The Chicago White Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays face off on Sunday at US Cellular Field as they close out their series.
The Chicago White Sox pulled out a miracle win on Friday Night but they were unable to follow it up on Saturday losing to the Rays. Paul Konerko and Gordon Beckham each had two hits and Dayan Viciedo had a hit as the White Sox were shutout on five hits. Starting pitcher John Danks allowed seven hits and four runs while striking gout four over 5.2 innings tp take the loss and fall to 2-1 for the season. For Saturday’s game the White Sox start Scott Carroll who has never pitched in the Majors while being in the Minors for eight seasons. This season Carroll is 3-1 with a 1.57 ERA in his four starts in the Minor Leagues this season.

The Tampa Bay Rays weren’t about to let two games in a row get away from them as they took the lead on Saturday and never let it go. James Loney had three hits and Yunel Escobar and Ryan Hanigan each had two hits as the Rays scored four runs on nine hits. Starting pitcher Cesar Ramos allowed five hits and over five innings to get the win and go to 1-1 for the season. For Sunday’s game the Rays start David Price who won his last start. For the season Price has allowed 35 hits and 16 earned runs while striking out 40 over 35.2 innings for a 3-1 record and a 4.04 ERA.
Chicago is 4-9 as a home underdog, 12-30 as an underdog, and 2-9 in their last 11 games against a team with a losing record. Tampa Bay is 2-4 against the AL Central, 1-4 in their last five road games, and 4-1 in Price’s last five starts. Tampa Bay is 6-1 in the last seven meetings of these two.
I don’t love the Rays here but their best in Price against a career Minor Leaguer they are tough not to take here.
