Al Central rivals the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox collide in a MLB tilt on Monday.
The Chicago White Sox never found their offense Sunday and a solid effort on the mound went for naught in a 3-1 loss to Detroit. Chicago starter James Shields was charged with all three runs on six hits and three BB to absorb the loss.

The White Sox totaled nine hits but the lone run came in the form of Matt Davidson’s 12th long ball. Dylan Covey gets his second straight start against the Indians on Monday night. Covey picked up a 3-2 victory versus Cleveland with both runs plated on ten hits through seven innings pitched.
The Cleveland Indians ended their series with visiting Minnesota with a complete 4-1 victory on Sunday. Cleveland starter Shane Bieber allowed the lone run on ten hits and a BB in 5.2 frames before three relievers pitched an inning apiece.
The Indians attack featured seven hits and four walks with Yan Gomes smacking a three run double while Tyler Naquin recorded an RBI single followed by Lonnie Chisenhall who was 2-3 and scored twice.
Cleveland gives Monday night’s start versus the White Sox to right hander Trevor Bauer. Bauer fell to the White Sox 3-2 last time out with all three runs given up over 7.2 frames where he struck out 12.
Under is 15-5-3 in Chicago last 23 road games and under is 22-8-3 in Chicago last 33 overall and under is 22-8-3 in Chicago last 33 on grass. Over is 22-4-1 in Cleveland last 27 home games and Cleveland are 22-6 in their last 28 Monday games. And under is 8-3 in Cleveland last 11 overall. Chicago are 3-11 in the last 14 meetings.
Covey has been the best arm for the White Sox but he had trouble keeping guys off base versus Cleveland with ten hits allowed. I’d do something on the Tribe in this rematch…
