Trying to put a Friday night, 8-2 loss behind them, the Tigers’ first game of a Saturday double header with the Chicago White Sox wasn’t quite what they were looking for, as they squandered a good start from Michael Fulmer. Tiger hitters left a lot of offense out on the field. With a lot of help from White Sox pitcher Tyler Danish, just up from the minors, six Tigers would get on base in the first 4 innings, but they would score none. Tiger hitters would load the bases in the 7th, but would again not score.
Following two singles and a bunt, Chicago White Sox, Yolmer Sanchez would ground into a double play in the 5th. However, Anderson would score, giving the Sox the 1-0 lead. Chicago would tack on two more runs in the 8th off of a triple, and a broken bat single. Tiger batters would stay quiet, and the Sox would hold on for the 3-0 win.
Michael Fulmer had a strong outing. In eight innings of work, he would give up 3 runs on 9 hits, with 4 strikeouts and only 1 walk. Tiger hitters would only record 4 hits and would not score, in spite of 9 walks issued by Sox pitchers.
