The Chicago White Sox desperately look to right the ship and end their current five-game losing streak as they begin a three-game set Monday with the Cleveland Indians.

The White Sox still hold onto a one-game lead on the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central despite their current skid. Both Chicago and Detroit have only ten games left to play.

Chris Sale (17-7, 2.82) takes the mound for the White Sox in the opener. Sale picked up the loss his last time out allowing three runs in six innings against the Kansas City Royals. He looks to rebound against Cleveland, a team he has not faced since May 8.

Zach McAllister (5-8, 4.31) gets the start for Cleveland. McAllister has lost his last four decisions dating back to Aug. 28 and has not won since Aug. 11. He has especially struggled in the month of September, going 0-3 with a 6.87 ERA.

The White Sox are 8-4 against Cleveland this season.
