Dylan Cease reaches a remarkable milestone vs Tigers
Tuesday’s victory over the Detroit Tigers had many interesting meanings behind it. It meant that the Chicago White Sox could indeed win a close game and not allow an opponent to come storming back.
It also meant that they could continue to overcome adversity as best they can with all the players that they currently have on the injured list. The win also gave the White Sox some momentum which they so badly need.
There was one important milestone that came out of the game that some people may not know. It is that starting pitcher Dylan Cease has managed to go 10-0 against the Tigers in his lifetime of pitching against them. A perfect record. No losses. That is something that is truly amazing.
Somehow Cease seems to have complete control over the Tigers when he pitches against them and that’s something that the White Sox surely covet. Ten wins against Major League Baseball team with no losses is not a joke in today’s game by any means.
Dylan Cease absolutely owns the Detroit Tigers when he faces them.
This is quite a feat by a guy that’s slowly starting to build himself up to be one of the best pitchers in the Sox rotation and perhaps one of the best pitchers in all of Major League Baseball.
There is just something about the Tigers that Cease seems to feed upon and take advantage of. Whether they struggle with his style of pitching or he just “has their number”, Cease does very well against them. The White Sox, as a whole, seem to do well against the Tigers.
Cease certainly doesn’t win these games on his own. He has help from the offense which seems to light up when the Tigers are around. In particular, Jose Abreu has done wonders against Detroit in his career and this has helped Cease earn his 10-0 record.
It’s been a team effort and with a combination of great pitching and hitting. Ceases’ time at the mound on Tuesday night was productive. He gave up seven hits, one unearned run, and had just one walk. He also managed to strike out eight batters on the night.
In his career versus the Tigers, Cease has a 1.91 ERA. He has faced the Tigers 11 total times winning ten times. It will be exciting to see if Cease can continue this streak when he’s given another opportunity. It would be great for the Sox and Cease.
