The AL Central race is as close as expected.
The Indians and White Sox open up a crucial 3 game set in Cleveland as the teams sit 1st and 4th, but with just 2.5 games separating the two.
Chicago White Sox
Chicago once held a 6 game lead in the AL Central, but then went into free fall mode losing game after game.
After falling under the .500 mark, the White Sox have weathered the storm a bit and now sit at the .500 mark and just 2.5 games out.
Chicago took 2 of 3 against thew Tigers this past week to close the gap on them as well for 3rd place.
The White Sox will send out Jose Quintana, who does have success in his past against the Indians. The LH has gone 5-2 with an ERA of 2.71 in 15 games. He did receive a loss back on May 25th against the Indians in Chicago.
The Indians were asked to do a lot lately and it caught up with them in a big way.
Playing 20 games in 20 days, along with a west coast trip, capped off with a stop in Kansas City on the way back was not the most ideal of situations. The Indians were swept in Kansas City and now hold just a 0.5 game lead on the Royals, while the rest of the central is right behind them.
Cleveland’s offense went extremely cold in Kansas City, scoring just 7 runs. Prior to the road trip, the Indians offense was hitting the ball all over the place. They have averaged 5.41 runs per game at home this season.
The Indians will send out Trevor Bauer here, who has pitched well as of late. Bauer received a ND in Los Angeles as he pitched 8.0 strong innings, but was on the wrong side of some bad defense and bloop hits.
