Things have gone according in the White Sox-Athletics series to start the season off.
Chicago has taken the first two games as these teams will meet Wednesday night and then here Thursday afternoon to close this series out.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox saw their 2 big offseason acquisitions make an impact already this season. Todd Frazier jacked a 3 run home run while Austin Jackson added an RBI single in the 2nd win of the season for Chicago.
Chicago’s back to back wins to open the season come as no surprise as they have dominated the head to head portion of this series. Over the past 18 meetings, the White Sox have grabbed 13 wins against Oakland.
Chicago will turn to Mat Latos here in the series finale. Last year Latos spent time with both LA teams and the Marlins. In total he finished with 24 appearances and 21 starts.
The Athletics know this season is going to be tough on them and so far it’s gone according to plan. The season got off to a very ominous start as Sonny Gray was scratched and pushed back to Wednesday with food poisoning.
Oakland released more bad news on Wednesday morning as Sonny Gray may have passed on his illness to Kendall Graveman, Thursday’s starter now.
Still scheduled to go as of now, Graveman comes in off a season that saw him go just 6-9 in 21 starts. In those 21 starts, Graveman racked up an ERA of 4.05. This will mark just the 2nd full season that Graveman will be playing in, in the MLB. He did make 5 brief appearances for Toronto in 2014.

Free Chicago White Sox vs. Oakland A’s MLB Prediction:
Tough to call this one with Graveman being sick as of right now.
Latos is a solid vet to have around and with him facing a rather weak lineup, he should be able to handle them here.

The Athletics offense just doesn’t have enough as Latos gets a quality start out of his first go round in 2016.
