White Sox Have Lost Four Straight Games

The White Sox have lost four straight games and the pitching has been an issue. The White Sox scored three runs on Saturday while the pitching gave up five on the way to the defeat. Gavin Sheets was the only bright spot for the offense hitting a home run and driving in three RBIs. The White Sox are averaging 2.94 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.08 runs per game. The offense is ranked 30th in the league while the pitching is ranked 28th. In this game the White Sox need to get the offense going early to try and put the pressure early on. Getting the start for the White Sox will be Garrett Crochet who sits with a 5-4 record and an ERA of 3.75. Over his last four starts he has been dominant and given up only one run total. The White Sox will meet the Blue Jays after this series.

Orioles Comeback Late

The Orioles needed a late comeback on Saturday but they were able to secure the 5-3 victory. The Orioles scored five runs in the top of the 8th and that was enough for the victory. Ryan O’Hearn hit a home run and drove in two RBIs. Anthony Santander also hit a home run and drove in two RBIs. The Orioles are averaging 4.69 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.8 runs per game. The offense is ranked 5th in the league while the pitching is ranked 7th. Gunnar Henderson has hit 17 home runs and driven in 37 RBis. Getting the start for the Orioles will be Kyle Bradish who sits with a 0-0 record and an ERA of 2.41.

  • The White Sox have failed to cover the run line each of their last seven games against teams that held a winning record.

Chicago White Sox vs Baltimore Orioles Prediction

Runs are going to be very hard to come by in this game. Bradish is coming off a start where he dominated giving up only one run. Crochet has also been dominant heading into this game and over his last four starts he has given only one run total. Crochet especially is going to dominate here and neither team is going to find a lot of success with the offense. Back the under to cash here with ease.
