The White Sox host the Indians in Game 2 of a home series Tuesday, and we could be in for a pitcher's duel.

Lucas Giolito will toe the slab for the Sox, and he's coming off a solid performance. Giolito (1-0, 4.22 ERA) allowed three runs on four hits, striking out 10 in 5 1/3 innings in a win at Seattle his last time out. The Indians lineup is batting a combined .169 against Giolito.

The Indians hand the ball to Shane Beiber, who is the reigning Cy Yong winner. He's racked up 24 Ks in a dozen innings so far, but has given up five runs on eight hits and hasn't earned a win.

The Indians are 4-9 in their last 13 road games.
