Tonight, the Chicago White Sox begin a four-game series with AL Central rival, the Detroit Tigers, at Comerica Park in Detroit.
The White Sox have yet to win a series on the road this season, as they won one of three games against the Texas Rangers this past weekend, winning their game on Sunday by a 16-2 score.
Chicago will be sending John Danks to the mound as their starting pitcher, with a record of 1-0 to go with an ERA of 3.32.
Danks last pitched on April 16 against the Boston Red Sox. In that start, Danks had a no-decision. In six innings vs. Boston, Danks allowed one earned run on three hits and four walks. He struck out three.
The Tigers are starting Anibal Sanchez, who has an ERA of 3.21 with an overall record of 0-1.
In his last start on April 16 against the Cleveland Indians, Sanchez was charged with the loss, after allowing two earned runs in five innings. He only allowed two hits in the game and walked four. He finished with eight strikeouts.
This match-up of pitchers has the chance to be a very good one for the fact both have very respectable ERAs, and both will be facing some tough batters in the process.
The game will air on WCIU in Chicago and on Fox Sports in Detroit. The game can also be watched out of market on MLB.TV. On the radio, in Chicago, WSCR 670 will air the game. The game will also be on MLB Audio.
First pitch is scheduled for 6:05 CT.
