White Sox Host Tigers At The Cell In Central Division Match

The White Sox will see the Detroit Tigers again this season, searching for their first win against the club, whom they've lost nine straight to by a combined margin of 65-20. The Sox are currently 8 1/2 games behind the first place Cleveland Indians and 3 1/2 games behind second place Detroit.

Pitching for Chicago will be Mark Buehrle. Buehrle has largely righted his ship this season and is currently 4-4 with a 3.91 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. He's coming off of a start at Toronto in which he gave up three runs on nine hits over 7.0 innings. In his last game against the Tigers the season, Buehrle pitched 5.2 innings and gave up six runs on eight hits. In that game, Alex Avila was 2-for-3 with two doubles, and Ryan Raburn was 1-for-3 with a home run.

The Tigers will counter with Andrew Oliver. Oliver will be making his second start of the year after pitching his major league debut against the Red Sox. In that game, he received a no-decision, but gave up just three runs on five hits over six innings.

The weather in Chicago is expected to be clear and warm, with a game time temperature in the mid-80s. First pitch will be at 7:10 P.M., CDT, and the game will be televised on CSN and FS-D.
