It won’t be an easy task actually, considering the fact that Pelfrey had problems in most of his previous ten starts in 2015, especially at Comerica Park, when he’s posted a 6.08 ERA in five games this year.
In addition to that, the 32-year-old right-hander went 0-4 with a 6.20 ERA in eight starts against the White Sox over the last three years.
Pelfrey has held Brett Lawrie to 1 hit in 5 at-bats in their matchups, but Alex Avila is hitting .286 (4-for-14), with 2 RBI and four walks against him, Jose Abreu is 3-for-8 with a double, Jimmy Rollins is 14-for-47, with a homer and 5 RBI, Avisail Garcia is 6-for-15, with a double and an RBI, while Austin Jackson has 5 hits in 16 at-bats off Pelfrey, with an RBI and two walks.
The Chicago White Sox will counter with their ace Chris Sale (9-1 with a 2.29 ERA), who threw seven solid innings in his last start on May 29, surrendering 7 hits and 2 runs of a 4-5 loss at Kansas City, with seven strikeouts.
Sale went 5-0 with a 1.59 ERA in his previous six road contests this year and what is also important to be noted: he’s posted a 2.43 ERA in eleven starts against the Tigers dating back to 2013.The left-hander yielded 1 run on 5 hits and struck out seven batters through seven innings in his last start versus Detroit on Oct. 2, 2015.
Victor Martinez is hitting .471 (16-for-34), with 4 HR and 9 RBI off Sale, Jose Iglesais has 4 hits in 11 at-bats, while J.D. Martinez is 6-for-22, with a two doubles, solo home runs and three walks against him.
On the other hand, Miguel Cabrera, James McCann, Ian Kinsler, Nick Castellanos and Mike Aviles are a combined 22-for-115, though Miguel Cabrera, Kinsler and Aviles have homered off Sale.
I think that the Chicago White Sox will tie the series with a win in that game.
