3-unit Play Take Chicago White Sox/Cleveland Indians UNDER (7:05pm EST) The Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians both struggle against left-handed pitching, and today they are going to see two tough cookies on the mound. It doesn't get much more difficult than facing Chris Sale. He's one of the top arms in the game and he's still getting better at just 25-years of age. He enters today's game at 11-3 with a miniscule 2.11 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in 22 starts in 2014. If he got any kind of run support or help from his bullpen, Sale could easily be in the Cy Young discussion. Indians starter T.J. House hasn't fully established himself in the league yet, but the early returns are very encouraging. He's not an overpowering hurler, but House induces tons of groundballs and can get a strikeout when he needs it. He owns a 3.94 ERA in 15 games this season, but he's actually pitched even better than that based on his peripherals. Nobody expected House to earn a spot in the rotation this season, but it doesn't look like he's going to relinquish it for a long time. The only worry going under the total with this one is the bullpens, but I do expect both of these starters to go deep into the game today. As we mentioned, both clubs are horrid against southpaws so the pitch counts should be manageable until the 7th or 8th inning. I also wouldn't be surprised if we see a shutout by one of these guys. Play under the total.
