White Sox Vs. Dodgers Preview: Philip Humber Tries Again To Turn Tide

The Chicago White Sox dropped game one of their weekend series against the Los Angeles Dodgers late on Friday night, but they hope to draw even in another evening affair on Saturday. The pressure is squarely on Philip Humber, who has been quite disappointing since pitching a perfect game on April 21 against the Seattle Mariners. In two starts during the month of June, Humber has posted an 8.71 ERA and 1.84 WHIP over 10.1 innings and he may be fighting to keep his starting job at this point. The Dodgers will counter with Chad Billingsley (4-4, 3.57 ERA), who has given up just two runs over his last two starts combined (14.0 innings).

Game Date & Time: Saturday, June 16, 9:10 p.m. CT

Location: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, Calif.

TV: MLB Network
