Tigers Vs. White Sox: Detroit Looks For Consecutive Wins Over Chicago

The Detroit Tigers finished with some flair on Friday night thanks to Jhonny Peralta's game-winning, two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to complete a 5-4 comeback win.

The Tigers will try to carry over that winning feeling from Friday night and once again try to start building momentum in a season that has seen the American League Central favorites sputter to this point. A win today would mark the first consecutive wins by Detroit in over two weeks.

Detroit will start right-hander Max Scherzer on the mound against the White Sox. Scherzer has struggled to pitch deep into the game in his previous starts, entering Saturday's game with a 1-3 record and a 7.77 ERA.

The White Sox will counter with right-hander Gavin Floyd. Floyd enters the game with a 2-3 record in his five starts and 3.13 ERA. He will look to pick up where he left off in his last start in which he beat the Boston Red Sox, giving up three hits and one run in six and two thirds while striking out nine batters.

The game starts at Comerica Park at 4:05 p.m. ET and will be televised on Fox.
