The Chicago White Sox are going to have to play a doubleheader on Tuesday.
The Chicago White Sox are in Cleveland for a three-game series against the Cleveland Indians.
They are sitting at 1-2 after a tough opening weekend against a very good Minnesota Twins team. The Twins are the best team they will face this season so it is important to keep their heads up because they have the chance to be an awesome team themselves. Well, game one of this series was canceled due to weather in the Cleveland area.
They are going to play a doubleheader later today as a result of the canceled Monday game. The first one is going to begin at 2:30. The second one is going to begin at some point after the conclusion of the second one. There is no official time set for it because you never know how the first game is going to go.
Doubleheaders feel like they are more of a challenge this season. Living in the middle of a health crisis, it seems like being on the field more and around other people is less than ideal. Well, that is how the MLB ruled it should be done so it will be done that way. It is very important for the White Sox to at least take one of these games but it would be amazing if they are able to take two. The Cleveland Indians seem like they will be a pretty good team but they have a lot of unknown.
It will be Dylan Cease on the mound for the White Sox in the first game. He was supposed to make his season debut last night but he will be the guy early today. He had a good Summer Camp so he is looking to take his awesome talents into the regular season. His stuff can be nasty so as long as he can control it, the White Sox will be in good shape.
The second game will be Carlos Rodon making his season debut. It is also going to be his first real game since going down with Tommy John surgery in the middle of the 2019 season. It is going to be really interesting to see how he handles his first start in a long time against a team that should be able to score some runs this year.
Hopefully, the weather and COVID-19 allow the White Sox and Indians to get this doubleheader completed. It is early in the season but with the way that the Twins series went it feels like this is already a really big series.
