The Chicago White Sox are coming off a series win against the Cleveland Indians, giving them an overall record of 6-8, as they are set to play a four-game series at home against the Kansas City Royals at U.S. Cellular Field.

To start the 2015 season the White Sox lost three straight to the Royals by a combined score of 21-7, being held to one run in two games, and five runs in their second loss of the season.

Even with the way the White Sox lost the first time around against the reigning American League champions, they have a better chance to win at least one of the upcoming four games with Chris Sale on the mound Thursday. The first time they squared off Sale was on the disabled list with a foot injury.
