White Sox Vs. Athletics Preview: Series Hangs In Balance On Sunday

The Chicago White Sox enter Sunday's game vs. the Oakland Athletics with a one-game lead on the Detroit Tigers in the A.L. Central, and they'll be looking to keep that pace (or extend it) with a win. On the mound for Chicago will be Chris Sale, who will be opposed by Bartolo Colon.

Sale, who has been given extra rest thanks to Chicago's extended rotation, has been just about unhittbale at home, posting a 1.71 ERA and an 0.85 WHIP in nine starts in Chicago this season. Colon, meanwhile, hasn't given up an earned run in any of his last three starts, a streak which has spanned 20.2 innings.

Game date/time: Sunday, August 12, 1:10 p.m. CT

Location: U.S. Cellular Field, Chicago, Ill.

TV: CSN
