The Detroit Tigers (17-9) will conclude their current 10-game road trip when they begin a 3-game series against the Chicago White Sox. Detroit is coming off a series split with the Kansas City Royals, after dropping the first two in the series and being outscored 12-2. In Friday’s match-up, the Tigers did not collect their first hit of the ball game until the 8th inning.

The Tigers earned themselves a split in the series after the bats finally woke up in Kansas City, behind a quality start by Anibal Sanchez, giving up three earned runs in 7 1/3 innings.
