The struggling Detroit Tigers roll into Guaranteed Rate Field to battle the first place AL Central ‘red hot’ Chicago White Sox. Tigers enter this game on a big dip only totaling 2 runs in their last two outings. Tigers are also traveling from St. Louis to Chicago while the White Sox were off yesterday.
Detroit Tigers will send (RHP) Casey Mize to the mound with a 6.75 ERA and 16 K’s. Chicago White Sox send out their ace tonight (RHP) Lucas Giolito with a 3.29 ERA and 75 K’s. Mize is a talented prospect for the Tigers who has a good recent history against the White Sox batting order. Giolito was sharp in his last outing against the Royals and he has ran into trouble against the Tigers before. However, Giolito has been pitching well at home recently and I believe he holds firm tonight. Lucas Giolito (player-prop) Over 8.5 strikeouts (+104) has tremendous value. I believe Giolito gets close to 12 total strikeouts tonight.
This Tigers hitting rotation in current form has looked sluggish. Although they haven’t traveled far for this game that doesn’t make things any easier on them. Mize cooled off in his last start on the mound against the Twins. Not a good time to be cooling of when the White Sox are hitting the ball extremely well. Tonight the White Sox will be looking for some sweet revenge on Mize.
My wager: White Sox TT Runs OVER 4.5 (-122).
