After two unfortunate losses, the White Sox look to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Toronto Blue Jays.
Despite the White Sox batters hitting three home runs, they could not get the lead against the Jays.
But, every game begins with a 0-0 tie score and tonight is the perfect night for a Sox win. To get the win, Carson Fulmer has to be practically perfect.
He toes the mound against Aaron Sanchez who has does well against White Sox batters. The only current Sox who has had success against Sanchez is Welington Castillo, who faced him repeatedly when he played for the Baltimore Orioles in 2017. The young Sox batters have yet to experience Sanchez’s deceptive pitches.

On the flip side, the Jays have yet to experience what Fulmer has to offer. Of course, it is safe to say that the Jays have seen plenty of film on the 24-year-old right-handed pitcher. But, film and reality are very different things.
And, four of the Sox starting lineup has yet to hit their first home runs of the season. Leury Garcia, Adam Engel, Nicky Delmonico, and Tyler Saladino are due to hit one out of the park. And, after the big 14-5 loss, the Sox have to be hungry to get back at the tough Jays.
It would be nice to see the better pieces of the bullpen pitch today. I, for one, would love to see Joakim Soria add to his saves. I would also be nice to see him maintain his goose-egg – which is the more valuable number when compared to saves. With seven pitchers with ERAs over 6.00, the Sox need to get it together and tonight would be the perfect time to do it.
Fulmer should throw the first pitch at 7:07 PM. The game will be streamed on NBC Sports Chicago and it will also be aired on MLB.TV. You can listen to the game on WGN-AM 720. Better yet, tickets are still available and you could catch the game at Guaranteed Rate Field.
