Too good to be true.
White Sox 8, Tigers 7
There was plenty of scoring in this one. First, Alfredo Simon (14 GS, 85.2 IP, 3.57 ERA, 3.93 FIP) had a bit of a rough day, giving up three runs in the first eight batters and then allowing two more in the 5th. Fortunately, the Tigers clawed back. Kinsler hit a two run shot in the first and JD Martinez answered with his own in the 5th. In the 8th, Castellanos doubled and Romine took over to score on the Iglesias sac fly, sending it to extra innings where the White Sox promptly jumped on Joba Chamberlain for three runs. The Tigers struck back in the bottom of the 10th when Holaday delivered a two-run single, but they couldn’t get that final run. Anibal Sanchez (15 GS, 98 IP, 4.59 ERA, 4.16 FIP) is the Friday night starter.
The Moment: JD Martinez homers, again!
