Blasting out of the gate with a monster first inning in which they scored six runs, capped by Nick Castellanos’ three-run homer.
That run support helped Max Scherzer cruise for seven innings of one run ball. 007 struck out six and allowed six hits plus one walk on 99 pitches.
The White Sox only real run was on a sacrifice fly that Detroit answered with a run of their own that same inning. Blaine Hardy pitched the 8th inning, setting up an Al-Al ninth.
Of course, they hit a solo homer before Al promptly struck out the final two hitters. 7-2 was the final score.
