For the week of May 27-June 2.
Hot team: Houston Astros

Upcoming schedule: at Mariners, vs. A’s
Skinny: The White Sox were shut out three times last week – twice by the Oakland A’s and once by the Chicago Cubs. The six-game losing streak comes on the heels of a stretch where Chicago won five of six to get back into contention in the AL Central.
