Start Time: August 23 2019, 8:10 PM
The Chicago White Sox claimed the opener of this series 6-1 Thursday night, but the visiting Texas Rangers look primed to bounce back with a win here Friday night.
Texas will have a massive edge on the mound with Lance Lynn (14-8, 3.60 ERA) opposing Dylan Cease (2-6, 5.93 ERA). While Lynn has posted a 2.65 ERA over his last three turns, Cease has gone 1-6 with an ugly 6.00 ERA over his past seven starts.
“He’s been leaving pitches out over the plate a little bit more consistently,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said about Cease. “And this is the big leagues. Most of the guys are going to be able to consistently get the barrel to the baseball. It doesn’t matter how hard you throw.” Hard to argue with that, considering that Cease has served up 10 homers over 44 innings of work on the season.
Rangers are 6-2 in Lynns last 8 starts vs. a team with a losing record and 7-0 in Lynn’s last 7 road starts.
