Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Japanese two-way sensation Shohei Ohtani, who threw a 37-pitch bullpen yesterday to test a blister on his right middle finger, stretched and played catch in the outfield at Minute Maid Park. Ohtani is slated to start vs. the Astros tomorrow in the second of 19 games between the AL West rivals.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Over the course of the long baseball season, in any given series even a good team can look over-matched. The White Sox do not look like a good team by any measure right now, and they certainly looked over-matched this weekend against the champion Astros. Houston completed a three-game sweep on Sunday with a 7-1 win. The Astros outscored Chicago 27-2 in the series. On the bright side, the White Sox avoided becoming the first team since 1929 to allow double-digit runs in five straight games. The Astros will now return home for a big series against the Los Angeles Angels.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The White Sox have now allowed 10 or more runs in four straight games. According to ESPN Stats & Info, that ties the longest such streak in franchise history. If the streak reaches five on Sunday -- a definite possibility with the way Houston has been swinging the bats this weekend -- it would be the fifth time a team has given up five straight games of double-digit runs. The last team do it was the Philadelphia Phillies -- in 1929.
