The Chicago White Sox enter Sunday’s game with a three-game losing streak, as they are 2-3 on the season. The Kansas City Royals have won the first two games of this series by a combined three runs, including a 4-3 win on Saturday.

Adam Dunn and Tyler Flowers return to the lineup today in their normal starting roles at designated hitter and catcher.

This game should be a very good pitching matchup with both teams putting their aces to the mound, with the White Sox sending Chris Sale, and the Royals bringing out James Shields for a chance at the sweep.

My guess with this game is it will be another close game, as these are two of the better pitchers in the American League facing off against each other in this Sunday finale.

Here are the lineups for Sunday, April 6:

Chicago White Sox (2-3)
1. Adam Eaton (CF)
2. Marcus Semien (2B)

4. Adam Dunn (DH)
5. Dayan Viciedo (LF)
6. Conor Gillaspie (3B)
7. Avisail Garcia (RF)

9. Tyler Flowers (C)

Starting Pitcher: Chris Sale (1-0, 3.68)
