The Chicago White Sox had a really good game at the plate and their pitching was just good enough to win the game against a struggling Detroit Tigers team.

The Chicago White Sox defeated the Detroit Tigers by a final score of 7-4. The offense was there from the very first inning and they never looked back. They got out to a 2-0 lead before their ace Lucas Giolito would even go to the mound and throw a pitch.

Giolito was good but not as good as he can be. He has shown this season that he has the stuff to be an ace but he didn’t have his command in this game as much as he has in many games this season. It would eventually get tied up because Detroit found a way to get Giolito for two, but the offense carried him and allowed him to earn a victory despite not being the best he can be.

To say the offense backed Giolito is actually an understatement. Every single guy in the starting lineup had at least one hit in a 14 hit team effort. Those 14 hits led to seven runs. The offense has struggled in the second half but they appear to be playing better with each game that passes now. They need to keep it up if they want to go into 2020 with some momentum and feeling good about how they finished.

Now, they have to take what they did in this game and bring it to the doubleheader they have today. They are going to play the Tigers twice and they really should win both. The Tigers have the worst record in all of baseball and the White Sox should be able to exploit them again, especially in a doubleheader if they can reduce their available pitchers.

Dylan Cease will get the start for Chicago and Daniel Norris will be on the bump for Detroit. Cease made his MLB debut last month against the Tigers and he did well and that was before Detroit lost some pieces at the trade deadline. Game two is a little bit more of a tough one to predict as Hector Santiago goes for the Sox against Tigers pitcher Drew VerHagen. These are two guys who don’t start often so this one could be a relatively offensive-minded game.

The White Sox are not a playoff team just yet but they need to have a good day on Tuesday against a team that has lost four in a row and 2-8 in their last ten. If you think you will win simply because you are a better team you will be destroyed, but the White Sox need to take care of business against the 32-76 Tigers. Hopefully, this is a fun day for White Sox fans.
