Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox lineup has been struggling for much of the season this year. They are led by Melky Cabrera.
Cabrera is hitting .312 on the season with 25 doubles on the season and has hit 49 RBIs. Jose Abreu has turned it around since struggling early; he has hit 35 extra base hits and has knocked in 56 runs this season.
Todd Frazier has been struggling in the average category with a .211 average, but he has hit team high 29 home runs to go along with 69 RBIs. The Sox look to turn things around in this Tigers series.
The White Sox have James Shields on the mound Tuesday and he has been struggling. Shields is currently 5-12 on the season with a 4.68 E.R.A. and 86 strikeouts.
Shields received a win in his last start versus the Chicago Cubs. Shields threw 7.2 shutout innings where he gave up only 4 hits.
He walked 4 batters and struck out 5 in the win. He looks to step out Tuesday and have another good start.
The Detroit Tigers lineup has been strong for this whole season. They are led by Miguel Cabrera like usual.
Miggy is hitting .303 with 23 home runs and 66 RBIs; all of these stats lead Detroit. Victor Martinez is hitting .300 on the season with 31 extra base hits and has knocked in 60 runs on the season.
Ian Kinsler is having a solid season with 20 home runs and 57 RBIs to go with a .286 average.
The Tigers have Anibal Sanchez on the mound Tuesday and he has been struggling all season as well. Sanchez is currently 5-11 on the season with a 6.56 E.R.A. and 86 strikeouts.
Sanchez got hit around in his last start where he received a no decision. Sanchez pitched in 6 innings of work where he gave up 4 earned runs on 10 hits.
Sanchez failed to walk a batter and he struck out 5 in the no decision. He looks to battle back against this White Sox team.

Free Chicago White Sox vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
This game will have the potential to be a very high scoring baseball game because of the two pitchers struggling for much of this season. I’m taking the Tigers in this one.
I think that Shields’ last outing was a fluke and he will return to his old self in this one and the Tigers lineup will get the job done.
Look for Sanchez to be similar to what he has been, look for him to do just enough in order to get the “W” in this one.
