This will be Scholtens’ first time facing the Tigers.

Lorenzen followed three quality starts by getting touched for five runs in 5.2 innings on Monday in a no-decision against the Royals in Kansas City. He surrendered five hits while striking out five and walking two.

Lorenzen has a 1-0 career record against the White Sox with a 3.63 ERA in six games (three starts).

In three starts at Comerica Park, Lorenzen is 2-0 with a 3.71 ERA. He is 0-1 with an 11.00 ERA in two starts in the day. The Tigers are 4-3 when Lorenzen starts, and he has three quality starts.

No Tigers hitters have ever faced Scholtens.

White Sox vs Tigers Betting Outlook

Andrew Vaughn hit a two-run home run and had three RBIs to lead the White Sox to its rout of the Tigers on Friday night.

Anderson had four of the White Sox’s 17 hits while Yoan Moncada had three hits and three RBIs. Andrew Benintendi, Vaughn, Jake Burger and Clint Frazier had two hits each and Grandal and Hanser Alberto drove in two runs apiece.

Alberto started at second base after being out of the lineup for four straight games because of left shoulder soreness.

The Tigers were limited to three hits.
