White Sox vs. Phillies Prediction

I’m on the Phillies here. I’m a fan of Garrett Crochet, but I worry for him here as he can pitch as well as he wants, but even giving up one or two runs in a start could be enough for the loss with how anemic this White Sox offense can be. Philadelphia’s had inconsistencies as well, and I’m kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop with Spencer Turnbull, but he’s been solid out of the gate and still has the more trustworthy lineup behind him. Give me the Phillies.
