In the first game of a Tuesday MLB doubleheader, the Chicago White Sox will take on the Kansas City Royals from Kauffman Stadium. The White Sox (17-17) are starting to shake off their slow start to the season and are currently 2.5 games behind first place Minnesota. Last night, Luis Robert delivered a two-run blast in the tenth inning to lift Chicago to a 5-3 road victory.

Hard-throwing righty Dylan Cease (3-1 3.55 ERA) will take the ball for the White Sox in the first game of the doubleheader. Through 38 innings of work, Cease has fanned 58 batters and owns a solid 1.11 WHIP.

The Kansas City Royals have dropped 10 of their first 16 home games and are seven games off the pace in the AL Central Division race. On Monday, Kansas City rallied for three runs in the eighth inning on a two-run Whit Merrifield double and an RBI single from Andrew Benintendi. SP Brad Keller gave up three runs in seven innings and did not factor in the decision for the Royals (12-21).

Twenty-five year old righty Jonathan Heasley (0-1 2.70 ERA) will make his fifth career major league start for the Royals. Through 18 innings, Heasley has posted an ugly seven walk to seven strikeout ratio.
