Detroit Tigers at Chicago White Sox: Game Time, TV/Radio Coverage & Lineup - 6/9/2014


With the Detroit Tigers coming off winning 2 of 3 from the Boston Red Sox, they are looking to keep momentum on their side against their AL Central foe, the Chicago White Sox. After a disappointing and frustrating May, and a three game sweep at home to the Toronto Blue Jays to start June, everything began to click again(save for Joe Nathan) against the reigning World Series Champion BoSox.

Miguel Cabrera, who was removed out of last night’s game for a tight hamstring, will be in the lineup tonight as the DH.

When We Last Met

The Tigers last played the White Sox at the end of April, sweeping a short, two-game series in Chicago. While the first in the set was a hard fought battle with the winning run scored by the Tigers in the top of the ninth, the most recent game against Chicago featured domination of the White Sox lineup by Max Scherzer, who pitched 6 innings without giving up a run.

Rick Porcello(8-3, 3.69ERA) looks to continue his upward trend after a quality start that unfortunately ended in a loss to the Blue Jays on June 4th. Though Rick did get the loss, his performance was much improved over the terrible 12 hit, 8 run outing against Texas on May 24th.

Porcello has not yet faced off against the White Sox in the 2014 season, but last season went 4-0 in 6 starts and posted a 2.13ERA against the White Sox. Porcello had a 1.64 ERA in 22 innings pitched at U.S. Cellular field.

Hector Noesi(1-4, 5.29ERA) started against the Tigers the last time the two teams met and took the loss, pitching 3.2 innings, and giving up four runs on five hits.

Noesi did not face the Tigers in the 2013 season, but didn’t perform well against them in the 2012 season, pitching 5 innings and again giving up four runs on five hits.

    There is no way Miggy bats with man on bases. Kinsler is making home runs swings every at bat. Today he bats 3 time a with men on board and fail, leaving Miggy to open inning. Alex Avila is not doing any effort to improve. It is incredible with the shift he gives a double play. Solution: AJ should be second at bat and Avila at the bench.
