Tarik Skubal joins some elite Detroit Tigers pitching company

Detroit Tigers pitcher Tarik Skubal has been wheeling and dealing this afternoon against the Chicago White Sox on the South Side, and he’s joined a pretty exclusive list.

He’s earned eight strikeouts so far this afternoon, and it’s the fourth consecutive game that he’s accomplished the feat. He’s now on an elite list of Tigers to have done so in the past:

-Justin Verlander
-Max Scherzer
-Jack Morris
-Hal Newhouser
-Mickey Lolich
-Denny McLain
-Les Cain
-Matthew Boyd
-Anibal Sanchez

Later in the game, it wouldn’t be long before Skubal would reach a career high of 10 strikeouts:
