Oddsmakers currently have the CHI WHITE SOX listed as 125 point favorites versus the CLEVELAND, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.5.

The Cleveland Indians salvaged the finale of their three-game series in Oakland over the weekend and look to build on that Monday night when they play the first of two road contests against the American League Central rival Chicago White Sox. The Indians dropped two one-run games against the Athletics before Roberto Perez delivered a tiebreaking three-run homer in the sixth inning of a 5-3 victory on Sunday.

Francisco Lindor had a pair of singles in the finale and is 11-for-31 during a season-high seven-game hitting streak for Cleveland and teammate Jordan Luplow is 5-for-12 in his last four games, including two homers against the White Sox on May 9. Shane Bieber, who is holding opponents to a .209 batting average, seeks his seventh quality start of the season when he takes the mound for the Indians on Monday and fellow right-hander Reynaldo Lopez gets the ball for Chicago in the opener. The White Sox won the final two games in Toronto to finish with a winning road trip (4-3) after shortstop AL Player of the Month for March/April Tim Anderson broke out of a slump with three hits while doubling his RBI total this month with three in a 5-1 victory Sunday. James McCann led the way this weekend with six hits in nine at-bats to push his batting average to .382 and the catcher homered in the four-game split at Cleveland last week for Chicago, which is 11-19 against the Indians at home since 2016.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Indians RH Shane Bieber (2-1, 3.32 ERA) vs. White Sox RH Reynaldo Lopez (2-4, 6.38)

Bieber has doubled his season total with three straight quality starts, but was not able to add a victory in any of them while permitting seven runs over 20 innings combined. The 23-year-old California native limited the White Sox to three runs and scattered eight hits last Wednesday as the Indians pulled out a 5-3 victory. Jose Abreu is 2-for-6 with a homer versus Bieber, who struck out 17 and did not give up a run in 12 2/3 innings of work against Chicago last year.

Lopez also pitched well last Wednesday at Cleveland, allowing three runs on nine hits across six innings without a decision, and owns quality starts in four of his last five outings. The 25-year-old Dominican Republic native boasts 47 strikeouts over 42 1/3 innings, but has served up nine homers and opponents are batting .306 against him. Leonys Martin is 6-for-10 and Jose Ramirez has homered against Lopez, who posted a 14.14 ERA versus the Indians in 2018.

WALK-OFFS

1. Chicago OF Leury Garcia (12 RBIs) left Sunday’s game with lower back stiffness after slamming into the wall when he made a catch.

2. Cleveland 1B-DH Carlos Santana snapped a seven-game RBI drought with his team-leading 20th on Sunday.

3. Abreu, who recorded his 900th career hit Sunday, has 25 RBIs in his last 21 games and belted a solo homer at Cleveland last week.

PREDICTION: Indians 5, White Sox 3
