Milwaukee Brewers vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I’m on the Brewers here. Is Tobias Myers my favorite option in the Brewers rotation? No, but the White Sox offense has been god awful for much of the season, and it’s hard to back them with any sort of confidence here. Erick Fedde has fantastic numbers on the year, but it’s worth noting all of his success has come at home and on the road, Fedde has an ERA near six. I think the Brewers have the much more potent lineup here and get to Fedde and the White Sox. Give me Milwaukee here.
