- Chicago - May 17th
- Carlos Rodon (trying to bounce back) vs. Dallas Keuchel (a superstar hoping to reclaim his Cy Young form)
- Tonights game at U.S. Cellular Field featured two teams on opposite ends of the AL standings. It took 11 innings for the Astros to pull out their 16th win of the season. Both starters pitched well in bounce back games, though neither earned a decision. The White Sox bullpen struggle again, which has been the story of the season so far in their 15 loses. The White Sox have begun to trend in the wrong direction as the summer approaches, while the Astros are hoping this is a spark to ignite their season.
- This cold Chicago Tuesday in mid May was back and forth, and fun, despite a lack of fan support in the ballpark.
- Pregame: Sox hope to get back to winning ways, Astros looking for a win.
- Robin Ventura pre game, on if Rodon is in a sophomore slump?
“It happens to guys who have been around for a long time. It happens to guys in their first year. For him, he’s a good enough talent. He’s got everything that is there to be a good pitcher. I don’t worry about that."
- First Inning: 0-0
