MLB 2014 Game #9: Tigers vs. White Sox (Game 1)Chris Sale and I have a strange relationship. Every time I have tickets to see him pitch, the game gets rained out. I missed a potential pitching duel between Justin Verlander and Sale back in 2012, and last season I missed one of his starts against the Cleveland Indians.
Today, I am hoping the third time is a charm. Of course, there's a threat of thunderstorms rolling through the area. I dare you Mother Nature. I dare you to thwart me for a third time.
The Detroit Tigers (73-60, .549) and Chicago White Sox (60-74, .448) are playing a double header. We have tickets to the first game. The Tigers are sending Max Scherzer (15-4, 3.13 ERA) to the mound and the White Sox counter with Chris Sale (10-3, 2.03 ERA).
