The rubber match of a three game set takes place Wednesday night inside U.S. Cellular Field as the Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox battle it out.

Winners of 4 of their last 6, Chicago pulled a come from behind 5-4 victory Tuesday night to stay within 5 games of 2nd place Texas in the AL Wild Card chase.

With Boston in rare non contention form, they’ll look to play a bit of a spoiler and knock around Chris Sale again this season.

Boston will counter the White Sox Chris Sale with RH Rick Porcello. The former Tiger will be coming off the DL to make his first start since July 29th.

Porcello is in the midst of his worst season of his career and will try to finish this last month plus strong and gain some momentum as he tries to solidify his future spot within the Red Sox rotation.

First pitch is scheduled for 8:10.

Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox have been a roller coaster ride of emotions this season when it comes to their offense.

The team averages 4.55 runs a game, but for starters that drops significantly on the road as they average 3.74 away from Fenway.

They also have shown many signs of inconsistencies as they go through droughts where they score 0 or 1 runs and times where they bust out for 4+ like Tuesday. However, their pitching could not hold to form this time around as 4 runs was not enough in a game 2 loss 5-4.

They’ll try to take the series with RH Rick Porcello coming off the DL.

Porcello is 5-11 this season with an ERA of 5.81. Clearly not good, the RH his last start on July 29th came against these White Sox.

They knocked him around for 6 runs on 10 hits in just 2 plus innings of work.

He’s lost 9 of his last 10 decisions and has allowed 20 home runs in 20 starts this year.

Chicago White Sox

The White Sox Chris Sale has made some monumental steps in his career. He’s made a name for himself striking out numerous opponents every game. However, being the leader that he is, he’s been known to not even mention any personal accomplishments, especially during a playoff race.

With the White Sox out just 5.0 games in a clustered AL Wild Card, Chris Sale will put all his personal accomplishments aside as he tries to draw the White Sox closer to the Rangers on Wednesday.

Sale has been in dominant form once again as he’s striking people out in ridiculously high numbers.

Sale has 29 strikeouts combined over his last 2 games and leads the AL with 222, which is 4 shy of his career high.

He’s won 3 straight starts while allowing just 5 runs in 21.1 innings of work.

However, he was hit hard against the Red Sox last time he faced them back on July 30th as he allowed 7 runs on 12 hits in just 5 innings of work. The loss that day ended a White Sox streak of 7 straight wins.

  • Red Sox are 6-13 in their last 19 games vs. a left-handed starter.
  • Red Sox are 8-18 in their last 26 Wednesday games..
