Been a little while since we've seen the White Sox. As we know, they are leading the AL Central, and are seven games ahead of the Tigers. They're 7-3 for their last 10 games.
Buehrle is 14-8 with a 2.99 ERA overall against the Tigers.
There hasn't been any news regarding Danny Worth or Johnny Damon, so I assume that's good and neither is hitting the DL. Damon would be useful today; he is hitting .409 lifetime against Buerhle.
Tigers lineup: Jackson 8, Damon dh, Frazier 7, Cabrera 3, Peralta 5, Boesch 9, Raburn 4, Laird 2, Worth 6
White Sox lineup: Pierre 7, Vizquel 5, Rios 8, Konerko 3, Quentin 9, Kotsay dh, Ramirez 6, Pierzynski 2, Beckham 4.
