The Chicago White Sox head to Minute Maid Park to kick off a four-game series against the Houston Astros. Chicago heads into this series after recently sweeping the Detroit Tigers in a three-game set, but this time, they are going up against a much tougher opponent.
Houston won their last 4 straight games, including a three-game sweep against the Oakland Athletics over the weekend. The Astros are looking good in the playoff picture with the most wins in the American League, while the White Sox are still vying for AL Central supremacy.
Momentum is the strongest thing that the White Sox got going for them. Sure, beating the Detroit Tigers isn’t something to brag about, but it sure helps them boost a bit of the much-needed confidence for this series. It seems that they are starting to get things moving in the right direction for a team that has struggled throughout the season.
Meanwhile, the Astros are dangerous regardless of where they are playing. The White Sox dropped the three-game series against them back in June, even though they did manage to battle valiantly. Offense is a serious concern heading into the series rematch for Chicago.
The Chicago White Sox are sending one of their best to the mound in an effort to keep their streak going. Today, Johnny Cueto is making his 16th start of the season. He is carrying a 4-5 record with a 2.91 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 102 innings pitched while striking out 68.
On the other side, Jose Urquidy is making his 22nd start of the season. The 27-year-old righty is holding a 11-4 record with a 3.85 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP over 119 innings pitched while striking out 84. Jose Urquidy is rolling, and he is not alone as he’ll be entering with the best bullpen in the major leagues.
