Sharp Right-Handers Face Off as Tigers Host White Sox

Jack Flaherty and Erick Fedde have been unexpected, yet wonderful treats in any case frustrating groups. In the first of a three-game series, the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox will meet on the mound on Friday night.

Flaherty’s Noteworthy Season

Flaherty (4-4, 3.01 Period) has shown pinpoint control this season after he marked a one-year manage Detroit last December. In 13 appearances, he has walked just 11 batters while striking out 100 times. In each of his last eight appearances, Flaherty has given up three earned runs or fewer.

In his last start on Saturday, Flaherty tossed five scoreless innings at Houston. He threw just 73 pitches before exiting with an 11-0 lead. The Tigers pulled Flaherty as a precaution after he had exited his previous start on June 4 with back tightness. The 28-year-old Flaherty is 0-1 with a 3.72 ERA in two career starts against the White Sox.

Tigers’ Offensive Struggles

Detroit’s offense has turned frigid since Saturday’s 13-5 win. The Tigers have scored a total of three runs during their current four-game losing streak. Detroit was blanked by Atlanta, 7-0, on Wednesday.

“Right now, we’re not in a good place and when that piles up on you a little bit, even though you try to separate each individual at-bat, it’s tough,” manager A.J. Hinch said. “It’s time to go home. This was not a good trip.”

The Tigers went 1-5 on their road trip and begin a six-game homestand that includes three games against the Philadelphia Phillies.

“It’s rough, it was not a good road trip for us. But we can’t really think about that. We get an off day (Thursday) to relax and reset and just flush it. Then we will show up on Friday ready to get after it.”

Fedde’s Turnaround

Fedde (5-1, 3.09 ERA) has been the winning pitcher in a quarter of the White Sox’ 20 victories this season. He posted a 6-13 record and 5.81 ERA with the Washington Nationals last season. Improved control has sparked Fedde’s turnaround. He has improved his 1.6 strikeout-to-walk ratio last season to 3.6 this year.

Fedde has been sharp for Chicago in his last two starts. He limited the Seattle Mariners to one run in seven innings on June 10, then held the Arizona Diamondbacks to two runs in six innings on Saturday. Fedde threw a season-high-tying 108 pitches against Arizona and allowed eight hits, but the White Sox backed him with nine runs.

“My goal for the day was to try to get leadoff guys out and try to minimize the run game. I did a terrible job of that,”. “But I was able to minimize, for the most part. It was great the guys gave me a lead, so in the fifth inning when I had first and third I was like, just worry about getting outs at that point. The offense gave me some leeway and I was able to get out of some jams.”

Erick Fedde

Fedde, 31, has only faced the Tigers once in his career, giving up two runs in 4 2/3 innings on March 31.

White Sox’s Recent Performance

Chicago has lost its last two games, falling to Houston 5-3 on Thursday afternoon. The White Sox squandered a 3-1 lead as the Astros scored four runs in the seventh.

Key Matchup: Tigers vs. White Sox

As the series opens, all eyes will be on the pitching duel between Flaherty and Fedde. Both pitchers have been bright spots for their brigades and will be looking to outmatch each other. The Tigers aim to break their losing streak and find some offensive meter, while the White Sox hope to bounce back from their recent losses and capitalize on Fedde’s strong performance.
