The Chicago White Sox are looking to sweep the Kansas City Royals.
The Chicago White Sox are on a roll again. After dropping two in a row for the first time in two weeks on Thursday, they are back on track with their third win in a row. They won on Saturday night by a final score of 5-3. It wasn’t the prettiest game in the history of the team but they figured out a way to get it done. Lucas Giolito pitched well and the offense gave him five runs which were more than enough to collect the win.
Now, they look to win their fourth game in a row and complete the sweep of the Royals. It would be nice to see them add another win to their total and get that much closer to clinching the playoffs for the first time since 2008. After coming off of three straight wins against them, you would have to think that they come into game four with the idea of sweeping them out of their own ballpark.
We are going to see Dallas Keuchel take the mound for the White Sox. He is going to go against Royals pitcher Matt Harvey. Yes, that is the Matt Harvey that you might remember from those old New York Mets teams back in the day. No, he is not the elite pitcher that he once was back then. He is having a pretty brutal year so hopefully, the White Sox are able to take advantage.
This could be a chance for the White Sox to put an exclamation on the weekend. If they can win, they will improve their record to 26-15 and stay atop the American League Central Division. In order to do so, they need a big game from Keuchel and the offense to dominate Harvey and whoever comes after him. Without getting ahead of ourselves, this feels like an achievable goal.
