Detroit Tigers Lose To Chicago White Sox 6-4

The Tigers had a boatload of opportunities to score runs last night, but couldn’t cash in on many of them.  The Tigers also had a golden opportunity to gain some ground on first-place Cleveland (they lost big to Texas), but again could not make it happen. 

Despite a 3-run homer from Casper Wells, the Tigers could only put one more run on the board for the night, while the Chisox kept adding on.  The loss ends the Tigers’ 4-game win streak, and also brings the White Sox closer to the second-place Tigers in the AL Central Division (Tigers trail Cleveland by 4 1/2 games, Chicago is 7 back).

Justin Verlander will be the starting pitcher for Detroit against Chicago tonight at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago.  First pitch at 7:10.  The Tigers have been a streaky team in 2011, but now is not the time to have a prolonged losing streak.  They have to beat teams in their own division, and have to learn to win on the road.  With Verlander pitching tonight, we have a good chance to accomplish both.

The Tigers placed third baseman Brandon Inge on the 15-day disabled list due to mononucleosis.  They have added Omir Santos to the roster as a backup catcher.  Santos will be on a bus back to Toledo as soon as Magglio Ordonez comes off the DL, which will probably happen on Monday.
