The Cleveland Guardians find themselves below .500 for the first time since June 8 thanks to a 2-8 stretch and will look to get back on the winning side of things on Monday when they host the Chicago White Sox.
Chicago White Sox (-120, 9) vs. Cleveland Guardians
White Sox starter Lance Lynn has struggled since coming off the injured list. He’s made five starts this season and surrendered at least three runs in four of them. He’s logged a 5.33 ERA and allowed four home runs in 27 total innings.
Behind him, the White Sox have a bullpen that is 20th in the MLB in ERA and 23rd in walks per nine innings.
The Guardians will give the ball to Cal Quantrill, who has performed his best at home, where he’s posted a 3-0 record with a 3.24 ERA and 2.3 walks per nine innings in his eight starts. He’s also surrendered three earned runs or fewer in 28 of his last 31 appearances.
The White Sox are hitting .038 points lower against right-handed pitching than left-handed pitching. Though both teams are in the bottom five in home runs per game, the Guardians are striking out the fewest times per game of any lineup in baseball.
Dating back to last season, the Guardians are 8-3 in Quantrill’s past 11 starts. He should get the Guardians out of their funk on Monday.
