Last weeks series in Oakland saw the series struggle to produce runs for both the White Sox and Athletics. Now the tide changes and shifts to the city of Chicago. A week ago I posted the free play with both pitchers at the mound in Oakland, and I’ll do the same today.

Chris Sale and Jarrod Parker combined for a great outing in a 2-0 game June 2nd. Parker allowed two hits while Sale allowed four. An incredible night for both. Chances of both pitchers throwing that well again are doubtful considering their overall pitching record this year, and hitters wanting to avenge their woeful performance of a week ago. No individual can accept being shutdown an entire night as a competitor, which all athletes are. Imagine a whole team with that mindset embedded and fresh in their heads off of five days.
