The Indians and White Sox get set for Game 1 of a doubleheader on Monday.
The two teams are separated by just 2.5 games in the AL Central.
The Indians looked to be picking up some steam after winning 4 straight games, but failed over the weekend to capture a series win against the Red Sox.
After taking Friday night, the Indians were routed on Saturday and then couldn’t find any offense Sunday in a 5-2 rubber match loss.
The Indians will look to get the man in the middle going as Mike Napoli has hit a cold patch.
He’s struck out 11 times over a 19 straight at bat hitless streak. Napoli is the offensive punch this lineup needs as he provides that spark and ability to put up a crooked number with one swing of the bat.
Cleveland will send out Mike Clevinger here. The RH will be making his 2nd MLB start of the year.
He allowed 3 runs against the Reds in a ND in his MLB debut. He showed many signs of brilliance, but hit a speed bump and was on a short leash in his first start. With this being a doubleheader, he will likely be on a less strict pitch count.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox have hit a little rough patch themselves, resulting in the pack catching up to them in the AL Central.
Chicago has dropped 2 of 3 in each of their last 4 series’ and now hold just a 2.5 game lead on Cleveland and 3.5 on Kansas City.
Hitting with runners in scoring position over the weekend was the biggest struggle for the Sox. They went just 1 for 23, leaving many run scoring opportunities for not.
They’ll send out RH Mat Latos, who is is 5-1 on the season despite a 4.00 ERA. Latos was hit for his first loss of the season as he was knocked around by Houston last time out.
