This weekend’s series between the Chicago White Sox and the Cleveland Indians in Cleveland is their second series against each other this season, with the White Sox holding the series lead in 2014 at 3-1.

These two teams faced each other on April 10-13 with the White Sox winning by scores of 7-3, 9-6 and 4-3. The one game the White Sox lost was on April 12, by a 12-6 score.

Entering this series, the White Sox are fourth in the AL Central with a 14-15 record after 29 games, but they are playing better than a team with a sub-.500 record and better than one with a two-game losing streak.

White Sox are 14-15 overall

The Indians enter this game last in the AL Central at 11-17 overall.

Currently, the leading batter for the White Sox is Tyler Flowers, in terms of batting average, at .354, followed by Jose Abreu with a .270 average and a team-high 10 home runs.

With those two, plus Alexei Ramirez, who has 40 hits on the season, the White Sox are poised to have more offense against the Indians this weekend in their three-game series. The problem and question that remain is how will their pitching perform this weekend at Progressive Field?

Here are “5 Bold Predictions” for the weekend.
