MLB: Sunday, September 17, 2017, Comerica Park, Detroit, Michigan, 1:10 pm ET

It’s the conclusion of a weekend set between the two worst teams in the AL Central in the Motor City. The Chicago White Sox play the last game of a four game series with the Detroit Tigers Sunday afternoon. Chicago pounded their way to a 17-7 win in the series opener Thursday afternoon to draw first blood. Detroit evened the series with a 3-2 walk-off victory Friday night. The pitching matchup for the third game of the series Saturday saw Reynaldo Lopez take the mound for the White Sox against Detroit’s Myles Jaye. First pitch in the game was set for 6:10 pm ET.

Chicago White Sox Hope to Climb From AL Central Basement

Chicago showed some fight but ended up coming up short in a walk-off defeat. The White Sox lost for just the second time in seven games with the defeat. Avisail Garcia and Matt Davidson (RBI) each had two hits for Chicago in the loss while Yoan Moncada hit his sixth homer of the season. Carson Fulmer turned in a quality start but left with a no-decision: he threw six innings, allowing a run on four hits with one walk and five strikeouts. Al Alburquerque (0-2) was saddled with the loss in relief: he allowed a run on no hits with a walk and a strikeout in one inning of work.

Dylan Covey makes his 16th appearance and 10th start of his rookie season for the White Sox in this contest. He is 0-5 with a 7.90 ERA, a 1.72 WHIP, 27 walks and 30 strikeouts while allowing 18 homers over 54.2 innings of work this season. In his last start, which came against the Royals on Tuesday, Covey took the loss. He allowed four runs on two hits with four walks and a strikeout over 5.2 innings of work. Covey is 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP, seven walks and three strikeouts over 14 innings in his last three starts. This marks his first career appearance against the Tigers. Covey makes his first career appearance or start at Comerica Park as a result.

Detroit Tigers Looking to Close Season Strong

Detroit nearly let another one slip away late but rallied to snap a six game losing skid by walking it off in the ninth. The Tigers moved two games ahead of the White Sox in the race for the basement in the AL Central. Alex Presley (run) was the only player with two hits for Detroit in the game as the team finished with a total of six. Tyler Collins added his fifth homer of the year while Nick Castellanos and Mikie Mahtook drove in runs. Anibal Sanchez recorded a no-decision after throwing six innings: he allowed a run on six hits with a walk and 11 strikeouts. Shane Greene (4-3) blew the save but vulture a win after throwing 1.1 scoreless innings: he allowed a hit and struck out one.

Matt Boyd takes the mound for his 24th appearance and 23rd start of the season for the Tigers in this contest. He is 5-10 with a 5.75 ERA, a 1.679 WHIP, 47 walks and 94 strikeouts over 114.1 innings of work this season. Boyd ran his winless stretch to eight starts after taking the loss in his last outing, which came in a start against the Indians on the road Tuesday. He threw five innings, allowing one run on six hits with one walk and five strikeouts in a 2-0 Tigers loss. Boyd is 0-2 with a 3.38 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP, five walks and 14 strikeouts over 16 innings in his last three starts. He makes his ninth career start against the White Sox here: he is 0-4 with a 6.13 ERA and a 1.739 WHIP over 39.2 innings of work. Boyd is 6-8 with a 4.84 ERA and a 1.386 WHIP over 26 appearances, 24 starts, covering 132 innings at Comerica Park in his career.

Trends:

Chicago

  • White Sox are 4-0 in their last 4 Sunday games

Detroit

  • Tigers are 1-4 in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a losing record
  • Tigers are 1-5 in their last 6 Sunday games.
  • Tigers are 0-8 in their last 8 during game 4 of a series

Both teams have nothing to play for other than trying to avoid being in the basement of the AL Central. Of course, there is the bonus of finishing at the bottom leads to a higher draft pick, which could only help replenish the farm system with a blue chip prospect. The Tigers have wilted recently with Boyd on the mound while Covey’s next win in the majors will give him one more than you. This one is a tough one to call but you have to like the White Sox’s younger guys than the inconsistent Tigers lineup. Look for Chicago to earn at least a split in the series.

Pick: Chicago White Sox +124
