Each game continues to get worse, especially on Tuesday night, as the Chicago White Sox lost to the Oakland Athletics, 11-0, their second loss in what will be a three-game series that wraps up this afternoon.
The third game of this series begins at 2:35 p.m. CT with Andre Rienzo (3-0, 4.56 ERA) against Oakland’s Tommy Milone (1-3, 4.54 ERA).
Today’s game will either a run-fest since each team’s starter has an ERA over 4.50, or it will be a close one-run, low scoring game since it is get away day for the White Sox, and maybe they won’t be very patient at the plate.
(Like that would matter, the White Sox are coming off a night where they had four hits.)

The official White Sox site also says Jose Abreu is going to get consecutive days off from the starting lineup, stating in their article:
"“In order to give Abreu a bigger break, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said he plans on using Thursday’s off-day to give Abreu consecutive days off. I don’t know if we’re going to do it either [Wednesday] or [Friday].”"
I’d hope that day off is today in all honestly, and have Abreu for all three games against the Houston Astros this weekend.
The past two series have been disasters, and even though the White Sox are still just three games under the .500 mark, they are in danger of continuing to slide down a slippery slope if they keep the uninspired play up, which nobody wants to see.
