The Tigers are really struggling to get out of the gate. They have injury issues, the pitching has been bad, and no one is hitting. They have their ace on the hill tonight in Verlander, but he is far from a given against the White Sox. His career numbers vs the Sox are awful, as he has posted a 1-4 mark with an ERA of nearly 6. Verlander has surrendered 13 HR's to White Sox hitters over his career. Mark Buehrle has had success against the Tigers, as he is 12-8 with a 3.18 career ERA. Buehrle got shelled in the opener, and last year after giving up 5+ runs in a game, his next game stats show he was 3-1 2.48 ERA, and is also 5-1 the last six times with a 2.85 ERA. Like the Sox to keep the Tigers winless.
