Johnny Cueto's next challenge: Help White Sox tame Astros

Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Johnny Cueto said his teammates were lacking internal desire after his last outing.

They must have been listening. The White Sox have since won three of four to get back within two games of the final American League wild-card spot. They also are tied for second in the Central Division, 2 1/2 games behind the Cleveland Guardians.

It will be up to Cueto (4-5, 2.91 ERA) to keep Chicago on a roll when the 36-year-old right-hander takes the mound against the visiting Houston Astros on Monday night in the opener of a four-game series.
