The Detroit Tigers trail Chicago by two games in the AL Central, which makes this week's four-game series against the White Sox a crucial one. The Tigers are 6-0 against the White Sox since the start of the second half, though all of those wins came in Detroit. And there's been a big difference between the Tigers at home and the Tigers on the road -- they're just 30-38 away from Comerica Park.
