Perfect Time For A Super Sale
Wednesday, June 3, 2015
White Sox vs. Rangers at Globe Life Park, Arlington, Tex. (7:05 p.m. CT, CSN). Probable Starters: LHP Chris Sale (4-2, 3.66) for the Sox, RHP Nick Martinez (4-1, 2.03) for Texas.
Sale is set to make his 10th start of the season and fifth on the road. He was in Cy Young form in his last outing on May 28 as he shut out the Orioles in Baltimore for 7.2 innings in a 3-2 Sox victory. He allowed just four hits and struck out a season-high 12 en route to claiming his fourth win of the season. Chris is 2-1 with a 1.71 ERA, .147 opponents average and 40 strikeouts over his last four starts, all quality outings, and is 2-0 lifetime at Globe Life Park.

Quote of the Day
GM Rick Hahn on the state of the Sox (via Scott Merkin, whitesox.com):
“We want to start seeing more of the consistency we’ve seen in terms of the upside of our performance. Some of the guys with the track record we expect them to eventually reach very likely will get going or will continue to get going over the next few weeks.
“That’s only going to help us in the long run. There certainly is plenty of time to put ourselves back in the position to win this thing, which was our goal from the start.”
