Chicago White Sox

The White Sox played the Royals over the weekend, taking a three-game sweep in that set. On Monday versus Cleveland, Chicago had just three team hits in a 3-0 loss. Jesse Scholtens put up the bulk of the pitching on 5.0 innings, one earned, two hits and two walks,
Dylan Cease will take the mound for the White Sox’ Tuesday start. Over his 10 starts this year Cease is 2-3 with a 4.78 ERA and 57 Ks in 52.2 innings. Cease is 38-29 with a 3.68 ERA in 100 career starts.

Cleveland Guardians

Over on the Cleveland side, they had trouble with the Mets over the weekend and fell in a three-game sweep. In Monday’s matchup the Guardians had just four team hits but still pulled off the victory. Hunter Gaddis lasted 6.0 innings with two hits and a walk.

It’ll be Logan Allen’s turn to start for Cleveland on Tuesday. Over five starts this year (the first five of his career), Allen is 1-1 with a 3.04 ERA and 29 Ks in 26.2 innings.

The Sox are 4-0 in their last four in game two of a series and 4-1 in their last five Tuesday games. Chicago is 3-12 in their last 15 road games.

Meanwhile, the Guardians are 4-10 in the last 14 in game two of a series and 1-9 in their last 10 Tuesday games. The under is 5-1 in Cleveland’s last six Tuesday games.


I’ll stay with the White Sox here. Cease had a bad start against KC back on May 8 (5.0 innings; seven earned), but in his last two starts he’s been better. In that pair Cease has a combined three earned on nine hits and three walks in 12.1 innings but went just 0-1. He’ll need some offensive backup in game two. On Monday Chicago had a rough outing at the plate, getting on base just five times in all. It’s going to take a big bounce-back effort with the bats but I think the Sox can pull it off.
