Eloy Jimenez added a sacrifice fly in the 11th to put the White Sox up 4-2. That run proved important when the Tigers closed to 4-3 on Baez’s pinch-hit RBI single in the bottom half before Chicago held on.
White Sox center field Luis Robert returned to the lineup after not starting the previous two games because of a hand injury. He went 0 for 4 with a strikeout.
Baez, the Tigers’ shortstop, was a late scratch from the starting lineup with right knee soreness. He could serve as the designated hitter Sunday.

White Sox vs Tigers Prediction
Neither starting pitcher inspires much confidence in this game nor does either team. But since we’re required to, go with a White Sox team that should be playing with a certain amount of desperation.
