The Kansas City Royals and the Chicago White Sox meet in an AL Central division matchup in MLB action from Guaranteed Rate Field on Sunday afternoon. Let’s dive into the starting pitching matchup, history and make a prediction for this game.

Starting Pitching Matchup

The Royals did not have a starting pitcher announced at the time that this article was posted. The White Sox will start Lance Lynn here and Lynn is 1-5 with a 7.51 ERA and 54 strikeouts this season.

Matchup History

Chicago’s 5-1 win on Saturday made it back-to-back wins for the White Sox in this head-to-head matchup over the Royals.


Kansas City is 16-40 in their last 56 games overall and 4-11 in their last 15 division games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. Chicago is 4-1 in their last 5 hoe games and 4-14 in their last 18 games following a win while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 home games.


I’m backing the over here. I don’t have a pitcher announced for KC, but with the way the White Sox have been scoring the last week or so, I’m not sure it matters. On the other side, the Royals have had some scoring issues, but against Lance Lynn, those issues have a chance to be fixed at least for one day. Lynn has been brutal and also gave up 7 runs to the Royals in a start against KC earlier this season. Give me the over.
