The Chicago White Sox and the New York Yankees meet in MLB action from Yankee Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Chicago White Sox will look to bounce back from a 7-0 loss at the hands of the Yankees on Saturday. Nick Madrigal went 2 for 3 with a triple and Jose Abreu added a pair of hits as well while Tim Anderson added a base hit as well as the loss as Chicago had just five hits as a team in the loss. Dylan Cease took the loss, falling to 2-1 on the year after allowing five runs on five hits while striking out six over 4.1 innings of work. Dallas Keuchel will start here and is 3-1 with a 4.44 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. In his career, Keuchel is 3-2 with a 2.45 ERA against the Yankees.
The New York Yankees will look to build on their win over the White Sox on Saturday. Gleyber Torres led the Yankees, going 3 for 4 with a double and four RBIs while Mike Ford had a solo home run. Miguel Andujar and Rougned Odor each have a double and an RBI to round out the Yankees’ scoring as a team in the winning effort. Aaron Judge and Brett Gardner each went 2 for 4 at the dish and Luke Voit added a base hit as well to cap off New York’s offense in the victory. Gerrit Cole got the win to improve to 6-2 on the year after throwing seven shutout innings, giving up four hits while striking out seven on the way to the win. Jameson Taillon will start here and is 1-3 with a 5.73 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season. This will be Taillon’s second career start against the White Sox.
Chicago is 16-5 in their last 21 games following a loss and 10-4 in their last 14 games overall while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games as a road underdog. New York is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win and 6-0 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite. The under is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams.
I get why the Yankees would be favored here at home, but realistically Jameson Taillon is still not a pitcher I want any part of. Neither is Dallas Keuchel in all fairness, but the White Sox have been tearing the cover off of the ball lately and are giving us some really good value on Sunday. Give me the White Sox and the plus money here.
