It’s been an MLB season of disappointment for both the Chicago White Sox (74-70, 39-33 away) and Detroit Tigers (54-89, 30-43 home).

Three games behind the leading Cleveland Guardians, time is running out for the White Sox to defend their AL Central title. At the other end of the spectrum, the Tigers are just two games ahead of the Oakland Athletics in the duel to avoid the ignominy of finishing as the worst team in the American League.

When facing each other, though, there’s been little in the way of disappointment for Chicago. The White Sox are 5-0 straight up and against the runline in the last five games facing the Tigers. Chicago is 10-2 SU and ATR over the past 12 meetings between the two clubs.

Opening a weekend series, it’s the visiting White Sox who are -155 favorites over the Tigers. Detroit is 25-26 ATR as a home underdog this season.

White Sox vs Tigers Probable Pitchers

At times during August, White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito looked to be finding his groove. He was 4-2 for the month, but with a 5.68 ERA. In his two August losses, Giolito surrendered 12 earned runs in 8.1 innings of work.

So far in September, Giolito is 0-1 with a 4.09 ERA. He’s in the bottom 2% of MLB pitchers in Max EV (117.4) this season.

His up and down work has also been evident when he’s facing Detroit. Giolito is 1-1 in two starts against the Tigers this season with a 5.93 ERA.

Giolito vs Manning Stats

1.49 WHIP 1.22
2.94 SO/W Ratio 2.79

When he has pitched, Tigers right-hander Matt Manning hasn’t pitched all that poorly. He just hasn’t pitched all that often.

Returning to the Detroit’s MLB lineup on August 2, Manning had been out since suffering inflammation in his pitching shoulder on April 16. He’s worked at least five innings in six of eight starts since returning.

Manning is 2-1 over his past four starts, but did surrender a season-high seven earned runs over 2.1 innings pitched in a loss to Seattle. Manning has started against the White Sox five times. He’s 0-1 with a 6.43 ERA.

Batting Average vs Starting Pitchers

Tigers Batters Batting Average vs Giolito Rays Batters Batting Average vs Manning
Akil Baddoo .385 Elvis Andrus .500
Javier Baez .368 Eloy Jimenez .333
Jeimer Candelario .314 AJ Pollock .500
Eric Haase .353 Gavin Sheets .333
Jonathan Schoop .306 Andrew Vaughn .500

Detroit’s Eric Haase is 6-for-17 (.353) with two homers and five RBI off of Giolito. Javier Baez is 7-for-19 (.368) with a homer and six RBI. Jeimer Candelario is 11-for-35 (.314) with a home and five RBI. Jonathan Schoop is 11-for-36 (.306) and has hit a solo homer. Akil Baddoo is 5-for-13 (.385) with two RBI.

For the White Sox, Elvis Andrus (1-for-2), AJ Pollock (1-for-2) and Andrew Vaughn (3-for-6) are all batting .500 against Manning. Eloy Jimenez and Gavin Sheets are both 3-for-9 (.333). Jimenez has driven in two runs. Yasmani Grandal has homered and driven in a pair of runs.

White Sox vs Tigers Prediction

Manning has allowed two earned runs of fewer in seven of his 10 starts, including the last two.

While Chicago is six games above .500 on the road this season, the White Sox are 7-6 SU over their past 13 away games. However, Detroit has lost five home games in a row and is 1-8 SU over the past nine games at Comerica Park.
