Chicago White Sox
The White Sox have had an impressive season thus far and they are poised to make another postseason run. In their last 6 games, they are 3-3.
Their record is 51-35 and they are 1st in the American League Central. They are 8 games ahead of the Indians.
This team just took 2 out of 3 against the Twins. They won 6-1 on Wednesday.
Lance Lynn went 6 innings and allowed 1 earned run on Wednesday.
Dallas Keuchel has a good record, but his ERA is not where he would like it to be. It currently sits at 4.43. His last start was on Saturday against the Tigers where he went 4 innings and allowed 7 earned runs. The Tigers won this game 11-5.
Despite having some struggles lately, the pitching has been good for this team. They have an ERA of 3.62 which is 9th best in the game.
They have also been impressive on offense. They are scoring 4.99 runs per game which is 5th best in the game.
Tim Anderson, Yoan Moncada, and Jose Abreu are some key bats in their lineup. Yermin Mercedes, who started off the season scorching, has been sent down due to lack of production at the plate.
This club has hit 86 home runs which is 24th best.
The Orioles are having another wretched year, but I cannot say I am surprised. They have lost 4 of their last 5 games.
They are 28-58 which puts them last in the American League East. The Red Sox are 25 games ahead of them.
They have split the first 2 games against the Blue Jays. Toronto won 10-2 on Wednesday.
Matt Harvey went 3.2 innings and gave up 6 earned runs on Wednesday.
Jorge Lopez has been very bad this year. The right hander is 2-11 with an ERA north of 6. His last start was against the Angels on Saturday where he went 4.2 innings and allowed 4 earned runs. The Angels won this game 4-1.
The main reason why the Orioles are as bad as they are is because of their pitching. They have a 5.53 ERA which is the worst in baseball.
For the most part, the offense has not been the issue. They are scoring 4.13 runs per game which is 24th best.
Baltimore has hit 98 home runs which is 19th best in baseball.

Chicago White Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
This game features 2 teams that are going in completely opposite directions. I feel good with the White Sox to take care of business in this one.
Chicago is the much better team and I look for them to show that on Friday. If they are on their game, they should be able to take care of Baltimore.
Dallas Keuchel is the better pitcher. He may get hit around a bit, but I think the Chicago offense will be able to do enough to get a win.
I will lay the $1.32 with the White Sox in this one.
