White Sox Vs. Rangers Preview: Chicago Can Sweep Texas With Win On Sunday

The Chicago White Sox already know that they ware going to be leaving the Lone Star State with a crucial series victory over the Texas Rangers. But with a win on Sunday, that series victory could become a sweep, and could extend their 2.5 game lead on the Detroit Tigers in the A.L. Central standings.

The White Sox will be sending Gavin Floyd to the hill on Sunday, and though the White Sox starter has been the subject of trade rumors, it appears as if he's going to be staying in Chicago. In five career starts in Texas, Floyd has given up 15 earned runs in 28.1 innings, which amounts to a 4.76 ERA. The good news for the White Sox is that Floyd has been stellar of late, allowing only six earned runs total over his last five starts. In three of those starts, he allowed zero earned runs.

The Rangers will send out part-time starter Scott Feldman, who has found himself back in Texas' rotation for the time being. In his most recent start, on July 23 vs. the Boston Red Sox, Feldman allowed only a single run over seven innings while striking out five. On the season, he has a 5.37 ERA.

Game date/time: Sunday, July 29, 6:05 p.m. CT

Location: Rangers Ballpark In Arlington, Arlington, Tex.

TV: CSN
