Chicago White Sox vs Cleveland Indians (By: Mulder)
RHP Shane Bieber will start on the mound for the Tribe. He is 2-1 with a 3.32 ERA. Pretty much pitching to it too: 9.97 K/9, 2.70 BB/9.
He faced the White Sox actually in his most recent outing and he allowed 3 runs. He pitched a bit better however with very solid stuff: 1 BB, 6 K.
Last season he was terrific against the White Sox as he pitched 12.2 scoreless innings against them, 0.00 ERA indeed with a 0.71 WHIP and a huge 12.1 K/9.
For the White Sox Reynaldo Lopez will start on the mound who is 2-4 with a 6.38 ERA. Stuff wise not that much better : 4.46 BB/9, 31.5 Gb% altough i like his 9.99 K/9.
So he pitched in Cleveland 5 days ago and allowed 3 runs. However, only 2 K and he was lucky a few balls did not land over the fence for a homer.
Besides, last season he allowed 11 (!) runs against Cleveland in just 7 innings of work.
White Sox are 0-4 in Lopezs last 4 starts vs. Indians.
Hence backing the Tribe.
