The Chicago Cubs looks for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Cubs have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Cubs have won four of their last five games when scoring more than three runs. Anthony Rizzo leads Chicago with 90 hits and 48 RBI while Kris Bryant and Starlin Castro have combined for 88 RBI. The Chicago Cubs have split their last eight home games. Jon Lester takes the hill, and he’s 4-7 with a 3.48 ERA and 101 strikeouts this season. Lester is 6-5 with a 4.38 ERA and 78 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 17-35 in their last 52 games as a road underdog and 6-0 in Sales last 6 interleague starts. The Cubs are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 5-2 in their last 7 interleague home games. The White Sox are 10-4 in the last 14 meetings in Chicago.
The White Sox remain one of the hottest teams in the league and now have their ace on the hill. I find it hard to bet against Sale with the low line.
