RHP Zach Plesac (0-1, 1.80 ERA) vs RHP Matt Foster (1-0, 0.00 ERA)

Game Preview

In a normal season, both the White Sox and the Indians would be vying for a AL Wild Card berth behind the Minnesota Twins in the AL Central standings. However, with the expanded playoff format, now both teams appear likely to reach the postseason in 2020. Both teams have been performing well offensively this season, although the White Sox appear to have more consistency and currently sit fifth in the AL in scoring with 4.77 runs per game while leading the circuit in batting average as a team with a .273 mark. Meanwhile, the Indians are dead last in the AL in the average department, as they're hitting for a paltry .192 as a team. The pitching matchup here will feature two righties, as Matt Foster will get the ball for Chicago and Zach Plesac will get the nod for Cleveland. This will be a bullpen day for the White Sox, however, so Foster is not expected to pitch deep into the game.
