The Toronto Blue Jays look to sweep the Chicago White Sox Wednesday afternoon.
The Chicago White Sox look to snap a four-game losing streak. The White Sox have scored 10 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last nine games. The White Sox have lost six of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Avisail Garcia leads Chicago with 48 hits and 18 RBI while Jose Abreu and Alexei Ramirez have combined for 47 RBI. The Chicago White Sox have won five of their last seven road games. Jeff Samardzija gets the ball, and he’s 4-2 with a 4.28 ERA and 49 strikeouts this season. This will be Samardzija’s second career game against the Blue Jays.

The Toronto Blue Jays look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Blue Jays have scored 24 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last six games. The Blue Jays have won five straight games when scoring more than three runs. Josh Donaldson leads Toronto with 58 hits and 33 RBI while Edwin Encarnacion and Russell Martin have combined for 55 RBI. The Toronto Blue Jays have split their last eight home games. Marco Estrada takes the hill, and he’s 1-3 with a 3.90 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. This will be Estrada’s first career game against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 5-13 in their last 18 Wednesday games and 1-4 in Samardzijas last 5 road starts. The Blue Jays are 9-3 in their last 12 games as a home favorite and 0-4 in Estradas last 4 starts. The under is 19-9 in the last 28 meetings.
I'm not sure the White Sox will be able to rebound after such a tough loss Tuesday night, as they had the game wrapped up before allowing a three-run shot. I like the home team on short rest.
