Indians, White Sox expect pitching show to continue

The Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians have featured some stellar pitching performances over the weekend, and another could be on the way Sunday. There could be two, in fact.

With a marquee pitching matchup -- Shane Bieber of Cleveland against Lucas Giolito of Chicago -- looming for the finale Sunday night, runs may again be scarce for both sides.

Chicago knows it must adapt and capitalize in tight situations amid the organization's quest to return to the postseason for the first time since 2008. The White Sox aren't shy about considering Cleveland a benchmark. Their American League Central rivals have topped 90 victories in four consecutive seasons.
