A pair of quality pitchers square off in Baltimore on Sunday as Chris Sale and the White Sox take on Ubaldo Jimenez and the Orioles. Sale has been phenomenal this season, but the Orioles boast the best record in the big leagues.
Which side will give in this exciting Sunday afternoon tilt?
Chicago White Sox
Whenever Chris Sale takes the mound, the White Sox have to feel confident about leaving with a win.
Sale has won his first five starts this season and has an ERA of 1.66 to go along with a WHIP of just 0.68. Sale is arguably the best pitcher in the American League and is a huge part of Chicago’s early success.
Chicago is still struggling offensively as the Sox come into this game 23rd in OBP, 23rd in slugging percentage and 21st in OPS. Todd Frazier and Adam Eaton are leading the team offensively, but it’s tough to find much offense outside of those two guys.
Ubaldo Jimenez will take the mound for the first-place Orioles as he looks to improve from his previous start where he allowed three earned runs on six hits against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Jimenez has struggled with his control this season, walking 11 batters over his last three starts. The lack of control has also contributed to Jimenez’s WHIP of 1.57.
Baltimore possesses a top-10 offense and is 4th in the majors with 32 home runs. Manny Machado leads the club with seven dingers, and Mark Trumbo leads the O’s with a .341 average and 18 RBI.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- White Sox are 10-5 on the road.
- White Sox are 13-6 vs. RHP.
- White Sox are 5-0 in Chris Sale’s starts.
- Orioles are 9-1 at home.
- Orioles are 5-1 vs. LHP.
Free Chicago White Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
The Orioles have fared well against left-handed pitchers this year, but they haven’t seen a left-handed pitcher like Chicago’s Chris Sale. Sale is 3-0 on the road and has gone at least seven innings in every one of his starts.
He’s averaging nearly eight strikeouts per road start and I think the Sox will be able to capitalize on a few Ubaldo Jimenez mistakes.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Chicago ML
It’s impossible to bet against Chris Sale, especially with a price of -130. That number would be much higher if the Sox weren’t playing in Baltimore, and the Orioles have proven to be the best home team in the majors.
Still, Sale is the hottest pitcher in the American League and I think the Sox will come away with the win.
