Chicago White Sox
The White Sox ran into Justin Verlander in peak form on Tuesday night and managed just one hit and a run, both coming on the same swing by Jose Abreu.
Verlander struck out twelve and walked just one to win for the eighth time this season. Houston pitchers faced just three batters over the minimum in a 5–1 win.
The former first round pick Lucas Giolito is starting to look like it this season for Chicago. He has won three starts in a row, including the last one, a rain-shortened victory over Toronto, in which he got credit for a five-inning complete game.
Giolito has gone 19.1 innings over his last three outings and given up just two runs, striking out twenty, and walking six. He’s K’ing over ten per nine innings on the season.
So we cashed the under on Tuesday. Houston didn’t need many runs to support Verlander and it got all it needed from Michael Brantley, who has been a godsend for the Astros, who really didn’t need it.
Brantley drove in two with a single swing and Carlos Correa and Yuli Gurriel each brought in one. “Dr. Smooth,” as they call Brantley, leads the American League with sixty-one hits and has put up a 150 OPS+ in the first quarter of the year. He’s on board two two years at $32 million.
George Springer did not play on Tuesday, as I expected. He’s got a stiff back and the Astros won’t rush him back, especially because it’s been a bit of a recurring thing for Springer. Both he and Jose Altuve are out but neither should be out for much longer. Springer could be back any game now and Altuve is expected sometime in early June.
