Detroit Tigers Lose Close Game To White Sox

Max Scherzer didn’t have his best control today, and a base on balls in the second inning put a runner on base for White Sox rookie outfielder Al De Aza to reach the bleachers with a 2-run homer in his first at-bat in the Big Leagues this season.  To his credit, Scherzer held the Sox in check the rest of the way. 

The Tiger bats were quiet today, except for the “whiffing” sound they made while striking out 13 times.  They did manage to put 9 runners in scoring position despite only collecting 7 hits.  Detroit just couldn’t get a clutch hit, a problem that has plagued them often this season.  The Tigers only run came on a solo homer by Austin Jackson in the 7th inning.

The Tigers maintain a two game lead over second-place Cleveland, as the Indians were no-hit by the Angels today.  Chicago draws closer to the top with their win over the Tigers, the White Sox are just 3 and a half games behind Detroit. 

Detroit returns home to open a 4-game series with the Los Angeles Angels tomorrow afternoon at Comerica Park.  Brad Penny will be the Tiger starting pitcher, while Joel Pinero gets the start for the Angels.  1:05 pm is the scheduled first pitch.
