American League Preview from The Sports Network



Sunday, April 14th (All times Eastern)

Chicago White Sox (4-7) at Cleveland Indians (5-5), 1:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Chicago - Jake Peavy (1-1, 5.56) Cleveland - Brett Myers (0-1, 12.19)

(Sports Network) - Brett Myers takes the ball against a team with whom he played last season on Sunday when the Cleveland Indians host the Chicago White Sox in the finale of a three-game weekend series at Progressive Field.

Myers started last season with the Houston Astros, but was dealt to the White Sox on July 21 in a deal that sent three minor-leaguers to the Astros.

He made 35 relief outings with the White Sox through the end of the season and posted a 3.12 earned run average in 34 2/3 innings, then became a free agent and signed a two-year deal with Cleveland worth $15 million on Jan. 4.

Cleveland has lost both games Myers has pitched in 2013.

The Indians dropped a 10-8 verdict at Toronto after he allowed seven hits and seven runs in five innings, then lost a 14-1 game to the New York Yankees - Myers got a no-decision - after he was touched for seven runs and 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Carlos Carrasco took the loss in the latter game after starting and pitching 3 2/3 innings. Myers finished the game as a long reliever.

For the White Sox, veteran righty Jake Peavy tries to get back on the winning side after two contrasting starts.

He allowed a single earned run in six innings of a 5-2 defeat of the Kansas City Royals in his 2013 debut on April 3, then was touched for six runs on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings of an 8-7 loss at Washington on April 9.

Peavy, who won as many as 19 games with the San Diego Padres, was an 11-time winner with Chicago in 2012 - his best season with his new team since arriving via trade on July 31, 2009.

He is 4-3 in 10 career starts against the Indians.

On Saturday, Cleveland scored six runs in the fifth inning and defeated the White Sox, 9-4.

Mark Reynolds knocked a grand slam and had five RBI while Nick Swisher and Yan Gomes each hit two-run home runs for the Indians.

Cleveland starter Zach McAllister (1-1) fanned six and allowed three runs -- one earned -- on five hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Alejandro De Aza had a two-run homer and Paul Konerko drove in a run for the White Sox, who saw Chris Sale (1-1) struggle, surrendering eight runs in 4 1/3 innings.

The White Sox won 11 of 18 games between the teams last season. Cleveland last won the season series in 2007.
