The St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago White Sox meet Sunday in MLB action at Guaranteed Rate Field.
The St. Louis Cardinals look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Cardinals have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their first seven games. The Cardinals are 4-0 this season when scoring more than three runs. Paul Goldschmidt leads the Cardinals with nine hits and three RBI while Tommy Edman and Dexter Fowler have combined for 12 hits and eight RBI. Dakota Hudson gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 8.31 ERA and four strikeouts this season. This will be Hudson’s first career game against the White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The White Sox have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in eight of their last 11 games. The White Sox have lost six of their last seven games when scoring three or less runs. Luis Robert leads the White Sox with 22 hits and 10 RBI while Jose Abreu and Yoan Moncada have combined for 41 hits and 20 RBI. Dallas Keuchel gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 3.04 ERA and 15 strikeouts this season. Keuchel is 0-2 with a 10.03 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals are 2-6 in their last 8 interleague games, 1-6 in their last 7 games as an underdog and 1-6 in their last 7 interleague games as an underdog. The White Sox are 7-3 in their last 10 games as a favorite, 18-44 in their last 62 interleague games and 1-6 in their last 7 home games. The under is 4-0 in Cardinals last 4 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in White Sox last 6 Sunday games. The Cardinals are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Chicago and 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
Hudson wasn't great in his debut, allowing four runs and seven hits in 4.1 innings against the Pirates, and he hasn't pitched in over two weeks. Keuchel has allowed four runs and 11 hits in his last 13 innings, which includes 12 strikeouts. The White Sox have the more trustworthy pitcher on the mound, and they're kind of due for a victory after some rough recent performances. I'll lay the cheap price with Chicago in this spot.
