0 1

Detroit defeated the White Sox, 4-2, on Friday at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, Illinois.

Former Vol Andre Lipcius made his Major League Baseball debut with the Tigers. He entered the tournament as a pinch hitter and stayed in the game, playing third base. He was 0-for-2.

The former Vol was a third-round pick by Detroit in the 2019 MLB draft (No. 83 overall).

Lipcius played third base and shortstop for Tennessee from 2017-19 and was selected to the SEC All-Freshman team in 2017.

He was the third Vol in the Tony Vitello era to start in Major League Baseball, joining Garrett Crochet (2020) and Ben Joyce (2023).

Vitello has been the head coach of the Vols since 2018.

Detroit plays next Saturday against Chicago. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 pm EDT at the Pledge Level Field.
