Sunday: Tigers vs. White Sox

Marcus Thames gets a second straight start in LF as he tries to work out of his 0-for-7 slump. Other than that, it’s a pretty standard lineup against a pitcher who has had the Tigers’ number the last couple years. Vazquez lost his last start here on June 11 with five earned runs in six innings, but he’s 4-1 with a 3.28 ERA over his last five meetings with the Tigers.
