The White Sox are in prime position for a wildcard berth in the AL Central, while the Tigers are languishing at the bottom of the division.
The White Sox are 76-75 on the season and are coming off a surprise defeat against the Tigers. They have overcome a lot of ground to leapfrog the faltering Minnesota Twins. For a long time, there was a massive gap between the Twins in second place and the White Sox in third.
However, their situation have been reversed in recent weeks, with the White Sox now having that buffer. Their recent form hasn’t been great, though, as they have lost six of their last ten games and are only three games ahead of the Twins. As the race for the playoffs heats up, the White would want to gain some momentum and consistency.
The Tigers, meanwhile, have been rooted to the bottom of their division for most of the season. They have been in woeful form and have not had any momentum. They have shown occasional sparks of brilliance, though.
In their last game, they defied all odds to beat the White Sox in the first game of this series. If they continue the way, they could do the Twins a huge favor by knocking the White Sox off their perch. The final part of the regular season is turning out to be a spectacle to behold.
