The Houston Astros and Chicago White Sox meet Sunday in MLB action at Guaranteed Rate Field. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Houston Astros have scored 11 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 10 games. The Astros have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Mauricio Dubon leads the Astros with 39 hits and 7 RBI, while Jeremy Pena and Kyle Tucker have combined for 71 hits and 46 RBI. Hunter Brown gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 3.23 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. This will be Brown’s first career game against the White Sox.

The Chicago White Sox have scored 7 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 5 of their last 8 games. The White Sox have lost 5 of their last 6 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Luis Robert Jr. leads the White Sox with 40 hits and 26 RBI, while Andrew Benintendi and Andrew Vaughn have combined for 75 hits and 38 RBI. Lucas Giolito gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 3.59 ERA and 50 strikeouts this season. Giolito is 2-5 with a 5.94 ERA and 38 strikeouts in his career against the Astros.

The Astros are 23-6 in their last 29 Sunday games and 42-12 in their last 54 during game 3 of a series. The White Sox are 8-19 in their last 27 home games and 18-37 in their last 55 overall. The under is 4-1 in Astros last 5 overall. The over is 13-5-1 in White Sox last 19 home games. The Astros are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

Decent pitching matchup between Hunter Brown and Lucas Giolito, but the Astros are just the more trustworthy team overall so far this season. The White Sox have issues finishing games, and their offense this week isn't showing up. Reasonable price with the Astros. I'll take the road team for a bounce back win.
