The Chicago White Sox look for a win to get back to a .500 record. The White Sox have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in three of their last four games. The White Sox have won 10 of their last 14 games when scoring four or more runs. Yermin Mercedes leads the White Sox with nine hits and six RBI while Luis Robert and Adam Eaton have combined for nine hits and four RBI. Lucas Giolito gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 3.38 ERA and eight strikeouts this season. This will be Giolito’s second career game against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners look for a win to get a game above a .500 record. The Mariners have scored seven runs in their last three games and four or more runs in two of their first four games. The Mariners have won five straight games when scoring four or more runs.

The White Sox are 7-2 in their last 9 during game 2 of a series and 24-49 in their last 73 Tuesday games. The Mariners are 12-31 in their last 43 Tuesday games and 5-11 in their last 16 during game 2 of a series. The over is 8-3 in White Sox last 11 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Mariners last 5 overall. The White Sox are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.
The Chicago White Sox are the better team here and should be favored, but we're getting a solid pitcher in Paxton who had a wonderful three-years stretch before last season. In his six previous years with Seattle, Paxton had a 3.42 ERA and 1.1 WHIP with an average of 9.5 strikeouts per nine innings. There should be some energy in the air with Paxton back on the mound. I'll take a shot with the plus money here.
