White Sox Starter James Shields Day-To-Day After Taking Liner Off Knee

White Sox Starter James Shields Day-To-Day After Taking Liner Off Knee

As of now, Ramirez leads the AL with 76 extra-base hits this season. Bauer improved his record to 15-8 after allowing two runs on three hits with a walk and nine strikeouts while Cody Allen pitched a flawless ninth for his 24th save of the season as the Indians (81-56) reduced the magic number for clinching the American League Central to 17. A streaking Trevor Bauer gets Monday's starting assignment from the Cleveland Indians when they visit the Chicago White Sox.

Jose Ramirez had three doubles and two home runs on Sunday, tying the Major League Baseball record for most extra-base hits in a single game all-time.

The Chicago White Sox have been struggling to string together wins the entire season. Both the bats and arms contributed with CWS starter Lucas Giolito allowing a run on three hits while striking out ten through seven innings of work to up his record to 2-1.

Since he was acquired by the White Sox a year ago, he has struggled mightily, entering his start on Monday with a 6.32 ERA in 38 starts. Miami's Giancarlo Stanton is the other to achieve the mark.

James Shields allowed four runs (all earned) in 5.0 IP against the Twins at Target Field last Tuesday, taking the loss, and dropping to 0-4 with a 6.75 ERA in his last 10 starts. It's a good reminder that this is a long season for everyone, and also that the Indians were the AL's representative in the World Series past year for a reason: They're really good at baseball. The under is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings in Chicago.
