The Indians and White Sox begin a 3 game weekday series on Tuesday night.
The AL Central rivals have different agendas on their minds as the Indians look to maintain their lead in the AL Central while the Sox try to play the spoiler role.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox were once right where the Indians were.
At the beginning of this season it was Chicago who took off and held a division lead of 5.0 games. However, the script as been flipped by a lot, and now Chicago is simply trying to play the spoiler role down the stretch of the season.
The White Sox have gone 3-3 in their 9 game road trip and come in off a loss to Miami on Sunday.
Chicago sends out Jose Quintana here, who has been very impressive against the Indians in his career.
Quintana has posted a 2.68 ERA in 16 career outings against Cleveland and a 1.17 mark at Progressive Field.
The Indians had a little bump in their plans on Monday afternoon as they fell in a makeup game to the Red Sox 3-2.
Luckily for them, the Royals helped the cause and took down the Tigers, allowing Cleveland to hold their 5.0 game lead in the AL Central.
Cleveland’s offense was held down, which has been a rare feat for opposing pitchers as of late.
The Tribe comes into this one winners of 6 straight against the White sox, allowing just 12 runs in those 6 wins.
Corey Kluber gets the ball here, looking to continue his dominant ways.
Kluber has gone 4-0 with an ERA of 1.67 over his last 6 starts. However, he did allow a pair of homeruns last time out against the Angels, but was staked to an early lead that allowed him to settle in.
Kluber has gone 5-4 with a 3.47 ERA in his career against Chicago.
