The Chicago White Sox (61-44) will take on Cleveland (51-50) and try to secure the series with a win this afternoon. After a wild one last night, the team is looking to carry its offensive performance into today, but maybe get its pitching a little more consistent. They currently hold an eight-game lead in the division, and can extend it to nine today with a win.
The Chicago White Sox put outfielder Billy Hamilton on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right oblique strain. Hamilton, 30, is batting . with two homers, 11 RBIs and eight steals in 57 games this season.
Myles Straw felt right at home when he joined the Indians on Saturday. Former Houston Astros teammate Michael Brantley gave him a good scouting report on his new team. Brantley should know after spending 10 years in Cleveland.
