Free Baseball Predictions: Chicago White Sox vs. N.Y. Yankees Preview

White Sox vs Yankees MLB Betting + Handicapping Picks

The White Sox arrived at Yankees’ Stadium on Thursday, winners of five of their last seven, but it was still a shocker when they rallied back from three runs down in the top of the ninth on a Dayan Viciedo three-run homer off David Robertson, ending the team’s string of six straight losses to the their New York nemesis.  

The Yankees also saw their five-game winning streak snapped – not to mention wasting a great start by Ivan Nova – as they lost for only the sixth time in 25 games this month.

Now they will aim to maintain their cushion over Baltimore in the American League East when they take on Chicago in Game 3 of a four-game series on Saturday afternoon.

CHW: Jake Peavy (6-4, 2.84 ERA) v NYY: Hiroki Kuroda (7-7, 3.40 ERA)
Date/Time: Saturday, June 30, 2012, 1:05 PM ET
Venue: Yankees Stadium, the Bronx New York
Broadcast: MLB (Regional), CSN (Chicago), YES (New York)
Line: OFF
Over/Under: OFF

Matchup | Preview

The White Sox, meanwhile, remained a pair of games ahead of Cleveland atop the AL Central, largely because of its success away from home. And after Thursday’s Game 1 win, Chicago is tied with the Yankees for the fewest road losses (14) in the majors.

Up next in the rotation, and looking to keep that trend alive for Chicago is veteran Jake Peavy, who got roughed up a bit in his 15th start of the year on Monday, but was still able to keep his team in the game by holding the Twins to just three runs.

It wouldn’t be enough, though, as the 31-year old righty dropped his third straight start despite allowing a grand total of five earned runs over that stretch (22 innings), as the Sox fell at Minnesota in a 4-1 defeat.

Peavy is now 3-2 with a 2.30 ERA in seven road starts this season, but if he continues to pitch the way he has been, the wins should start to pile up, soon.

The only thing standing in his way in this one will be a power-hitting Yankees lineup that is ranked No. 1 in the league with 118 home runs. 


But not all is rosy for the Yankees, as they are hampered by an injury-plagued rotation, and will give Hiroki Kuroda the ball for this matinee matchup.

The 37-year old right-hander extended his recent hot stretch, offering up just a single run and five hits over seven innings, while earning his seventh win during Monday’s 7-1 win over Cleveland.

He is now 4-1 with a 1.93 ERA in his last six starts while working at least seven innings in five of those outings, all while surrendering just one homer over his last four starts.

Kuroda is 4-3 with a 3.15 ERA and 32 strikeouts at home, so the White Sox’s 7th ranked lineup will have their work cut out for them.

Matt’s Free Prediction: White Sox- Peavy has been sensational except in few starts, while Kuroda has been pitching lights out. However, I look for Kuroda to implode eventually, so I’ll back Peavy and hope he gets some help from the Sox bats in this one.
