This interleague matchups includes two teams that have been struggling lately, but one worse than the other.
The Atlanta Braves could honestly be eliminated from playoff contention now and no one would bat an eye.
The Chicago White Sox had a hot start, but did not have a good June to continue their season.
The Atlanta Braves lineup has been very inconsistent this season. They are led by most hitting statistics by Freddie Freeman.
Freeman is hitting .286 on the year with 14 home runs and 43 runs batted in. Nick Markakis has hit a team high 22 doubles to go along with a .255 batting average and 43 RBIs.
Jeff Francoeur is hitting .261 on the year with 10 doubles; he has also knocked in 18 runs this season.
The Braves lineup will have their hands full with Chris Sale on the mound.
The Braves have Matt Wisler on the mound to face the Sox. Wisler is currently 3-8 on the year with a 4.16 E.R.A. and 76 strikeouts.
He was last in action against the Miami Marlins in a loss. Wisler threw in 6 innings where he only gave up 3 earned runs, but still took the loss.
He also struck out 6 batters and walked 1. Wisler looks to get some run support that he does deserve.
Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox lineup has been up and down for most of this season. They are led by Melky Cabrera so far.
Cabrera is hitting .293 on the year with 28 extra base hits and has knocked in 39 runs. Adam Eaton has been hitting well out of the top of the lineup, he is hitting .274.
Eaton also has 7 triples so far and has 27 RBIs. Todd Frazier was a big pickup for this Sox this offseason.
Although Frazier is only hitting .211, he has team high 23 dingers to go with 52 RBIs right before the break. The White Sox look to get rolling against a struggling Braves lineup.
The White Sox have their ace Chris Sale on the mound. Sale is having a CY Young caliber year with a 14-2 record and a 2.93 E.R.A to go with 118 strikeouts.
Sale got hit around in his last start against the Houston Astros, but still pulled out a victory. Sale gave up 4 earned runs on 6 hits in 7 innings of work.
The lefty struck out 9 and only walked 1 in the win. He looks to continue this small winning streak that he has.

Free Atlanta Braves vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
I’m taking the White Sox here for obvious reasons. Sale struggled a little towards the middle of the first half. But he has been a stud lately on the bump.
Look for him to keep up his stuff against this bad Braves lineup on Friday. The White Sox lineup will be able to hit well off of Wisler as his stuff is not the greatest.
