After rain forced the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers to scrap the first game of Friday's doubleheader, the teams will again try to play a twin bill starting Saturday afternoon. Detroit had another scoring opportunity in the fourth with runners on first and second, but Danish was able to escape striking out Iglesias and Romaine flew out to center. The White Sox are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series, 5-13 in their last 18 games on grass and 2-5 in their last 7 vs. In five innings of work, Danish threw 104 pitches allowing three hits, six walks, and six strikeouts in the White Sox 3-0 victory.
"It was a long day", Abreu said through an interpreter. The third inning was his first 1-2-3 inning getting Cabrera to fly out and striking out Martinez and Upton. Pitcher William Cuevas was designated for assignment.
Because of the time away, Hahn said Robert will head to the club's academy in the Dominican Republic and train toward joining the White Sox Dominican summer league team in the coming weeks. However, since I'm here to give picks, I'm siding with the Tigers.
Jones hit.150 with one home run and four RBIs over 16 games to start the season in Detroit. The White Sox, meanwhile, rank 28th in the majors in this category, drawing a walk every 14.3 PA. Engel scored on Garcia's triple in his major league debut.
"We have been able to accomplish a lot in terms of spreading our (international) pools over the last several years, but now we have a chance to get potentially such an impactful talent", said Rick Hahn, the White Sox general manager and vice president. Covey is 0-4 with an 8.12 ERA in eight starts.
The Tigers plan to recall right-hander Buck Farmer from Triple-A Toledo to start the opener on Friday.
Over the course of an even 79 innings of work, Farmer has registered a 6.84 ERA in addition to a 0-6 record, 62 strikeouts and 42 walks.
