Back and forth.
Tigers 5, White Sox 4
It was another one of those Anibal Sanchez (16 GS, 105 IP, 4.63 ERA, 4.39 FIP) starts where he gave up three home runs but everything else was fine. It’s a weird problem to have, but fortunately his hitters kept responding. The first two responses were Cabrera and Iglesias, and then it was Cespedes into triple’s alley to make it 3-2 Tigers. After the Sox tied it and retook the lead, it was Rajai Davis clearing the wall to tie it and JD Martinez crushing one put the Tigers ahead for good. We saw good Rondon and Soria pitched out of trouble to even up the series at one game a piece. Kyle Ryan (3 GS, 23.2 IP, 4.56 ERA, 5.39 FIP) will go on Saturday.
The Moment: JD Martinez crushes the game winning homer.
