The Chicago White Sox look to even their series with the Cleveland Indians on Saturday.
The Chicago White Sox would like to finish the season strong but they aren’t even playing .500 baseball. The White Sox have dropped three of four following a 12-1 loss at Progressive Field Friday. Ace Chris Sale was charged with seven runs with one being earned on eight hits in seven frames before Daniel Webb gave up four more. The bats logged five hits and walked five times with the lone run coming on Melky Cabrera’s solo jack. Rookie left hander Carlos Rodon gets the ball Saturday for his second straight start versus the Indians. Rodon defeated Cleveland 7-4 with a run allowed on five hits over seven frames.
The Cleveland Indians are still trying to keep their slim postseason hopes alive and have been doing just that. The Indians laid waste to the visiting White Sox Friday with strong outings on the mound and plate. Cody Anderson upped his record to 5-3 with the lone run scored through 6.2 innings while the bats pounded out 13 hits and walked five times. Carlos Gonzalez connected on a grand slam and Francisco Lindor homered while Chris Johnson, Michael Brantley and Mike Aviles drove in two runs each. Carlos Carrasco toes the rubber against the White Sox for the 5th time this season. Carrasco defeated Kansas City 8-3 last time out with a run plated on five hits while whiffing nine in six innings.
The over is 8-1-1 in Chicago’s last 10 Saturday games and is 8-2 in their last 10 road games while going 35-15-1 in their last 51 overall. The under is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings in Cleveland and is 24-6 in the last 30 meetings. Not sure if Carrasco reverses his fortunes against Chicago but I’ll just go with the over…
