Fresh off of a two-game sweep at the hands of the White Sox, the Brewers will head down to Chicago for two more against the south-side team. The Brewers hope to get back onto the winning side of things after falling to 3-5 on the season. The White Sox, meanwhile, will look to add to their six-game winning streak, standing at 7-4.
Milwaukee Brewers’ Projected Starters
The Brewers will send Adrian Houser to the mound in game one of this brief series. Houser currently is 0-0 with a 1.80 ERA this season. Houser has started just one game so far this season, a five-inning outing against the Pirates. Houser did face the White Sox on July 22 in the Brewers’ only exhibition game against another team during their summer camp.
Josh Lindblom will get the nod for the Brewers in the second game of the series. Lindbolm had his highly anticipated debut with the Brewers cut short in Pittsburgh. He had to exit the game with mysterious back spasms, but appears to be okay to pitch this week. He had allowed two runs in three and two-thirds innings while walking three and striking out five against the Pirates. Yasmani Grandal is the only White Sox player to ever face Lindbolm, and has one hit in two at-bats against him.
Chicago White Sox Projected Starters
The White Sox will counter Houser in game one with former Cy Young winner Dallas Keuchel. Keuchel is 2-0 so far this year, but has yet to have a quality start. He recently defeated the Royals while pitching five and a third innings of two run ball and allowing seven hits.
The White Sox will send former Brewer Gio Gonzalez to the hill in game two. In parts of two seasons with the Brewers, Gonzalez went 6-2 with a 3.20 ERA. Currently, Gonzalez has a 0-0 record and a whopping 7.96 ERA. In his only start with Chicago, Gonzalez tossed three and two-thirds scoreless innings while striking out six. Of particular note, Christian Yelich has a .316 career average against Gio Gonzalez in 19 at bats.
