Detroit vs Chicago White Sox
Boyd pitched well in this last start, in which he yielded 1 run on 6 hits and struck out five batters through five innings in Tuesday's 0-2 loss in Cleveland.On the other hand, the 26-year-old went 0-5 with a 6.57 ERA in eight starts since the beginning of August, lasting less than six innings in six of those eight outings.
The left-hander has posted a 5.60 ERA in eleven home contests this season and what is also important to be noted: Boyd doesn't have many good memories from his previous eight starts against the White Sox, going 0-4 with a 6.13 ERA.He gave up 16 hits and 8 runs while walking three and striking out ten over 10 2/3 innings in the last two of them, a 2-8 loss at Guaranteed Rate Field on May 26 and a 1-7 loss in Chicago on Aug. 27.Jose Abreu is hittitng .556 (10-for-18) with a double, 2 HR and 4 RBI against him, Matt Davidson is 3-for-7 with a triple, homer, 3 RBI and three walks, Yolmer Sanchez has 3 hits in 7 at-bats off Boyd, Tim Anderson is 8-for-23 with two doubles and 2 RBI, while Tyler Saladino is 5-for-16 with a double, 3 RBI and a walk in their matchups.
Dylan Covey, who is looking for his first major league win, was tagged for 4 runs in 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's 3-4 loss at Kauffman Stadium - first start since his return from the disabled list on Aug. 15.The 26-year-old rookie has serious problems on the road, where he went 0-5 with a 9.32 ERA in nine appearances (seven starts), compared to a 0-0 record and a 4.76 ERA in six appearances (two starts) at Guaranteed Rate Field.
Covey, who will face the Tigers for the first time in his young career, couldn't make it through the sixth inning in seven of his previous nine MLB starts.
Detroit is last in the majors in bullpen ERA (5.36), while the Chicago White Sox's bullpen has posted a 4.38 ERA.
I expect more than ten runs in the series finale.
