Chicago White Sox Recap

The Chicago White Sox will look to win the rubber match of the series after evening the set up at one win apiece thanks to a 5-1 win in Saturday’s matchup. The win gives the White Sox a chance at a rare series win after series losses to the Astros and Diamondbacks in the last week.

Paul DeJong also has a team-high 14 home runs and 30 RBIs with a team-high 81 strikeouts as well this season.

Why the Chicago White Sox will win

  • The Tigers have lost each of their last five games after playing the previous day.
  • The White Sox have won seven of their last eight day games against the Tigers following a win.
  • The Tigers have failed to cover the run line in each of their last seven games as favorites against American League opponents.
  • The White Sox have covered the run line in each of their last six games against the Tigers.

Detroit Tigers Recap

The Detroit Tigers come into this one looking to bounce back and win the series after their loss to the White Sox on Saturday. The loss put the Tigers at risk of another series loss after series losses to the Braves and Astros over the last week.

Tigers Offense Non-existent

Riley Greene leads the Tigers with 71 hits including 14 home runs and 37 RBIs along with 15 doubles, a .257 batting average and a .352 OBP in addition to a team-high 84 strikeouts this season. Mark Canha has 13 doubles, 6 home runs and 30 RBI and Javier Baez has a team-high 6 stolen bases. Matt Vierling also has 61 hits as well as 4 triples while Wenceel Perez has 5 triples and Kerry Carpenter has 10 doubles and 4 triples of his own with 29 RBIs.

  • The White Sox have lost eight of their last nine road games following a win.
  • The White Sox have failed to cover the run line in seven of their last eight games as underdogs following a win.
  • The Tigers have covered the run line in six of their last seven games following a home loss.

Detroit Tigers vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I’m on the under here. The White Sox still have one of the least effective offenses in baseball despite some decent showings over the last week. On the other side, the Tigers have scored 2 runs or less in 6 straight games and Jonathan Cannon’s been rock solid so I don’t know if that’s going to change here. All in all, I think this ends up being a low-scoring game, so give me the under in this one.
