The Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Globe Life Field. In the first game of this series, it was the Rangers that were able to secure the 3-2 victory. 

The White Sox come into this game with a 53-52 record overall and if they want to make the playoffs they can’t keep losing games like they did on Thursday night. The White Sox’s offense has dealt with injuries and they haven’t lived up to expectations. The Whtie Sox are averaging 4.37 runs per game which is 17th in the league. Jose Abreu has hit 14 home runs and driven in 55 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Rangers who sits wih a 47-58 record overall and they had lost three games in a row before coming away with a win on Thursday night.  The Rangers offense has been solid overall, but the pitching has been an issue. They are giving up 4.52 runs per game which is 22nd in the league.
