Tonight’s game was postponed due to rain and overall weather misery.
The game will be made up tomorrow as part of a straight doubleheader. The game will be played 30 minutes after the conclusion of the opener, Saturday’s regularly-scheduled game.
Tommy Barbee has your opener recap, Colleen Sullivan is on the nightcap. Chrystal O’Keefe has the Six Pack opener, nightcap TBD.
All the fun begins tomorrow, 1 p.m. game time. See ya then.
We are back tonight for Round 2 against the Oriole birds, who have lost a scorchingly painful 10 in a row. They’re looking to snap it tonight vs. Dallas Keuchel. Abreu is also back in the lineup after yesterday’s first baseline somersault.
Keuchel is coming off a no-decision against the Yankees. He had won his last two starts but gave up a pair of unearned runs in the first and was pulled in the fifth after allowing three baserunners in a row. He comes into tonight posting a 4.28 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 54.2 innings across his first 10 starts. Keuchel has had some shaky moments this season, but the offensive woes of the Orioles don’t look to improve with him on the mound.
Matt Harvey got the nod from the Orioles to start tonight’s game. Last time the White Sox saw Harvey was when he was on the Royals in 2020. He has been looking better than recent years, and his ERA is down to 6.31 from last season’s eye-watering 11.57 (woof). Harvey has dealt with a slew of injuries and negative attention from his time with the Mets, but he’s looking better than in recent years (not quite 2015 Matt Harvey but also not 2018 Matt Harvey).
Ángel Hernández is behind the plate tonight, so we’ll see how that goes.
Here’s how everyone’s lining it up tonight (should we play, looks like a couple rounds of #IsItRaining might happen first):
