So the next time ESPN wants to put the Tigers on national TV, they should politely decline. At least they scored a run as opposed to the 11-0 back on April 28th.
Rick Porcello pitched 3.1 strong innings, the problem was the White Sox scored all 5 runs in the first two it which he was kinda terrible. It also didn't help that the run support usually provided was no where to be found. Getting an early trip on the trip to Texas perhaps. Irregardless of how Porcello pitched, mustering up 5 singles is rarely going to win games. On the plus side two of those singles belonged to Magglio Ordonez. Yes were at the point where I'm happy Magglio goes 2 for 4.
So the White Sox avoided the sweep. Tigers still hold the division, and head to Texas and Cleveland before returning home to face Baltimore. The Sox go to Minnesota then host the Yankees and the Angels.
