They'll need to improve their effort in order to beat the White Sox, though -- they haven't won a series since taking two of three from Detroit between Sept. 3 and Sept. 5.

The Indians are scheduled to start Zach McAllister (5-8, 4.31 ERA) on the mound, and the White Sox are expected to go with ace Chris Sale (17-7, 2.82).

Monday's Game Time: 8:10 p.m. ET
