White Sox vs Tigers Probable Pitchers
Lance Lynn (3-5, 6.28) is scheduled to start for the White Sox against rookie left-hander Joey Wentz (1-4, 7.45). Both will be pitching on five days of rest.
Lynn vs Wentz
Lynn has won his last two starts after beginning the season 1-5, including beating the Kansas City Royals on Sunday in Chicago. He pitched six innings and gave up two runs, four hits and two walks while striking out six.
Lynn is 7-3 against the Tigers in his career with a 3.39 ERA in 11 starts.
In five starts on the road this season, Lynn has a 1-2 record and a 6.35 ERA. He is 2-3 with a 5.40 ERA in seven outings at night. Lynn has three quality starts in 10 turns and the White Sox are 3-7 when he pitches.
Same thing, different day, as Lance Lynn's four-seamer & cutter held it down. He continued to locate it up & generate swings & misses.
Mentioned this before, but Lynn ran into some misfortune, with quality strikeout skills.

Wentz was hammered in his last start Sunday, allowing six runs and 10 hits in just two innings in a road loss to the Washington Nationals. He struck out one and walked none.

Wentz is winless in five starts at Comerica Park this season, going 0-1 with a 6.65 ERA. At night, he is 1-1 with a 4.29 ERA. Wentz has yet to record a quality start in nine tries but the Tigers are 4-5 when he toes the slab.
