Gavin Floyd will pitch for the White Sox as they look to make it 10 straight wins against the visiting Seattle Mariners. Floyd has been very up-and-down in his past few starts and is ready to make a change.
Floyd has always been a slow starter, and from June 1 on he is a lights out pitcher. (Today is June 2nd) Since the 2010 season the Sox have only lost 3 games to the Mariners they have 21 wins against them.
The White Sox are by far the hottest team in baseball aiming for 10 straight wins, in first place over the Cleveland Indians by 1.5 games and the Detroit Tigers by 5 games.
With the Sox this hot, they have a surge of energy just continuing to propel the team forward on all cylinders. One thing that really pops out at me is that this team is fighting back after giving up the lead, last year it seemed like if the Sox were only 2 runs down that it was game over.
That is something that the Sox have to keep up. The pitching will be solid but if it’s not it’s a necessity for the team to continue to pump out runs like a factory.
