Starting Pitching Matchup

The Chicago White Sox will send out Drew Thorpe for the start here and Thorpe is 0-0 with a 1.80 ERA and 4 strikeouts this season. This will be Thorpe’s first career start against the Diamondbacks. Arizona will start Jordan Montgomery here and Montgomery is 4-4 with a 6.58 ERA and 32 strikeouts this season.

Chicago White Sox Recap

The Chicago White Sox come into this one looking to win the rubber match of this series after evening the set up at one win apiece thanks to a 9-2 win over the Diamondbacks in Saturday’s matchup. The win gave the White Sox their first chance at a series victory in some time after falling short in their series against the Mariners to start the week and splitting a four-game set with the Red Sox before that.

White Sox Turning The Corner?

Gavin Sheets has a .233 batting average and a .340 OBP along with a team-high 14 doubles and 28 RBIs while Andrew Vaughn also has 9 homers and 28 RBIs and Andrew Benintendi has 4 home runs and 18 RBIs with Vaughn logging 13 doubles as well as a team-high 57 hits. Paul DeJong also has a team-high 14 home runs and 29 RBIs with a team-high 75 strikeouts as well this season.

Arizona Diamondbacks Recap

The Arizona Diamondbacks will try to rebound after their flat performance in Saturday’s matchup, putting Arizona at risk of failing to build on their series win over the Padres to start the week.

Diamondbacks Still Solid Offensively Despite Loss

Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 77 hits in addition to a .282 batting average and 15 doubles with 14 home runs and 38 RBIs while Lourdes Gurriel Jr. also has 9 home runs and 42 RBIs as well this season. Corbin Carroll has a team-high 12 stolen bases while Eugenio Suarez has 77 strikeouts this season. Christian Walker also has 15 home runs with a team-high 46 RBIs of his own in addition to a team-high 80 strikeouts this season.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I’m on the White Sox here. The Diamondbacks have been solid against righties as of late, but Thorpe was pretty good in his debut and I have to give the White Sox credit, they’ve been very competitive for a team with the record that they have. Montgomery’s really struggled for a good chunk of the season, and I think the White Sox have a lot of value in this spot. Give me the White Sox in this one.
