Moncada went 2-for-13 with six strikeouts over his previous four contests before going 3-for-4 with his second multi-homer performance of the season. Jose Lindor registered both of Cleveland’s hits and drove in both runs with his 13th career leadoff homer and a sacrifice fly in the third inning. Jose Ramirez was hitless in four at-bats and is 0-for-10 over his last three games for the Indians, who have lost six of their last nine contests.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Indians RH Carlos Carrasco (3-3, 4.91 ERA) vs. White Sox LH Manny Banuelos (2-2, 6.67)

Carrasco defeated the White Sox in his last outing as he allowed two hits over five scoreless innings in a rain-shortened game. The 32-year-old is just 9-10 with a 3.85 ERA in 26 career appearances (24 starts) against Chicago. Carrasco has dominated Moncada (0-for-12, 10 strikeouts) and has mostly kept Abreu (9-for-45, two homers) in check.

Banuelos has served up five homers in seven innings while losing his last two starts, giving up 14 runs, 18 hits and five walks. The 28-year-old, who was matched up against Carrasco in the rain-shortened contest on Thursday, gave up five runs and eight hits – including two homers by Jordan Luplow – in 4 1/3 frames. Banuelos is 2-1 with a 6.62 ERA and 1.70 WHIP in five home appearances (two starts) this season.
