Chicago White Sox vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
This is a series between 2 teams going in different directions. There is no excuse for the Chi Sox to lose this game.
Chicago is the better team and I feel they will show that in this one. I do not give the Royals much of a chance in this one.
I look for Lopez to keep up his good pitching and for the Sox to do enough against Lynch to get a win. The White Sox have been very good this year when going against left handed pitchers.
I will play Chicago straight up.
