The Chicago White Sox look for a victory after losing 10 of their last 11 games. The White Sox have allowed 23 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in eight of their last nine games. The Chicago White Sox haven’t won a game when allowing more than one run since July 8. Offensively, Jose Abreu leads the White Sox with 116 hits and 63 RBI while Melky Cabrera and Avisail Garcia have combined for 216 hits and 110 RBI. Miguel Gonzalez gets the ball, and he is 5-9 with a 4.60 ERA and 53 strikeouts this season. Gonzalez is 4-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Indians.
The Indians are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. American League Central, 7-3 in Klubers last 10 Saturday starts and 24-10 in Klubers last 34 starts. The White Sox are 1-4 in their last 5 Saturday games, 0-4 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 2-9 in Gonzalezs last 11 starts. The Indians are 4-0 in Klubers last 4 starts vs. White Sox and the under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings.
Kluber has allowed two or less runs in seven of his last eight games and the Indians are on quite a winning streak right now. The White Sox traded half their team away, the losses are piling up and they seem like a squad that's just waiting for the offseason to arrive. You just can't back the White Sox in their current form, as they're getting tagged left and right and have forgot how to win games. Give me the Indians to win another one.
