Tonight will be the third and final game of the three-game series between the Chicago White Sox and the Boston Red Sox at US Cellular Field.

The winner of this third game will also gain the series win, as the White Sox have won their two previous home series of the season. The White Sox are 8-7 overall this season.

The series finale will see the White Sox send LHP Chris Sale to the mound (3-0, 2.66 ERA) to face Boston’s Jon Lester (1-2, 2.57 ERA), as this game should, hopefully, keep the bullpens at ease Thursday with two talented starters squaring off.

But more on them later today.

What did you think about Wednesday’s 14 inning contest, where the White Sox lost, 4-2?

Yeah, I didn’t like it either.
