Tigers-White Sox Preview

(AP) -- While his stats weren't overly impressive, Justin Verlander earned the win in his return to the mound last weekend.

He'll try to build on that result Friday night as the Detroit Tigers open a four-game road series against the Chicago White Sox.

After missing one start due to soreness in his shoulder, Verlander (11-11, 4.82 ERA) returned to win 8-6 in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader at Minnesota. The right-hander yielded four runs, eight hits and three walks over 5 1-3 innings while striking out six.
