Rain forces White Sox-Angels twin bill

By Doug Padilla

CHICAGO -- The opener to the Chicago White Sox's six-game homestand will have to wait a day after Monday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels was postponed by rain.

The teams are now scheduled to play a straight doubleheader starting at 4:10 p.m. CT on Tuesday.

Scheduled starting pitchers Hector Noesi of the White Sox and Garrett Richards of the Angels will now pitch in Tuesday's first game. In Game 2, the White Sox’s Scott Carroll will face off against the Angels’ Jered Weaver.

The Angels will make one rotation change. Instead of starting right-hander Matt Shoemaker in Wednesday's game, they will go with left-hander Tyler Skaggs, who is coming off the disabled list. The White Sox are staying with John Danks for Wednesday's game.

The White Sox are coming off an 11-game road trip, their longest of the season, and are set to play the Angels for three games and the Seattle Mariners for three starting Friday. After struggling to start the trip, the White Sox won their final three games, all at Toronto.
