The Chicago White Sox need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The White Sox have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 10 games. The White Sox have won five of their last eight when scoring more than three runs. Jose Abreu leads Chicago with 142 hits and 79 RBI while Melky Cabrera and Adam Eaton have combined for 95 RBI. The Chicago White Sox have lost six of their last nine home games. Jose Quintana takes the hill, and he’s 7-10 with a 3.63 ERA and 140 strikeouts this season. Quintana is 0-1 with a 3.80 ERA and 21 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 9-20 in their last 29 during game 4 of a series and 5-0 in their last 5 Sunday games. The White Sox are 2-7 in their last 9 Sunday games and 1-4 in Quintanas last 5 home starts. The Mariners are 12-39 in the last 51 meetings in Chicago.
If the White Sox ae going to make a last second wild card push, it's going to start now. The White Sox have to get hot again, and they're scoring the runs, just haven't gotten the pitching. I like Quintana to pickup a big win on a quick turnaround.
