Season series: White Sox lead 3-2
The White Sox took Game 2 of the series Tuesday 4-2. C Yasmany Grandal homered, and RHP Dylan Cease allowed 2 ER over 6 innings. The White Sox are now 7-3 over the last 10 games. Chicago is 10-8 against the AL Central and sits 5.5 games back in the division despite being 10 games under .500.
The Guardians have lost 6 of their last 8 games, and they managed 4 runs in a game just twice in that stretch. They are also just 2-5 in the last 7 home games against the White Sox. Cleveland is 12-18 over the last 30 games, but because it plays in arguably the weakest division in baseball, it sits 3.5 games out of 1st place.
