Sale Looks To Extend Perfect Road Record

Chris Sale may have registered his first loss of the season in his last outing, but the lefty is still perfect on the road this season. Sale is 5-0 with a 1.41 ERA in five road starts this season while pitching a complete game twice. The Chicago White Sox will hope Sale can remain perfect on the road when they finish off their weekend series with the Kansas City Royals Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The White Sox are just 4-13 in their past 17 outings.
  • The OVER is 5-0 in the Royals’ past five games.
  • Eric Hosmer is 6-for 20 with seven RBIs against the White Sox this season.

The Royals will send veteran Edinson Volquez to the mound to counter Sale. Volquez has been especially effective at Kauffman Stadium this season with a 2.06 ERA in six home starts.

The White Sox are proving that no lead is safe as they continue to fumble late in games. The first game of the series saw the ChiSox lose despite holding a four-run lead, but they outdid themselves by allowing seven ninth inning runs Saturday to lose 8-7 to the Royals.
