The New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox meet in MLB action from Guaranteed Rate Field on Sunday.
The New York Yankees will look to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to the White Sox in Saturday’s matchup. Aaron Judge leads the Yankees with 12 home runs along with 37 hits and a .306 batting average along with 6 doubles while Giancarlo Stanton has 26 hits with 10 home runs and a team-high 31 RBIs. DJ LeMahieu also has a team-high 9 doubles so far this season. Nestor Cortes Jr. will start this one and is 1-1 with a 1.41 ERA and 42 strikeouts this season.
The Chicago White Sox will look to build on their win over the Yankees from Saturday. Tim Anderson leads the White Sox with 39 hits including 4 home runs, 8 doubles and a .339 batting average while Luis Robert, Gavin Sheets and Andrew Vaughn each have 4 home runs as well with Vaughn and Jose Abreu each have a team-leading 12 RBIs. Michael Kopech will start here and is 0-0 with a 0.93 ERA and 30 strikeouts this season.
New York is 7-1 in their last 8 road games and 20-6 in their last 26 games as a favorite while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. Chicago is 7-3 in their last 10 games overall and 13-39 in their last 52 games as an underdog while the over is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games as a home underdog.
I get the case to be made for either side here, but I’m looking at the under here. Cortes has been on fire for the Yankees as of late and while Kopech hasn’t been going all that deep into games, he’s been pitching fairly well and I think the White Sox and Yankees, despite all the power in their respective lineups, could be in for a bit of a pitcher’s duel here. Give me the under.
