Indians Vs. White Sox: Cleveland Looks To Close Series In Chicago On Winning Note

The Cleveland Indians will try to avoid a sweep on Sunday afternoon as they finish their weekend series against the Chicago White Sox. After dropping the first two games of the series, the AL Central leading Indians have the White Sox in clear focus in their rearview mirror, now just one and a half games behind in the standings.

The Indians will have to bounce back from a 14-7 loss on Saturday that saw starter Derek Lowe get knocked around early, giving up ten hits and eight runs in less than three innings. Cleveland will give the ball to Ubaldo Jimenez on Sunday to try to slow down the Chicago offense. Jimenez has won three of his last four starts and enters the game with a 5-3 record and a 5.02 ERA.

Right-hander Gavin Floyd will get the start for the White Sox. Unlike Jimenez, Floyd has struggled of late, taking the loss in his last two starts leaving him with a 3-5 record and 4.66 ERA for the season.

The game will be at U.S. Cellular Field at 2:10 p.m. ET.
