The Line: Boston Red Sox / Chicago White Sox -- Over/Under:
The Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox meet Sunday in MLB action at Guaranteed Rate Field.
The Boston Red Sox look for another win after winning five of their last six games. The Red Sox have scored 25 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last six games. The Boston Red Sox have won 11 of their last 13 games when scoring four or more runs. J.D. Martinez leads the Red Sox with 41 hits and 17 RBI while Mookie Betts and Rafael Devers have combined for 73 hits and 33 RBI. Rick Porcello gets the ball, and he is 2-3 with a 5.52 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. Porcello is 11-9 with a 4.39 ERA and 98 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The White Sox have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Chicago White Sox are 0-12 this season when scoring three or less runs. Tim Anderson leads the White Sox with 38 hits and 18 RBI while Yoan Moncada and Jose Abreu have combined for 72 hits and 52 RBI. Dylan Covey gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA and zero strikeouts this season. Covey is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 13-4 in their last 17 during game 4 of a series, 25-10 in their last 35 Sunday games and 17-7 in Porcellos last 24 starts on grass. The White Sox are 5-2 in their last 7 home games, 0-7 in Coveys last 7 home starts and 6-21 in Coveys last 27 starts. The Red Sox are 4-1 in Porcellos last 5 starts vs. White Sox. The under is 3-0-2 in Coveys last 5 starts overall. The over is 4-1 in Porcellos last 5 road starts.
The Boston Red Sox are finally starting to put things together with some solid wins under their belt and a more complete effort. Porcello is also coming off his best start of the year when he held a talented A's lineup to two hits and zero runs in eight innings. The Chicago White Sox have zero success with Covey on the mound, and I'm not sure how much you can trust him with just 1.1 innings on the mound this season. The Red Sox should be able to keep their hot streak going.
