Guaranteed Rate Field will play host to a Sunday night MLB playoff clash between the Houston Astros and the Chicago White Sox. The Astros ranked seventh in the majors with a 3.76 team ERA and have limited the White Sox to five runs through the first two games of this best-of-five series. On Friday, Houston OF Kyle Tucker capped a five-run seventh inning with a two-run shot during a 9-4 home victory.

Twenty-four year old righty Luis Garcia (11-8 3.30 ERA) will take the mound for the Astros in this matchup. Through 155 plus innings, Garcia has struck out 167 batters and owns a solid 1.17 WHIP.

The Chicago White Sox won 53 of their 81 home games during the regular season and need to win on Sunday to stave off elimination. During Friday’s loss, Chicago OF Luis Robert collected three hits and scored a pair of runs. SP Lucas Giolito gave up four runs in four plus innings and did not factor in the decision for the White Sox.

Chicago manager Tony La Russa will turn to hard-throwing righty Dylan Cease (13-7 3.91 ERA) on Sunday. In 16 home starts this season, Cease was 6-2 with a 3.18 ERA and fanned 115 batters across 85 frames.
