Yankees vs White Sox
New York Yankees
The New York Yankees defeated the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday, 5-3. They won the game thanks to a two-run home run by Glayber Torres. This was Torres's fifth home run of the season, and it gave the team a 3-2 lead in the fourth inning.
The team is currently averaging around 4.49 runs per game, which is ninth in the league. The Yanks are also second in the league in home runs per game and fourth in on-base percentage.
After winning their last game, the Yanks will turn to Luis Gil to start the series. He made six starts last season and went 1-1 with a 3.07 ERA. The right-hander will make his first start of the 2022 season.
Gil is expected to only be able to throw around three or four innings in this game. The team's bullpen has been stellar, as they are currently holding opponents to a .202 batting average and a 1.15 WHIP. Aroldis Chapman has been the team's closer, and he has been able to record eight saves.
Chicago White Sox
In his last start, Lucas Giolito was able to throw seven innings and allow one run to help the Chicago White Sox defeat the Cleveland Guardians. This was a great bounce-back performance for the team, as it was defeated by 12 runs in the previous game.
The White Sox's starting pitching has been solid so far this season, as they are currently seventh in the league with a 3.21 ERA. Right-hander Dylan Cease will start for the team. He has been very effective in his last couple of starts, as he has been able to go on a two-game winning streak. Turning to the bullpen will also allow Cease to keep the team's momentum going.
The White Sox are currently averaging around 3.53 runs per game, which is 26th in the league. They are also 24th in the league in on-base percentage and 21st in batting average. The team has struggled at home this season, as they are hitting .216 during their 15 home games. Three players are currently tied for the team lead in home runs, including Andrew Vaughn and Tim Anderson.
