Indians Vs. White Sox Preview: Philip Humber Tries To Give Chicago 3 Straight Wins

Philip Humber's first start after his perfect game was decidedly less than perfect.

Chicago defeated Cleveland 7-2 on Tuesday night and can win its third game in a row if it gets the job done again Wednesday. Josh Tomlin will start for the Indians. The 27-year old righty comes into the game at 1-2 overall with a 5.48 ERA.
