john_danksThe Chicago White Sox look to get their record to at least .500, but they need to start a winning streak this Thursday when they take on the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park, at 1:08 PM ET.

The White Sox are 52-56 this season with a 25-32 record away from home; their starting pitcher for this game will be John Danks, who is 9-6 this season with a 4.40 ERA; he hasn’t lost since June 22.

“I don’t get caught up in any of that; I really don’t,” said Danks, who has spent his entire eight-year career with Chicago and rumors, say he will be playing for another team soon. “I have no control over that.

“It’s certainly a humbling game,” Danks added. “There was a day when I felt like if I didn’t get to certain plateaus, it would be a bad season, and now I’m excited to get back to where I think I was.”

Torii Hunter is batting .467 with 14 RBIs in his past 12 game at Comerica Park; he’s on fire, but is not only about his and the batting lineup this Thursday; pitcher Drew Smyly, who has a 6-9 record in the season with a 3.77 ERA needs to step up his game for this one.

“You’ve got to learn from bumps in the roads and take it with you in the future to prepare yourself better for the next group,” scheduled starter Drew Smyly told MLB’s official website. “You lose a game; it’s no big deal. We’ll get ’em tomorrow.”

The White Sox are +178 to win this game, and the Tigers are +100, in the MLB betting odds.
