Garland, White Sox face Indians

Jul 17, 2007 - 4:27 PM Chi White Sox (41-50) at Cleveland (54-38) 7:05 pm EDT

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Jon Garland takes the mound Tuesday as the Chicago White Sox look to carry some momentum from a wild victory when they take on the Cleveland Indians in the middle contest of a three-game set at Jacobs Field.

The White Sox scored a season-high nine runs in the sixth inning and then barely hung on to defeat the Indians, 11-10, in Monday's series opener.

Chicago, which has struggled offensively for most of the season, has scored 83 runs in the month of July - the second-highest total in the majors - and has hit 22 home runs in the month, most in the majors.

The White Sox will look to give similar support to Garland (7-6, 3.85 ERA), who is 4-1 with a 2.95 ERA in eight road starts this campaign and 15-3 in his last 22 contests away from home overall.

In his last outing, the righthander allowed two runs and eight hits while striking out three and walking two in seven innings of a 9-7 win at Baltimore last Thursday.

Garland will be opposed by Paul Byrd (7-4, 4.41), who was a tough-luck loser in his last start, yielding just one run and four hits while striking out two without walking a batter in 8 1/3 frames of a 1-0 loss at Toronto on July 8.

The righthanded Byrd is 6-2 with a 4.61 ERA in 10 career starts vs. the White Sox, including a 4-0 win on April 14. Byrd tossed six strong innings, allowing five hits in the victory.

The Indians, who are one game behind the Detroit Tigers (54-36) and 12 1/2 games ahead of the White Sox in the American League Central, have alternated wins and losses in their last six games.
