Game Preview: Hector Noesi, White Sox look to sweep Indians


The Chicago White Sox are looking to gain the rare three-game sweep that has eluded them all season tonight as they host the Cleveland Indians for the third of their three-game set at US Cellular Field.

Chicago has won the first two games of this series by scores of 6-2 and 2-1.

Tonight, the White Sox send Hector Noesi to the mound, who is 0-3 with an ERA of 5.14. Noesi will oppose T.J. House of the Indians, who is 0-1 with a 6.43 ERA this season.

House has never faced the White Sox, as he’s pitched just seven innings this season, with one strikeout.

Noesi has pitched just 8.2 innings against the Indians in his career. He’s 0-0 against the Tribe with a 4.15 ERA and six strikeouts in games against Cleveland.

Players to watch out for against Noesi are Michael Bourn and Asdrubal Cabrera who each have a home run against him. Bourn also has four RBIs against the White Sox right-handed starter.

Chicago enters this game at .500 with a 27-27 mark, while Cleveland is 24-29 on the year.
