Tigers Vs. White Sox: Starting Lineups For Saturday's Game

How this series plays out will have a major impact on the AL Central race between the Detroit Tigers and the Chicago White Sox. The Tigers struck the first blow with a 4-2 win on Friday, and a victory on Saturday would give them possession of the division lead.

Chicago's starting pitcher will be Chris Sale, who leads the team in both wins (11) and ERA (2.11). Detroit took their last matchup against Sale back in April, but will still likely need a good showing from starter Rick Porcello (6-5, 4.66 ERA) to carry this one.

The White Sox will play with the same lineup that started in Friday's matchup, while the Tigers will rotate in Ryan Raburn, Gerald Laird and Danny Worth for Quintin Barry, Alex Avila and Ramon Santiago.
