Obviously, there’s not a lot of turnaround time between games today, so here’s the essential information for the second game of today’s doubleheader between the Indians and White Sox after Chicago took the opener, 7-6, behind the strength of Todd Frazier’s league-leading 14th home run in the first, Brett Lawrie’s three-run jack in the fifth and two RBI from Austin Jackson. Mat Latos gave up three runs on five hits in six innings to pick up his sixth win of the year and the bullpen just barely hung on for the victory.

Erik Johnson, who hasn’t started in the Majors since May 5 when he gave up four runs in five innings in a loss to the Red Sox, will go for the South Siders. Cleveland will counter with their 26th man on the roster, Cody Anderson, who’s given up 10 home runs in 32 2/3 innings this season and will be sent back down to Triple-A following his start tonight.
