The Chicago White Sox look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The White Sox have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The White Sox have lost four of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Melky Cabrera leads Chicago with 124 hits and 58 RBI while Jose Abreu and Adam Eaton have combined for 97 RBI. The Chicago White Sox have split their last eight home games. Jose Quintana takes the hill, and he’s 6-9 with a 3.59 ERA and 127 strikeouts this season. Quintana is 0-2 with a 3.54 ERA and 17 strikeouts in his career against the Cubs.
The Cubs are 18-8 in their last 26 during game 2 of a series and 7-1 in Arrietas last 8 starts. The White Sox are 5-2 in their last 7 Saturday games and 2-5 in Quintanas last 7 starts. The under is 13-6-3 in the last 22 meetings.
Both teams are putting runs on the board with some consistency as of late. Both teams have also had some success against the opposing pitcher. I like the over in this matchup.
