Game notes: It’s time to remove that Apple television login once again, as the Tigers’ video game versus the ChiSox will be just readily available online (or on WXYT-FM, if you’re willing to let your mind paint the images from Dan Dickerson’s voice) — Matt Shepard and Craig Monroe get the night off.

Old pal — he turned 36 a couple weeks back — Lance Lynn takes the mound for the 11th time this season, coming off probably his finest start of 2023: 6 innings with simply 4 hits permitted, 2 strolls, 2 runs and 6 strikeouts. The issue for Lynn this season has actually been his four-seam fastball. Once among the very best pitches in the video game — it brought a minus-32 run worth back in 2019 , minus-16 in 2021 and even minus-9 as just recently as in 2015. This year, nevertheless, it’s at plus-8; Lynn still has a few of the very best fastball spin in the majors (85th percentile, according to Statcast), however his speed is down to the 48th percentile. (Back in 2019, those percentiles were 91 and 53, by contrast.) Still, Lynn has actually controlled the Tigers in the past, with a 3.39 age and 70 strikeouts (and simply 17 strolls) in  63⅔ innings over 11 starts.
