Facing Astros, White Sox turn to Lance Lynn to avoid 3-game skid

The Chicago White Sox will look to avoid just their second three-game losing streak of the season when they face the host Houston Astros on Saturday night after dropping the first two contests of a four-game series between two of baseball's best teams.

"It's pretty close as you can get to a playoff atmosphere," said White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodon, who pitched exceptionally over seven innings on Friday. "It was fun to be out there and hear that, but it's definitely a tough loss."

The White Sox entered the series tied with the San Francisco Giants for the best record in the majors. Now they have dropped consecutive games for the first time since losing to the Cleveland Indians on May 31 and June 1. Thus far, the Astros have been worthy adversaries, defeating the White Sox 10-2 on Thursday and 2-1 on Friday.
