CHICAGO Coming off a 3 7 road trip, the Chicago White Sox jerseys will play host to the Detroit Tigers jerseys in a straight doubleheader Friday to open a four game series.
The first game of the twin bill makes up for a rainout April 5 at Guaranteed Rate Field. The second game will follow 30 minutes after the conclusion of the opener.
The White Sox jerseys (20 25) will try to snap a three game skid after being swept by the Arizona Diamondbacks jerseys earlier this week in the desert. Chicago returns home for the first time since May 14.
The Tigers jerseys (22 24) also are a cold streak, having lost four of their past five games. Detroit is 10 14 on the road and 2 3 against Chicago this season.
Right hander cheap Mike Pelfrey jersey will start Game 1 of the doubleheader for the White Sox jerseys. For the second game, the team announced it would recall right hander cheap Tyler Danish jersey from Triple A Charlotte to make his first major league start.
The Tigers jerseys plan to recall right hander cheap Buck Farmer jersey from Triple A Toledo to start the opener on Friday. Left hander Matthew Boyd will start in Game 2.
Both teams are allowed to carry a 26th player for the doubleheader, which opens up roster spots for Danish and Farmer to join their respective clubs and make spot starts.
