After defeating the host Chicago White Sox 5-2 on Monday in the opener of a three-game series between American League division leaders, the Rays have won seven of eight. On Tuesday, the Rays will try to keep the run going from the moment they dig in against scheduled White Sox starter Dallas Keuchel (5-1, 4.14 ERA).

Keuchel is eager to improve on his longstanding struggles against the Rays. In eight career starts vs. Tampa Bay, Keuchel is 1-5 with a 4.78 ERA, with 35 strikeouts in 49 innings. He has won two of his past three starts, including Thursday, when Keuchel struck out a season-best eight against the Toronto Blue Jays while scattering two runs, six hits and two walks in six innings.

The Rays are set to counter with lefty Shane McClanahan (2-1, 4.54 ERA), who has logged 3 1/3 and 3 innings in his past two starts. He allowed a combined seven runs on 156 pitches in those outings. McClanahan has not faced Chicago in his career, but he enters with a decided advantage. The Rays lead the American League with a 3.03 bullpen ERA.

On Monday, four relievers combined on five scoreless innings of two-hit ball. Rays starter Tyler Glasnow left the game after the fourth due to inflammation in his right (pitching) elbow. Tim Anderson had a pair of hits for Chicago while Brian Goodwin, recently called up from Triple-A Charlotte, continued his strong start with the club, delivering an RBI single and a diving catch to rob Randy Arozarena of a hit.
