• The starting line-up for the White Sox is as follows:

• The starting line-up for the Mariners is as follows:

• With each day, second-year catcher Cal Raleigh’s leadership role with the Seattle Mariners expands. Raleigh guided Logan Gilbert through six scoreless innings, threw out a baserunner and hit a two-run homer as the Mariners defeated the visiting Chicago White Sox 3-0 Tuesday night.

• Raleigh was sent down to Triple-A Tacoma in late April when he was batting just .083, only to return 10 days later when Tom Murphy sustained a season-ending shoulder injury. Now he leads all major league catchers with 23 homers.

• Raleigh, who hit a two-run shot in the eighth inning on Tuesday, has five homers and 11 RBIs over his past seven games as the Mariners close in on their first playoff berth since 2001. Seattle (77-59) is 19-2 in games in which Raleigh goes deep.

• The White Sox (68-68) lost for just the third time in eight games without manager Tony La Russa, who is on indefinite leave due to health issues.

• White Sox center fielder Luis Robert left in the middle of the fifth inning due to a bruised left hand and is considered day-to-day. Robert was hit in the back of the hand while swinging at an inside pitch earlier in the game.

• White Sox right-hander Michael Kopech (4-9, 3.58 ERA), who has been out since Aug. 23 with a strained left knee, is scheduled to return to start the series finale. Kopech will be making his first career start against Seattle. He had a scoreless two-inning relief appearance vs. the Mariners last year.

• The Mariners are set to counter with right-hander Luis Castillo (6-5, 2.71 ERA), who is 2-1 with a 2.39 ERA in six starts since he was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds at the trade deadline. He is 0-0 with a 1.35 in one previous career start vs. the White Sox, for the Reds in 2018.
