Coming off a sweep of one of the American League's top teams, the Chicago White Sox look to continue their success as they host the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday. The White Sox have won nine of their last 12 games going into this weekend's series, the team's last one before the All Star break.

Jake Peavy is scheduled to start for Chicago after his bid to land in the All Star Game fell short. Despite having the sixth-best ERA (2.96) among all AL starters, the Rangers' Yu Darvish snagged the bid in his first season pitching in the U.S. after a decorated career in Japan. The White Sox did sweep the Rangers this week, though.

Game Date & Time: Friday, July 6, 7:10 p.m. CT

TV: CSN+
