Alejandro De Aza homered on the second pitch of the game off Justin Verlander to supply the White Sox only offense thus far, but Tigers outfielder Brennan Boesch tied the contest with a solo homer of his own to tie the game at 1-1 through five innings of play.

Other than the Boesch home run, Sale has pitched marvelously allowing only one other hit while striking out three. Verlander has also pitched well, settling down after the De Aza lead off blast to strike out eight and allow only two more hits.

This contest weighs heavily on the postseason race the AL. Chicago entered this series with a slight lead on the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central, but after dropping the first two contests of this series, they find themselves with only a one-game lead.
