The Chicago White Sox could use a win here after losing eight of their last nine games. The White Sox have allowed 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 11 of their last 13 games. The Chicago White Sox have lost eight of their last 10 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Jose Abreu leads the White Sox with 105 hits and 59 RBI while Melky Cabrera and Avisail Garcia have combined for 202 hits and 107 RBI. Carlos Rodon gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 4.32 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. This will be Rodon’s first career game against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 4-1 in their last 5 Wednesday games, 48-23 in their last 71 during game 2 of a series and 8-2 in Maedas last 10 starts. The White Sox are 5-18 in their last 23 Wednesday games, 5-2 in Rodons last 7 home starts and 1-5 in Rodons last 6 starts with 9 or more days of rest. The Dodgers are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Chicago and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
It's gotten to the point now where you just don't pick against the Dodgers, as they have everything going for them right now and the offense consistently puts up numbers most teams can't keep up with. The White Sox are in rebuild mode and are trading their team away while piling up the losses. Added to the fact Rodon is coming off a game in which he was rocked by the Rockies. The Dodgers should win another one.
