Quick hits

Here’s what you need to know:

■ The Tigers can do no worse than split their four-game series with the White Sox after a 7-1 victory Friday and splitting a doubleheader Saturday (3-6 loss and 8-4 win).

■ Pitcher Kyle Ryan had an impressive major-league debut in the second game of the doubleheader for the Tigers, allowing zero runs and five hits in six innings. The last Tigers starter to pitch at least six shutout innings in his debut was Andy Van Hekken (2002), and only five Tigers pitchers have achieved the feat in their debut since 1914.

■ Rick Porcello, Sunday’s Tigers starter, is 5-3 with a 4.11 earned-run average in nine career starts at U.S. Cellular Field.

■ Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez enters the final day of August tied for the league lead in hits (40) and runs batted in (29) for the month.
