The Chicago White Sox look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The White Sox have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The White Sox have won five straight games when scoring more than three runs. Jose Abreu leads Chicago with 54 hits and 33 RBI while Avisail Garcia and Alexei Ramirez have combined for 41 RBI. The Chicago White Sox have lost five of their last seven road games. John Danks takes the hill, and he’s 3-4 with a 4.81 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season. Danks is 6-10 with a 5.11 ERA and 98 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.
The Tigers are 3-8 in their last 11 during game 2 of a series and 6-1 in Prices last 7 starts. The White Sox are 2-5 in their last 7 games vs. a left-handed starter and 4-1 in Danks' last 5 home starts. The over is 6-2-1 in Danks' last 9 starts vs. Tigers.
Pitching hasn't exactly been the problem for the Tigers lately. Scoring has. So, while Price is usually a must bet, I can't back the Tigers in a game when they're riding an eight-game losing streak and can't put runs on the board. Give me the home team and the juicy line.
