The Chicago White Sox need a win after losing five of their last six games. The White Sox have scored 12 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The White Sox have split their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Jose Abreu leads Chicago with 97 hits and 47 RBI while Melky Cabrera and Avisail Garcia have combined for 67 RBI. The Chicago White Sox have lost five of their last eight home games. John Danks takes the hill, and he’s 5-8 with a 4.98 ERA and 68 strikeouts this season. This will be Danks’ first career game against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals are 2-6 in their last 8 during game 2 of a series and 6-2 in Lynns last 8 starts. The White Sox are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 7-3 in Danks' last 10 home starts. The Cardinals are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings.
Hard to bet against Lynn and the cheap chalk, especially with the White Sox stinking up the joint as of late. The White Sox are just showing no signs of consistency, which hurts in this match because that's what the Cards are each and every season.
