Pre-Game Notes

  • Chris Sale is 12-8 this year, with a 3.31 ERA in 27 starts.
  • Five of those starts have been against the Twins, where he is 1-2 with a 6.30 ERA. Minnesota needs to demolish him one more time in 2015 to have the best chance of coming out of the weekend with a series win.
  • Cleveland has faced the Chicago ace three times this season. Nobody else has seen him more than twice.
  • The Twins are hitting .291/.326/.449 off of Sale in 2015.
  • In three starts versus the White Sox this year, Kyle Gibson is 2-0 with a 1.64 ERA. They're "batting" .169/.198/.247 against him.
