Chicago was able to jump on Shane Bieber on Tuesday night for the Game 1 win and they will look to make it two straight over Cleveland here. Cleveland is starting Peyton Battenfield, who has allowed three earned runs or more in three of his last four appearances. Chicago is starting Mike Clevinger, who has allowed 15 earned runs over his last 22 innings of work. Neither starting pitcher has been very impressive, but I am going to take the White Sox at home.
