Will Los Angeles Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw (14-2, 2.18 ERA) keep his hot streak alive? Or can Chicago White Sox’s Miguel Gonzalez (4-8, 5.15 ERA) get his team back on track at Guaranteed Rate Field?

Kershaw already won 14 games this season, only losing two. The lefty is currently on a 10 win streak, while his last defeat was back at their home on May 1 against the Giants. His last game was against the Kansas City Royals; he allowed six hits, two runs, and one homer, while striking out 13 batters in over nine innings.

On the other hand, Gonzalez was not able to contribute to his team in his past three games. In his last game against the Baltimore Orioles, he gave up nine hits, eight runs and one homer but only struck out three batters in over five frames.

White Sox’s Jose Abreu (.294/ .347/ .513, .860 OPS) has faced Kershaw way back in 2014, getting one hit and one run without getting struck out in over three at bats. Although, he has not been hitting much in his last games. In his last series against the Seattle Mariners, he got two hits and one run while getting struck out four times in over 12 at bats.

Meanwhile, Dodgers’ Chris Taylor (.291/ .369 /.492, .861 OPS) is on a roll, winning nine games straight without a loss. Taylor has faced the Sox’s righty way back in 2014 when Gonzalez was still a pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles, having a total of four hits and one run yet having one strikeout in over seven at bats.


Kershaw has been pitching wins for his team and Taylor keeps on hitting and running from base to base this season. The other team however is still trying to get back on their feet as Gonzalez keeps allowing hits and runs for the opposition, and Abreu is getting rusty this season.
