New York Yankees vs. Chicago White Sox (8:10 PM ET)
After taking the series opener with a 12-3 win, the Yankees will look to double up on the White Sox in Game 2 later tonight. The Yankees will give the ball to Luis Cessa, who is about to make just his third start of the season. He is 0-2 with a 6.57 ERA in three total game appearances. The White Sox will counter with seasoned veteran James Shields, who is searching for his second W of the year. Shields (1-1, 4.26 ERA) aims to rebound after getting swallowed whole by the Oakland A’s in his last start, allowing six earned runs on seven hits in just three innings of a 10-2 home loss on Jun. 24.
New York (-140) wins, 7-5.
Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Los Angeles Angels (10:07 PM ET)
Pitching God Clayton Kershaw (11-2, 2.47 ERA) meets the Angels tonight. Kershaw was Kershaw-esque the last time he was seen on the mound, tossing six scoreless innings and allowing just four hits and striking out eight in a 4-0 home victory over Colorado on Jun. 24. The Dodgers are unbeaten in Kershaw’s last 10 starts. JC Ramirez (7-5, 4.38 ERA) gets to toe the rubber, meanwhile, for the Angels. Ramirez is coming off a fantastic performance in a 6-3 win at Fenway Park, pitching for six innings and letting the Red Sox score just one run on four hits on Jun. 24. The over is 4-1 in Ramirez’s last five starts overall.
The Dodgers (-215) win, 5-2.
