Game Two – Lance Lynn vs Triston McKenzie
Lance Lynn has been magnificent for the Chicago White Sox in the second half.
The Chicago White Sox had a little bit of a scare with Lance Lynn earlier this season. He missed the first few months of the season due to injury and then he struggled when he came back. That was very scary as he was such a big part of the team in 2021.
Lynn signed an extension that made him so important to this team so the idea of him playing badly was a tough thing to think about. Now, however, he has been right back to where he was a year ago when he came in third place for the Cy Young Award in the American League.
Now, on Wednesday, he is going to make the most important regular-season start of his White Sox tenure. Game two of this series will see Lynn go up against Triston McKenzie of the Cleveland Guardians. It is going to be an insane display of talent on the mound for both teams.
McKenzie has had both good and bad starts this season against the White Sox. You can probably expect the best version of McKenzie in a game like this because he has truly developed into an outstanding Major League pitcher. The White Sox are going to have to deal with him a lot in the future.
These two have already faced each other once before so it is going to be fun seeing how they match up again. For Lynn, he really needs to pull through for his team here.
