After an entertaining start to the series Monday, the Indians and White Sox are set to meet once again in the second game of a three-game series Tuesday.
The Indians lost in heartbreaking fashion Monday after a throw from first to second deflected off a runner, causing a game winning run to score in the bottom of the ninth. This loss snapped a six-game winning streak against the White Sox for the Indians.
Last year’s American League Cy Young Award winner takes the bump for the Indians in right hander Shane Bieber. He has amassed 523 strikeouts for his major league career thus far and has a record of 34-15 in Cleveland. He has made two starts this season, allowing five earned runs in 12.1 innings of work. He has walked seven batters in those two appearances while striking out 24.
The Indians have done a much better job of approaching at-bats this season compared to last, and it has shown in the numbers. While it is a small sample size in ten games, the Indians are averaging 4.6 runs per game, which ranks 11th in the MLB. They had walked 33 times entering Monday and had a team slugging percentage of .440.
The Indians are second in the league in runs allowed and once again have an elite pitching staff. Cleveland has a team ERA of 2.75 and have great arms in the bullpen as well with Emmanue Clase and James Karinchak.
Hitting wise, Franmil Reyes has paced the Indians. He has a .333 batting average with four homers and seven RBI’s.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox got back to .500 Monday thanks to a gutsy performance on the hill from Dallas Keuchel and another home run from outfielder Adam Eaton. Eaton has now homered in back-to-back games. After allowing an Eddie Rosario home run, Keuchel retired 12 straight batters.
Codi Heuer was excellent out of the bullpen for Chicago. He struck out a career high four batters over 2 1/3 innings after taking Keuchel’s place.
Lucas Giolito gets the call Tuesday for Chicago against Bieber in a battle of aces. Giolito is 2-2 with a 2.62 ERA in his career against Cleveland. He has been as powerful on the mound as usual, striking out 18 in 10.2 innings pitched. Gioloto struck out 10 and 5.1 innings in his last start.
The White Sox offense has been as good as advertised. They enter Tuesday’s game averaging over 5.5 runs a game and are 11th in the majors in average as a team. Breakout infielder Yermin Mercedes has led the way. He is hitting above .500 to start the season and has two home runs and seven RBI’s to his credit.

This is going to be a very fun matchup that will feature great pitching and a lot of strikeouts. Both offenses have been solid to this point, but don’t expect a ton of scoring in this game. That being said, the Indians have the better ace on the hill and will bounce back Tuesday.
