The Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians meet Friday in MLB action at Progressive Field. The White Sox need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Indians look for a win after splitting their last 10 games.

The Chicago White Sox have scored 13 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The White Sox have lost six straight games when scoring three or less runs. Tim Anderson leads the White Sox with 151 hits and 58 RBI while Jose Abreu and Yoan Moncada have combined for 269 hits and 170 RBI. Dylan Cease gets the ball, and he is 12-7 with a 4.09 ERA and 212 strikeouts this season. Cease is 1-2 with a 7.27 ERA and 18 strikeouts in his career against the Indians.

The Cleveland Indians have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Indians have won seven straight games when scoring four or more runs. Amed Rosario leads the Indians with 144 hits and 51 RBI while Jose Ramirez and Franmil Reyes have combined for 236 hits and 176 RBI. Shane Bieber gets the ball, and he is 7-4 with a 3.28 ERA and 130 strikeouts this season. Bieber is 5-2 with a 2.66 ERA and 92 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.

The White Sox are 6-1 in their last 7 Friday games and 2-5 in their last 7 road games. The Indians are 8-2 in their last 10 during game 3 of a series and 1-5 in their last 6 home games. The under is 4-1 in White Sox last 5 overall. The over is 5-2 in Indians last 7 overall. The White Sox are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Cleveland.

The Chicago White Sox are the better team and should be favored, but they’ve been shaky these last couple of weeks and Cease hasn’t been any better. In his last 12.2 innings, Cease has allowed 12 hits and 10 earned runs. Bieber hasn’t pitched since June, but he’s been consistent all season long and has quietly been one of the better pitchers in the AL overall. Give me the Indians and the plus money at home.
