Chicago White Sox (31-30) vs. LA Angels of Anaheim (31-28)

Andre Rienzo (4-2 4.26 ERA) vs. Jered Weaver (6-4 3.33 ERA)
It was a less than efficient day for the right-hander, who needed 80 pitches to get through 3 1/3 innings on Saturday. Rienzo struck out four, walked two and allowed seven hits, but he admitted that his command was a major issue.
The Angels' ace was on fire from April 18 to May 21, going 5-1 with a 1.70 ERA. But in his last two starts, Weaver has given up three runs in six innings against the Mariners and six runs (five earned) in six innings against the A's.

Chris Sale (5-0 1.59 ERA) vs. Matt Shoemaker (3-1 4.03 ERA)
There isn't much that Sale can't do with the baseball right now. The left-hander needed just 100 pitches to pick up a complete-game victory against the Padres on Sunday, striking out nine and not issuing a walk.
Shoemaker will take the ball Saturday on eight days' rest, having been pushed back to provide some length out of the bullpen and allow the Angels to have a deeper bench. Shoemaker has a 3.38 ERA in four Major League starts this season.

Jose Quintana (3-5 3.31 ERA) vs. CJ Wilson (6-5 3.52 ERA)
Once again, Quintana deserved a better fate. He allowed five runs in a 5-2 loss to the Dodgers on Monday night but all five of those runs were unearned after two costly sixth-inning errors. Quintana threw 105 pitches over six innings, fanning five.
Wilson felt under the weather when he took the mound against the Astros on Tuesday, and it showed. He walked a season-high five batters, gave up five runs (his highest total since April 1) and lasted only 2 2/3 innings.
