Detroit, Michegan – The Tigers became the first team to sweep the Chicago White Sox in a series this year. It all began on Friday night when Justin Verlander picked up win number 12 of the season and propelled the Tigers past the White Sox 4-2. On Saturday the art of pitching struck again, this time from Rick Porcello when he went 8 innings and shut down the White Sox again with the final score of 7-1. On Sunday, the Tigers used the longball to defeat the White Sox again 6-4. Jacob Turner had a solid start completing a 6-1 homestand. Turner joined the Tigers from the Toledo Mud Hens. Also of note, the big man Miguel Cabrera clubbed his 300th home run of his major league career on Sunday afternoon. That was not the only notable event from the team. My sincere congratulations to Phil and Bobbie Coke on their newest addition to the Tigers family, a baby girl named Mickenzie Lou Ann.
