The Chicago White Sox and the Milwaukee Brewers meet in MLB action from Miller Park on Monday.
The Chicago White Sox will try to build off of a 9-2 win over the Kansas City Royals in their last game on Sunday. Yasmani Grandal led the White sox with three RBIs while going 3 for 4 at the dish while Nicky Delmonico had two RBIS and Jose Abreu and Nick Madrigal each had an RBI with Madrigal going 4 for 5 at the dish while Abreu went 2 for 5 with a double. Edwin Encarnacion went 2 for 4 while Danny Mendick and Luis Robert each had a base hit to cap off the White Sox offense in the win. Dylan Cease got the win to improve to 1-1 after allowing two runs on five hits while striking out four over six innings of work. Carlos Rodon will start this one and is 0-1 with a 12.27 ERA and 4 strikeouts this season. This will be Rodon’s first career start against the Brewers.
The Milwaukee Brewers have had time to rest up after having their entire three-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals postponed after a COVID-19 outbreak on the Cardinals’ roster. Keston Hiura leads the Brewers with two home runs and five RBIs this season as well as a team-high six hits in 23 at-bats. Lorenzo Cain has 6 hits as well for a .333 batting average but opted out of the season over health concerns this past weekend. Brandon Woodruff has been the rock of the pitching rotation, going 1-1 with a 1.59 ERA in 11.1 innings with 15 strikeouts. Adrian Houser is second on the innings pitched list with 5 innings under his belt but he will start here and is 0-0 with a 1.80 ERA and 4 strikeouts this season. This will be Houser’s first career start against the White Sox.
Trends will be updated once they’ve been released.
Rodon’s usually got some magic stuff when he’s really on but lately, he’s been a pinata for opposing teams for the most part and that’s not good when the White Sox have been disappointing to begin with and Milwaukee’s had a few days to rest up and have also been itching to get back out there and play. I’ll side with the Brewers to pick up a win here.
