Happy Friday, friends! We’re back for another edition of “What White Sox team will we get leading up to the postseason?” Yesterday’s wasn’t a great mix.
Tonight is going to see Dylan Cease face off against Taylor Hearn. Hearn has spent a lot of time in the bullpen, and has only made eight starts this season. His ERA is a solid 3.99 and has gone 90 1⁄3 innings, allowing 78 hits and walking 34 batters. Cease, meanwhile, was spotty in his last appearance against the Red Sox. The lack of command led to him lasting 2 2⁄3 innings, walking five and giving up four hits, so he’s definitely going to be trying to bounce back tonight.
Three errors in yesterday’s finale vs. the Angels is something the defense is going to need to fix quickly, especially if they’re shaping up to be facing the Astros in the first round of the postseason. Even 11 games up in the division, it’s not time to get lazy.
Here’s how everyone is lining up tonight:
