The White Sox will look to continue their hot start when they head into Tampa Bay for a weekend series.
Tampa Bay looks to bounce back as they fell in the final 2 games of their 3 game set with Cleveland.
Chicago White Sox
Chicago may have gotten the solid end of the scheduling, but that doesn’t take away from what they’ve done. The White Sox got 4 against the Athletics and 3 against the Twins here in the early going, as they took 6 of the 7 to get off to a hot start.
The White Sox have rattled off 4 straight wins and have allowed only 6 runs in their past 5 wins. Things don’t bode well for the Rays here as they’ll get LH Chris Sale, who was part of one of the recent victories.
Chris Sale comes in off a win where he allowed 3 runs against the Indians on Saturday afternoon. His offense picked him up as they put up a 5 spot in the 7th inning, allowing him to be eligible for the win after it looked like his day was for sure done. Sale is already 2-0 on the season with that win against the Indians, along with a win over Oakland to start the season.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays lack of offense has to be a major concern for them here early on. Tampa Bay is averaging just only 3.00 runs a game and was held to just 1 run in the final 2 games of the series against the Indians.
Two of the new guys, who the Rays picked up to provide a spark offensively, have struggled out of the gates. Logan Morrison (2-for-29) and Brad Miller (2-for-26) both continue to swing and miss a lot, really hurting this offense with RISP.
Tampa Bay will look to turn things around as they send Jake Odorizzi to the hill. He’s struck out 14 over the first pair of starts as he’s only produced 2 walks in the process.
Tampa Bay took 5 of 6 from the White Sox last year, including a 3 game sweep in Tampa.

Tampa Bay’s offense is in a tough spot here.
With them struggling, combined with Chris Sale toeing the rubber for the Sox, things could be bad here for the Rays.
