The Chicago White Sox shoot for another win against the St Louis Cardinals in interleague action.
I always say the Chicago White Sox have the ability to beat any team, anywhere and they proved that Tuesday. The White Sox squeezed by the Cardinals 2-1 in eleven innings behind outstanding work on the mound. Chris Sale continued his torrid pitching with a homer served up over eight frames while striking out 12. The bats logged nine hits and walked twice with Jose Abreu driving in Sale with Tyler Flowers homering in the 11th to win it. Left hander Jose Quintana has been a steady member of the White Sox rotation. Quintana comes off a 5-4 loss at Detroit with three runs allowed on eleven hits over six frames.

The St Louis Cardinals have been piling up the wins behind the best pitching in the game. The pitching was outstanding once again on Tuesday but the offense struggled in defeat but the Redbirds have still won eight of eleven. Starter Lance Lynn kept his team in the game with a run allowed on six hits through six frames with Miguel Socolovich surrendering a long ball in the 11th to absorb the loss. The Cards totaled eight hits and walked two times with Randal Grichuk going 3-5 with a homer and double. Veteran John Lackey toes the rubber against the White Sox for the first time since 2010. Lackey defeated the Cubs 3-2 in his last outing with both runs plated on eight hits and three BB in seven innings.
The White Sox are 4-12 in their last 16 overall and are 4-9 in their last 13 games on grass while going 19-40 in their last 59 road games. St Louis are 44-10 in their last 54 home games and are 41-12 in their last 53 games as a favorite while the under is 21-7-2 in their last 30 interleague games. Right now I’m looking at the under with runs being at a premium…
