Dylan Covey allowed five runs on seven hits in a 12-0 loss to the Tigers. The White Sox mustered just one hit against Matthew Boyd.

The Chicago White Sox mustered just one hit against Detroit starting pitcher Matthew Boyd. And that hit came in the ninth inning. Tim Anderson hit a double to give the Sox their only hit of the game. Dylan Covey meanwhile allowed five runs on seven hits and didn’t make it out of the fourth inning. The Tigers blanked the White Sox 12-0 in the series finale.

Nothing went right in this game. Covey struggled again and the offense was non-existent. He really struggled all game and is now 0-6 with an 8.18 ERA. The bullpen wasn’t much better. In relief Chris Beck allowed four runs in his two innings of work and Mike Pelfrey allowed three runs in his 2.1 innings.

It was a rough afternoon for the offense coming off a game where they scored 10 runs. Boyd effectively shut this offense down and had a no hitter with one out to go. Luckily for the White Sox, Anderson would come through with a double, giving them their lone hit. Not what Rick Renteria was looking for out of his team against a divisional foe however.

With 13 games to go, the organization is now hoping to avoid losing 100 games. They travel to Houston for three games with the American League West Champion Astros, then come home for seven games against the Royals and Angels before finishing on the road against the Indians. It’s going to be a tough final stretch but there’s no reason they can’t win three games to avoid a 100 loss season.

The White Sox will have Monday off before opening up a three game set with the Astros. Lucas Giolito will look to keep his hot streak going. The rookie is 2-2 with a 2.56 ERA. He’s only allowed five runs in his last four starts. The Astros will send right hander Collin McHugh to the bump. McHugh is 2-2 with a 3.61 ERA in nine starts.
