Chicago — OK, we’ll say it. With tongue firmly implanted in cheek.
The Tigers have not won a baseball game since general manager Al Avila was fired.
(Of course, it’s awfully hard to justify cause and effect when the team was 25 games under .500 on the day he was relieved of his duties. Still, as a point of fact — winless minus Avila.)
The seventh straight loss was incurred Sunday, the White Sox completing the three-game sweep at Guaranteed Rate Field with a 5-3 win.
Three hitters did all the damage against Tigers’ starter Tyler Alexander.
