Gamethread: White Sox at Tigers

Rodón looks for second quality start in a row

MLB: Chicago White Sox at New York Yankees

The White Sox look to snap a two-game losing streak tonight in Detroit.

Carlos Rodón will take the bump tonight for us. Rodón looks to carry off his last quality start in NYC, where he pitched six innings allowing just two runs. Hopefully Rodón will be able to corral his command tonight and give us a much-needed strong outing.

Jordan Zimmermann will throw for the Tigers. Zimmermann’s last win came against the White Sox on Sept. 5, 2018. His ERA for this year is at 4.29, but in his last eight starts dating back to last year he is at a 5.75.

Tim Anderson has been suspended for one game, along with Ricky Renteria. Here is what Anderson said to Brad Keller.

Brad Keller is suspended five games, but will only miss one start. Seems rather unfair, but that’s the MLB for you. I stand by Tim Anderson, as I am sure many of you do as well. I am rather upset with Anderson’s suspension as many of you could tell by my tweets today. Hoping the boys can win this game for Timmy.

We will be missing Tim Anderson and his hot bat in tonight’s game. Also James McCann gets the nod behind home plate in his first start returning to Comerica Park since coming over to the White Sox.

Our old friend Gordon Beckham makes a return for day two against the Tigers.
