Yankees Vs. White Sox Preview: Chicago Looks For Sweep On Wednesday

The New York Yankees may have the best record in the American League, but they're still looking to avoid a sweep against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night. The White Sox haven't swept the Yankees at home in 21 years, so this is a chance for the team to record a rare little feat against one of the game's marquee franchises.

On Wednesday, the White Sox have lefty Chris Sale taking the mound against New York's Phil Hughes, who has been maddeningly inconsistent. Sale has generally been spectacular this year, though, with a 14-4 record, 2.72 ERA, 137 strikeouts and 35 walks in 145 innings this season.

After getting swept by the Kansas City Royals over the weekend, the White Sox have rebounded nicely at home against the Yankees so far this week. For now, they hold a two-game lead over the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central standings.
