The Chicago White Sox look to finish strong and build on their four-game winning streak. The White Sox have scored 23 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Chicago White Sox offense has caught fire recently, and they’ve won six of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Jose Abreu leads Chicago with 181 hits, Adam Eaton has 59 RBI and Melky Cabrera has 14 home runs. Miguel Gonzalez takes the hill, and he’s 4-8 with a 3.98 ERA and 90 strikeouts this season. Gonzalez is 6-4 with a 3.02 ERA and 63 strikeouts in his career against the Rays.
The Rays are 9-4 in their last 13 during game 3 of a series and 1-4 in Snells last 5 road starts. The White Sox are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 4-1 in Gonzalezs last 5 home starts. The Rays are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
The White Sox seem like they want to finish the season on a positive note, while the Rays are getting rocked left and right and are planning vacation trips. Gonzalez has also been rather decent this season which includes allowing three or less runs in four of his last five games. Give me the hot White Sox.
