The Chicago White Sox are coming of a rough weekend series that saw them lose three of four to Boston, but while they enter Tuesday just 11-11 overall, they're just a game behind the first place Cleveland Indians. They'll have an opportunity to shake up the standings beginning on Tuesday night when they open a three-game set at home against Cleveland.
