The White Sox have won eight of their last 10 when scoring more than three runs. Jose Abreu leads Chicago with 160 hits and 90 RBI while Melky Cabrera and Adam Eaton have combined for 111 RBI. The Chicago White Sox have split their last eight home games. Jeff Samardzija takes the hill, and he’s 9-12 with a 4.89 ERA and 151 strikeouts this season. This is Samardzija’s second career game against the Athletics.
The Athletics are 7-19 in their last 26 road games and 1-4 in Brooks' last 5 starts. The White Sox are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 1-7 in Samardzijas last 8 starts. The Athletics are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Chicago.
The A's have ben waiting for the offseason to kick in for a while now, and they simply can't win lately no matter how many runs they put on the board. Oakland will be drained after losing such a long game on Monday. I look the Sox to steal another one at home.
