Two teams heading in opposite directions square off Thursday as the Chicago White Sox host the Detroit Tigers in the finale of the three-game series.
These teams played Tuesday with a surprising 5-2 win for the Tigers. Detroit rallied down 1-2 with 3 runs in the top of the 7th then added another insurance run in the top of the 8th to put the game out of reach.
They play again on Wednesday night.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox are in the midst of a nine-game homestand and are coming off a surprising loss Tuesday night 5-2 by the league worst Detroit Tigers. They held a 2-1 lead entering the 7th but were unable to hold on late.
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 eight 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 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 rolled 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 but fast forward to today and the Tigers have now lost 10 of their last 12 games.
Detroit was able to end their 5 game skid Tuesday with a 5-2 win over Chicago in the series opener. Niko Goodrum’s two-run homer to right-center field pushed his team ahead by two runs in the top of the 7th inning.
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.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

- Tigers are 2-8 in last 10 overall
Free Chicago White Sox vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
Despite these teams records the White Sox have won several of their games by close margins while the Tigers have lost in slim deficits.
Matthew Boyd is on the mound for the Tigers and he’s had a nice season despite his 2-2 record with a 1.82 ERA. Dylan Cease is boasting a 4.15 ERA and has walked 12 batters in only 17 innings.
This should be a low scoring affair and I feel the Tigers pitching will keep this one close enough to cover.
