Will the Guardians Stay on Top of White Sox ?

The Cleveland Guardians didn’t enter the year with high expectations, but they’ve gotten production in their lineup, along with some strong pitching in their rotation, and as a result, sit just two games back of the Twins in the AL Central. This series will be a big one for both sides, with the potential for Cleveland to further damage the White Sox postseason hopes. 

Guardians Projected Lineup:

LF Steven Kwan

SS Amed Rosario

3B Jose Ramirez

DH Franmil Reyes

2B Andres Gimenez

1B Owen Miller

RF Nolan Jones

C Austin Hedges

CF Myles Straw

Starting Pitcher: Cal Quantrill

Will the White Sox Start to Find Success at Home?

Unlike the Guardians, the White Sox haven’t been able to find much success as the home team this season, owning a record of just 19-25 at Guaranteed Rate Field. That’s a troublesome number and will need to be improved in the second half if the White Sox have hopes of holding true to their preseason playoff expectations. 

White Sox Projected Lineup:

SS Tim Anderson

3B Yoan Moncada

1B Andrew Vaughn

DH Jose Abreau

RF Gavin Sheets

2B Josh Harrison

LF Leury Garcia

C Seby Zavala

CF Adam Engel

Starting Pitcher: Lucas Giolito
