Chris Sale is Lights Out on the Road

Losers of eight of their last 10 games, the Chicago White Sox will send their best player to the mound in hopes of turning things around. Chris Sale will be tasked with attempting to mow down a Tigers team that lit up White Sox pitchers last night for 10 runs.

Shark Bites
  • Batters have a .346 AVG vs Pelfrey in day games this season.
  • Sale is 5-0 with a 1.59 ERA in six road starts this season.
  • The Tigers have won five of their last seven at home vs the White Sox.

Sale was somewhat average by his standards in three starts against the Tigers last season. In 18.1 innings of work against them he allowed eight runs off 16 hits, but he did strikeout 19 batters. Victor Martinez has been a nightmare for Sale to face, as the DH has recorded a .471 AVG and four home runs in 34 at-bats vs Sale.

The Tigers will counter with Mike Pelfrey who has been victimized by the long ball this season — already allowing 10 home runs in 10 starts to go along with an 0-5 record. In 129 combined at-bats against Pelfrey, Chicago batters have just one home run, but a .302 AVG.
