Chicago White Sox
Chicago has nothing to fear at present since they are the only team that has the opportunity to clinch the division title. The White Sox won 85 and dropped 66 games this season with a neat balance in their offensive and defensive unit. However, they lost their last two-game series against the Tigers. On Tuesday, Chicago gave up five and scored just three in return. Reynaldo Lopez will be sent to the mound here as their starter in this game. Lopez has been struggling this month and the White Sox will need to turn their bats to score for support.

Cleveland Indians were holding the second position for most of their season. The Indians will need to win most of their remaining games if they want to qualify for the playoffs.
