Peyton Battenfield gets the ball, and he is 0-4 with a 4.45 ERA and 25 strikeouts this season. This will be Battenfield’s first career game against the White Sox.
Chicago White Sox Betting Preview
The Chicago White Sox have scored 14 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 7 of their last 12 games. The White Sox have lost 6 of their last 7 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Luis Robert Jr. leads the White Sox with 43 hits and 28 RBI, while Andrew Benintendi and Andrew Vaughn have combined for 80 hits and 39 RBI.

The Guardians are 17-7 in their last 24 Wednesday games and 1-4 in their last 5 road games. The White Sox are 9-20 in their last 29 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The under is 21-5-2 in Guardians last 28 overall. The under is 4-0 in White Sox last 4 overall. The Guardians are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Chicago.
We have two offenses that are having issues scoring, so the over can be a bit intimidating. However, Peyton Battenfield and Mike Clevinger have had their struggles this season, with ERAs well over 4 and issues with walks as well. This could be a spot where the bats finally wake up. I'll take a stab with the over in this game.
