It's go time in the Indians chase for the second American League Wild Card, and tonight the Tribe faces off against White Sox ace Chris Sale. Sale has been a little more up and down this year than was expected, but still enters with a 3.55 ERA and an amazing 250 strikeouts on the year. The left-hander has been hit hard lately, owning a 0-2 record and a 5.01 ERA over his last four starts.

Cleveland turns to Cody Anderson, who has been excellent since returning from the disabled list. Anderson is 2-0 over those three post DL starts, allowing just four earned runs over 18 2/3 innings. On the year, Anderson is 4-3 with a 3.68 ERA.
