The White Sox open a three-game series vs. the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.
A pair of division leaders are set to meet at U.S. Cellular Field on Tuesday night for the start of a three-game series when the Chicago White Sox host the Texas Rangers. At 50-30, the Rangers boast the best record in baseball and lead the league with 427 runs scored. The Rangers are 7-3 in their last 10 games, and will send out their newest toy, Roy Oswalt, to the mound on Tuesday. The Sox will start new All-Star Chris Sale.
Oswalt is making his third start of the season, and enters at 2-0 with a 4.26 ERA and 1.97 WHIP. With the 23-year old Sale going, the South Siders would figure to have an edge in pitching. Sale is 9-2 with a 2.27 ERA and 0.97 WHIP. He allowed two runs over seven innings while striking out five in his last start, a victory over the Minnesota Twins on June 27.
