Friday: Tigers at White Sox

Normally, left-handed hitters like Brennan Boesch and Johnny Damon wouldn’t be playing against White Sox lefty Mark Buehrle. With a hot, humid night in Chicago and the ball threatening to fly (though the flags atop the scoreboard are blowing in), however, Leyland wants to get his power guys in the lineup. Thus, Boesch and Damon play. Ramon Santiago is off.
