Chicago White Sox vs. Cleveland Indians, first game of the series. Start a long series of four games. The White Sox at home won the last series and the record is hardly positive at home this season. The start of the season for the home team was not easy, and the defensive problems continue to get worse. The Indians have a similar record on the road. Problems to win and no close solution to improve the record on the road this season.
Chicago White Sox: We want to win another series.
The White Sox at home have a positive record with fourteen victories and only thirteen defeats. The last series at home won against the Royals 3-0. The most curious of that last series is that they won all the games by a single run (2-1, 4-3, and 8-7). The defense remains pessimistic at home this season. Before the Royals lost to the Blue Jays, they drew 1-1 in a mini-series against the Indians.
At home the White Sox are scoring an average of 4.11 runs per game, 2.63 walks, 8.70 hits, 1.07 home runs, 14.63 left on base. The defense at home is mediocre. At the beginning of the season they lost five consecutive games. The team is allowing 6.00 runs per game, 4.44 walks, 8.52 strike outs, 9.41 hits and 1.85 home runs.
Manny Banuelos is in his second year as a professional after 4 years in the minor leagues. This season with the White Sox the record is 2-4, 7.1 ERA, 35.0 pitched innings, 44 hits, 30 runs, 10 home runs, 36 strike outs and 1,886 WHIP. The last victory was against the Orioles 5-3 at home.
Cleveland Indians: We have the strength to play.
The Indians recently won a series against defending champions Boston Red Sox 2-1 on the road. But the record on the road this season is 13-13, 5-5 in the last ten games. The Indians have not been able to win series on the road this season. This is the fourth series against the White Sox this season. The three primers were draws, a series of four games 2-2 and the other mini series 1-1 and 1-1.
On the road the Indians are scoring an average of 4.08 runs per game, 3.50 walks, 7.46 hits, 1.23 home runs, 13.00 left on base. The defense allows up to 4.04 runs, 2.96 walks, 8.50 strike outs, 7.85 hits, 1.15 home runs and 13.35 left on base.
Carlos Carrasco will be available for the first game of the series. Veteran of 10 years in the league. All this decade playing for the Indians. 83-67 overall in wins and losses. The last four seasons have been the best for him. This season the record is 4-5, 4.60 ERA, 58.2 pitched innings, 64 hits, 31 runs, 13 home runs, 72 strike outs, 1,271 WHIP.
