Finally, after seven games on the road against the Texas Rangers and the Detroit Tigers, the Chicago White Sox are back home at US Cellular Field to host six consecutive games.
The White Sox will host the Tampa Bay Rays for the next four days, with three games in the evening, and a game in the afternoon on Sunday.
They will follow that up with a two-game series with the Tigers on Tuesday and Wednesday.
In that recent road trip, the White Sox went 3-4, failing to win their first road series of the season, yet again. They did split the four-game series with the Tigers.
Today, the White Sox will send a recently improved Erik Johnson to the mound, who in his past two games has allowed a combined two runs in 11.2 innings, with 11 strikeouts to add with those numbers.
This season Johnson is 1-1 overall with a 5.32 ERA in 22 innings.
Tampa Bay will bring Chris Archer (2-1, 3.65 ERA) to take on the White Sox tonight at 7:10 p.m. CT.
This series will continue to show the White Sox how they are improving, but show them where they need to be. Looking forward to it.
