Chicago White Sox vs Atlanta Braves Prediction

I’ll take a stab on the White Sox as a value play here. Probably not touching it with Sale on the mound for the Braves, though. As for Thorpe, he’s had an adventurous June. It started out with one earned in 5.0 innings versus Seattle, then dipped down to seven earned in 3.1 frames versus the Diamondbacks. Thorpe bounced back in his last start though, posting a win with 6.0 clean frames against the Tigers.

On Wednesday the White Sox really only had the one bad inning on the mound. That said, Chicago couldn’t do anything on offense with just four team hits and no walks. It’s going to be even tougher against Sale on Thursday.
