The White Sox look to bounce back from a loss Tuesday when they play host to the Detroit Tigers.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox had a four game winning streak snapped on Tuesday with an unexpected loss to the Tigers. The Sox were -140 on the runline but came out flat, falling 5-2. They were shut down by Jose Urena, who went seven innings and allowed just one earned run.
Chicago still enters Wednesday as the second best team in the AL Central. They are currently 1.5 games out of first place to the Kansas City Royals
Chicago will send out Carlos Rodon to the hill Wednesday. After a disappointing 2020, Rodon has a 3-0 record this year to go along with a 0.47 ERA and a 0.68 WHIP in three starts this year. He also threw a no-hitter against the Indians.
While Rodon has been exceptional, regression should be expected from here on out for the southpaw. The 28-year-old has left 95 percent of his baserunners stranded and had to work round five walks in five innings the last time he pitched. His numbers are not sustainable.
The White Sox scored just two runs Tuesday but still have a powerful lineup. Rookie Yermin Mercedes is leading the majors in average and is slugging the ball over the park. Him and Jose Abreu have combined for nine home runs this year while outfielder Adam Eaton leads the bunch with 18 RBI’s.
The Tigers look for back-to-back wins to start the series and will go to Casey Mize to try and get it done on the mound. Mize has been sporadic to start the year. He started off well but has since struggled, allowing 11 runs over his last two starts. The 23-year-old allowed six runs in 4 2/3 innings the last time he pitched.
The Tigers offense got a bit of a surge yesterday, but they’ve still struggled . They managed six hits in the win on Tuesday and saw their heart of the order come to life. Miguel Cabrera and Jonathan Schoop both hit home runs for the Tigers, while Niko Goodrum also went yard and had 2 RBI’s.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Tigers are 27-68 in their last 95 during game 2 of a series.
- Tigers are 24-62 in their last 86 road games.
- Tigers are 48-132 in their last 180 games as an underdog.
Free Chicago White Sox vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
I do think Rodon is due for progression, but its hard to faith in the Tigers lineup. Mize has been hit or miss throughout the season, and I feel this game could be an ugly display of pitching. Mize has done fairly well against the Sox in his career, but I still think the Sox find a way to get it done here.
I also don’t trust this Tigers lineup.
