After Late Victory, White Sox Go For Early Series Win Against Texas

By the time Tuesday night's game against Texas was over in Arlington, it was already Wednesday morning in the Chicago area. The game on Tuesday had a nearly three hour long delay in the middle innings, as a result of severe weather with tornado warnings that moved into the vicinity of the ballpark. Though hail and rain drove many fans away from the ballpark, the White Sox bats managed to stay the night and take a rebound victory against the Rangers 8-6.

The teams will now meet again, just twelve hours later, to play the final game of the series. Gavin Floyd will take on C.J. Wilson in the early game. Floyd has been a strong starter for the Sox, and is 5-3 with a 3.88 ERA and 1.14 WHIP on the season. In his last start, against Cleveland, he gave up just one run on five hits over seven innings. In his career against Texas, Floyd is 1-2 with a 7.85 ERA and 1.96 WHIP. Josh Hamilton is 6-for-7 against Floyd, with two doubles.

Pitching for the Rangers will be C.J. Wilson. Wilson is 4-3 on the season with a 3.42 ERA and 1.27 WHIP. In his last start, an interleague matchup against the Phillies, he struck out ten batters in seven innings. Over his career against the White Sox, Wilson is 2-0 with a 3.44 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. Carlos Quentin is 2-for-5 with a home run against Wilson, and Alex Rios is 3-for-9 with a double.

The weather in Arlington is expected to be sunny and clear, with a game time temperature in the upper 80s. First pitch is at 1:05 P.M., CDT, and the game will be televised on CSN.
