The Chicago White Sox look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The White Sox have scored 25 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The White Sox have won six of their last eight when scoring more than three runs. Jose Abreu leads Chicago with 151 hits and 83 RBI while Melky Cabrera and Adam Eaton have combined for 106 RBI. The Chicago White Sox have split their last six home games. Chris Sale takes the hill, and he’s 12-7 with a 3.29 ERA and 239 strikeouts this season. Sale is 4-4 with a 3.86 ERA and 91 strikeouts in his career against the Indians.
The Indians are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 1 of a series and 3-7 in Bauers last 10 starts. The White Sox are 8-3 in their last 11 games as a favorite and 10-2 in Sales last 12 starts with 5 days of rest. The White Sox are 4-1 in Sales last 5 starts vs. Indians.
The White Sox are starting to play a little consistent over the last week and have Sale on the hill, who has been lights out for much of the season. I like the Sox to get the job done here.
