Battle for the AL Central: Detroit EditionIt's August 31. Did you really imagine that the Chicago White Sox would be sitting atop the American League Central? Did you imagine that they would be hold a three-game lead over the heavily-favored Detroit Tigers?
No, I didn't.
Tonight, the two teams play the first game of three in Comerica Park. The worst case scenario for Sox fans would be a sweep. Even if that comes to fruition, the two teams will be tied. The pitching match ups are as follows:
Jake Peavy (9-9, 3.09 ERA) vs. Doug Fister (7-8, 3.67 ERA)
Francisco Liriano (2-0, 4.26 ERA) vs. Max Scherzer (14-6, 4.13)
