Fans will likely be treated to a pitcher's duel on Friday as the Chicago White Sox visit the Los Angeles Dodgers to begin a weekend series. Current AL ERA leader Chris Sale is taking the mound for Chicago while 2011 NL Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw goes for L.A., so we're talking about two of the hottest young pitchers in all of baseball.
The White Sox have had mixed results of late, going 4-7 over their past 11 games since having a nine-game winning streak snapped. They've lost three consecutive series, but they're still on top of the AL Central thanks to a similarly struggling Cleveland Indians squad.
