The Chicago White Sox have won eight of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs.

The Nationals are 4-10 in their last 14 interleague games, 3-13 in their last 16 Monday games and 1-5 in Sanchez's last 6 road starts. The White Sox are 6-1 in their last 7 Monday games, 15-36 in their last 51 interleague games and 0-5 in their last 5 vs. National League East. The Nationals are 8-1 in the last 9 meetings. The under is 6-2 in White Sox last 8 overall. The under is 7-3 in Sanchez's last 10 starts overall.
Sanchez has been much better lately, allowing just six hits and one run in his last 12.2 innings, so maybe that's a turning point in the veterans season. Despaigne has been awful throughout his MLB career and the fact he has yet to pitch this season doesn't make me feel any better. While I'm still iffy on Sanchez turning things around, backing Despaigne isn't an option given his history and lack of recent reps on the big league stage. I'll side with the Washington Nationals.
