The Angels are 4-0 in their last four Tuesday games and 5-1 in their last six after an off day. LA is 12-5 in their last 17 versus the AL Central and 2-5 in their last seven overall.
Meanwhile, the Sox are 4-0 in their last four Tuesday games and 11-2 in their last 13 in game one of a series. Chicago is 19-7 in their last 26 at home versus a lefty starter and 64-29 in their last 93 home games.
PICK: I’m going to try the White Sox here. I do like Naughton to pitch well, however. He’s been pretty solid in his last three games outside of 3.2 innings with three earned versus the Yankees. In the other pair of that trio, Naughton has zero earned on five hits and four walks in 9.1 innings. Still, Chicago had a good series against Boston over the weekend and I like the White Sox to keep it going with another tight victory in this one.
