The Cleveland Indians go on the road to oppose the Chicago White Sox in a Friday MLB matchup.

The Indians logged six hits and seven bases on balls with Yonder Alonso slugging his 19th homer while Francisco Lindor had two hits and three RBI’s followed by walk off single off the bat of Michael Brantley in the 9th.
Cleveland begins their road series with the White Sox with Shane Beiber on he hill. Beiber comes off of a 4-3 victory against the visiting Angels with two runs plated on seven hits and two BB in 5.2 innings.
The young Chicago White Sox followed a four game winning streak with a three game skid following a 7-3 loss to the visiting Yankees on Wednesday. Chicago starter Lucas Giolito was charged with all seven runs over five frames with four coming on a grand slam.
The White Sox totaled nine hits an a free pass with Tim Anderson smashing homer number 15 while Jose Abreu drove in a run and scored followed by Daniel Palka who had two hits and an RBI.
Left hander Carlos Rodon toes the rubber in the series opener versus the Indians. Rodon comes in off of a 2-1 win (ND) at Tampa Bay where he allowed an unearned run through six frames.
Cleveland are 10-3 in their last 13 road games and are 55-26 in their last 81 Friday games and are 7-3 in Bieber’s last 10 starts. Over is 15-5-1 in Chicago last 21 Friday games and over is 8-3 in Chicago last 11 on grass and over is 7-3 in Chicago last 10 home games. Cleveland are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Chicago are 35-17 in the last 52 meetings.
I don’t trust Beiber all that much and Rodon doesn’t beat Cleveland but if I were betting this it would be small on the White Sox…
