"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.
CLE: RHP Jake Westbrook (5-3, 5.04 ERA)
Westbrook has struggled all year in his attempts to string two strong starts
together. After a dominant performance against the White Sox on May 31, he
was beaten up for four runs on five hits over 6 2/3 innings against the A's
CWS: RHP Freddy Garcia (7-3, 4.56 ERA)
Garcia struggled early to find the strike zone in his last outing and pitched six innings while throwing 118 pitches. He gave up three earned runs on eight
hits while getting a no-decision. Garcia is 6-5 with a 3.04 ERA when facing
the Indians in his career.
Player to watch
Travis Hafner is batting .429 against Garcia in 28 career at-bats and has two doubles and three home runs.
