Chicago White Sox Recap

The Chicago White Sox will try to rebound after starting the series with a 7-1 loss at the hands of the Diamondbacks on Friday. The loss was another brick in the wall for the White Sox after their series loss to the Mariners earlier this week.

Paul DeJong also has a team-high 13 home runs and 28 RBIs with a team-high 73 strikeouts as well this season.

  • The Diamondbacks have failed to cover the run line in five of their last six night games against American League opponents following a home win.

Diamondbacks Starting To Heat Up At The Dish

Corbin Carroll has a team-high 12 stolen bases while Eugenio Suarez has a team-high 76 strikeouts this season. Christian Walker also has 15 home runs with a team-high 46 RBIs of his own in addition to 76 strikeouts this season.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I’m leaning towards the White Sox here. It would be nice to know who the Diamondbacks are starting in this one, and there’s a definite possibility it could be a bullpen game, but it looks like the White Sox have a pair of pitchers that are their best shot at getting a win from starting pitching and that’s Garrett Crochet and Erick Fedde. Fedde’s been really good for the White Sox this season and while I do prefer backing Fedde at home, I think he can be competitive enough to help the White Sox steal one here. Not one I’m rushing to bet necessarily, but I’ll side with the White Sox in this one.
