Chicago White Sox +168 / Washington Nationals -178 O/U: 9.5
The Washington Nationals and the Chicago White Sox will finish up their quick two-game set in MLB activity Tuesday.
In the Monday edition of this series, the Nationals put up nine runs in the final three innings to finish off a 12-1 beatdown.
For Tuesday’s game, the Nationals will be sending out Patrick Corbin in the start. Over his 80.1 innings and 5-4 record this year, Corbin has a 3.59 ERA with 89 Ks and 27 BBs.
Washington had 16 hits in the victory on Monday. Adam Eaton and Tre turner had three knocks apiece, with a combined three runs and three RBI.
Over on the White Sox’ side, they’re going with Manny Banuelos for the start Tuesday. Across 40.1 innings and a 3-4 record so far, Banuelos has a 7.36 ERA with 39 Ks and 25 BBs.
The Sox couldn’t get the bats going in the Monday game, notching just four hits. Two of those belonged to James McCann, and Leury Garcia put up a solo homer.
The Nationals are 4-1 in their last five in game two of a series and 4-0 in Corbin’s last four starts in game two of a series. Washington is 4-1 in Corbin’s last five starts with four days’ rest and the over is 2-0-2 in Washington’s last four Tuesday games.
Meanwhile, the White Sox are 15-39 in the last 54 Tuesday games and 1-4 in Banuelos’ last five starts. Chicago is 1-4 in Banuelos’ last five starts on grass and the under is 6-0 in their last six in game two of a series.
Corbin has had a couple of rough appearances since his complete-game shutout May 25. In that pair, he’s given up nine earned in 7.2 innings on 16 hits and has lost both starts.
As for Banuelos, he took a step forward with three earned in 5.1 innings his last time up, but in the four starts prior to that he coughed up a whopping 24 combined earned runs.
I’m not confident Banuelos has it back together at this point, so I have to go Nats here.
