The White Sox have won the first 2 games of this series and they have won both by 1 run. However, they are the betting underdog tonight mainly because the A’s trot out their staff Ace in Sonny Gray.
Gray missed the season opener with food poisoning and he was pushed back to this start.
In yesterday’s game the White Sox beat the A’s 4-3.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox have had the A’s number winning 9 of their last 11 facing them and they have won 6 in a row facing them in Oakland.
The White go with Carlos Rodon in this game and while he is the # 3 starter for the team he has the stuff to be an Ace. In his rookie season last year he went 9-6 with an ERA of 3.75 in 23 starts.
In the last 8 starts last season Rodon was en fuego going 5-2 with an ERA of only 1.81. He only has 1 career start against the A’s and while he was not sharp, giving up 5 runs and 6 walks in 4 innings of work, the offense bailed him out in a 7-6 win and he did not get a decision.
The White Sox have won 6 of their last 8 road games with Rodon on the hill.
The A’s have scored 7 runs combined in the first 2 games of this series.
Oakland has not began the season 0-3 since 1996 and Chicago has not started 3-0 since 1992.
Gray is the Oakland staff Ace and last season he was 14-7 with an ERA of 2.73, which was the 3rd lowest in the AL. He has not had much success against the White Sox going 0-0 with a less than impressive ERA of 8.10 in 2 starts facing them, but both games were in Chicago.
While the A’s are only 2-6 in Gray’s last 8 starts they are 5-2 in their last 7 games with him getting the call at home.
The A’s have lost both games in this series by 1 run and that was their M.O. last season when they were only 19-35 in 10-run games.
