Garcia goes against Tribe in finale

Garcia, White Sox go for series sweep

The White Sox will go for the series sweep against the division-rival Indians on Sunday after two games with dramatic finishes. They won the first game with a come-from-behind victory in the eighth and came back again on Saturday to win in 11 innings.

In his third start against Cleveland this season, Chicago starter Freddy Garcia will be looking for his first win. He has given up 12 earned runs in his two losses to the Tribe.

Indians starting pitcher Jake Westbrook has been tough against the Sox this season. He is 2-0 while giving up only two earned runs.

"I was looking at who we are going to face next, and it's Westbrook tomorrow," White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said. "There's no break in this division. You have to battle every day, and hopefully you pitch better than the other team."

After eight games of their current nine game homestand, the White Sox are 5-3. They were poised to sweep the Tigers in their previous series, but they lost the third game.
