Tigers In Chicago To Start Three Games Series With White Sox

Last time the Tigers and White Sox met, Detroit dismantled Chicago in a three game set at Comerica Park. Detroit outscored the Sox 21-3 in the three games, which included two shutouts. The Tigers hope to find some of that magic again tonight as they start a three game series in Chicago.

Andy Oliver will make his second start in the place of injured Phil Coke. Brandon Inge is also out tonight as he has been placed on the DL with mono. Omir Santos takes his spot on the roster, while Danny Worth takes over at third base and Ryan Raburn takes over second base.

Here's the Tigers lineup for tonight:

1. Austin Jackson, CF
2. Casper Wells, RF
3. Brennan Boesch, LF
4. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
5. Victor Martinez, DH
6. Jhonny Peralta, SS
7. Ryan Raburn, 2B
8. Alex Avila, C
9. Danny Worth 3B
