The Chicago White Sox are a team that is doing wonders in the league right now with three straight series wins. They will have to wait to begin what will be a historic series against the Cleveland Guardians.
Thanks to some cold and wet weather, the game between the White Sox and the Guardians on Monday night will be postponed. The pitching match-up was supposed to include Dallas Keuchel against Shane Bieber.
Keuchel has a 1-0 record while Bieber hasn’t won or lost a game yet this season. The game was to be Keuchel’s second start of the season while it would be Bieber’s third time on the mound. Keuchel was also going to go for his 101st win but will have to wait.
The Sox may appreciate the rest that they get having this day off after coming off of a six-game homestand in which they went 4-2. The White Sox are one of the top teams in the league this season so far, even though their offense hasn’t entirely kicked into gear yet.
The Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Guardians will have to wait to play until Tuesday.
The White Sox and their fans will hope that they get their bats going against the Guardians starting tomorrow. We will also have to wait for the historic first meeting between the newly named Guardians and the White Sox.
The Cleveland baseball team changed their name this year and so “technically” the White Sox have never played the Guardians before. We will have to wait until tomorrow to see these two teams get together for the “first time”. This Monday’s postponed game will be made up on July 12th as part of a doubleheader.
Hopefully, the White Sox and the Guardians will play tomorrow at 5:10 CDT in Cleveland. The pitching matchup will remain the same as Dallas Keuchel is set to face off against Shane Bieber in the new first game of the series.
So, while White Sox fans will have to wait a day to see their beloved team in action, the action that is promised them will be good. This should be a great series that, if the White Sox can win, will help cement early control of the AL Central in their favor and keep them ahead of the Guardians in the standings.
