Sunday afternoon, Chris Sale (10 - 3, 2.12 ERA) gets the call for the Chicago White Sox as they face Chris Capuano (1 -3, 4.35 ERA) and the New York Yankees. Sale makes his 21st start as Capuano makes his 6th start and 34th appearance.
Chris Sale had an off day his last time out and it led to a loss. In that start, Sale surrendered 3 runs on 8 hits (including 2 homers) in 6 innings of work. He walked 2 and struck out 8. Sale has been a beast on the mound as of late and has surrendered 3 or more runs just twice in his last 10 outings. Keeping his opponents off the scoreboard is one reason why he is 4 - 2 in those 10 starts. Last season, Sale was 11 - 14 with a 3.07 ERA in 30 starts.
Sale was 1 - 0 with a 1.23 ERA in 2 starts against the Yankees in 2013. Earlier this season, he beat New York after holding them scoreless over 6 innings.
Chris Capuano escaped with a no-decision in his last outing after allowing 4 runs and 8 hits in 5.1 innings. He walked 2 batters and struck out 8 as he threw 103 pitches. Capuano is still seeking a win for the Yankees since coming over from the Boston Red Sox. In his 5 starts for New York, Capuano is 0 - 2 and has allowed 4 or more runs 3 times. Last season, Capuano was 4 - 7 with a 4.26 ERA in 20 starts and 4 relief appearances for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Capuano didn't face the White Sox in 2013 but he has seen them twice this season. While with the Red Sox, Capuano made 2 relief appearances against Chicago, earning his lone win in one of those appearances.
