John Danks picked up the win his last time out and that improved his record to 8 - 6 with a 4.15 ERA. In the victory, Danks allowed 3 runs on 8 hits in 5.2 innings as he walked 4 and struck out 4. In his last 7 starts, Danks has gone 5 -1 with a no-decision. He has made people forget that he went 4 - 14 with a 4.75 ERA in 22 starts last season.

Trevor Bauer got the victory in his last outing and that took his record to 3 - 4 with a 4.23 ERA. In the win, Bauer surrendered 3 runs on 4 hits in 7 innings of work. He walked 2 and struck out 6. Bauer still needs to give the Indians more innings in his starts as the season goes forward in the 2 nd half. Last season, Bauer was just 1 - 2 with a 5.29 ERA in 4 starts.
In 2013, Bauer was lit up in his only start against the White Sox. He escaped with a no-decision despite allowing 5 runs and 6 hits (including 2 homers) in just 0.2 innings of work. Six of the White Sox have faced him before and they are collectively batting .800 against Bauer with 4 hits, a homer and 3 RBIs in 5 at-bats.
