made four starts this season, and has an 0-3 record with a 4.57 ERA. He has improved in his last few starts and has a 2.89 ERA sine his horrendous opening starter.
