The Chicago White Sox look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The White Sox have scored six runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The White Sox have won five straight games when scoring more than three runs. Avisail Garcia leads Chicago with 46 hits and 18 RBI while Jose Abreu and Alexei Ramirez have combined for 40 RBI. The Chicago White Sox have split their last six home games. John Danks takes the hill, and he’s 2-3 with a 4.66 ERA and 29 strikeouts this season. Danks is 5-12 with a 5.16 ERA and 98 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The Indians are 11-5 in their last 16 during game 4 of a series and 5-1 in Salazars last 6 starts. The White Sox are 3-8 in their last 11 during game 4 of a series and 4-1 in Danks' last 5 starts. The White Sox are 1-4 in Danks' last 5 starts vs. Indians.
Danks has been flat out awful in his career against the Indians. While the White Sox are playing well as of late, I like the value of Cleveland given Danks' history.
