Open Thread: 6/28/05 White Sox @ Tigers


It's Mark Buehrle vs. Nate Robertson tonight in a battle of southpaws, though neither team is exactly chock full of lefty hitters. Buehrle has lasted into the seventh inning in every start since May 4 of last year, and he's all about the 102-pitch masterpieces this year. Robertson's 3.66 ERA has been helped by some timely errors (his RA is 4.92), but our southpaw is coming off the best start of his career last week at the Metrodome. The Sox are heavy favorites tonight, but stealing the first game of the series would help derail the South Side juggernaut, which simply can't be as invincible as it's looked so far this year.
