Six Pack of Stats: Tigers 8, White Sox 3

Chicago was severely outclassed on Tuesday, so Adam Engel’s MVP is a bit of a booby prize

Early Out: The Tigers mauled Lucas Giolito, leading to undeniable win expectancy, beginning in the second inning.


Adam Engel led the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night with a paltry .067 WPA, earning him the team MVP for the game. Led by Mikie Mahtook (.146 WPA), five Detroit Tigers had higher WPAs.


The White Sox are 1-7 (.125) when hosting the Tigers in 2018. Chicago has won six of 10 in Detroit this year.


Daniel Palka, who sat out on Tuesday after tying the opener in the ninth with a solo shot, has six ninth-inning home runs this season, the most in baseball.


James Shields has 17 quality starts in 2018, which is tied for fifth-best in the American League.


Yolmer Sánchez extended his career-high on-base streak to 22 games in yesterday’s White Sox win. He sat out Tuesday’s game.


With Victor Martinez’s single leading off the second inning, Chicago’s win expectancy fell to 46.3%, and it would not jump up better than 50% the rest of the game.
