Cleveland Indians vs. Chicago White Sox

The Indians look to continue their hot play at home Saturday evening in game two of their series against the Chicago White Sox.

Danny Salazar will get the start for the Tribe, looking to pick up his eighth win of the season. Salazar has allowed just two runs over 13 2/3 innings so far in June and enters with a 2.19 ERA on the season. The right-hander has struggled at times to go deep in games due to high pitch counts and walks, so hopefully we see an effective and efficient Salazar Saturday night.

The White Sox turn to veteran James Shields, who they acquired in a trade with the San Diego Padres. Shields has struggled much of the year and has allowed 23 earned runs over his last 9 2/3 innings.
