Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox failed to close the Oakland Athletics out on Wednesday in a 5–3 loss that forced a winner-take-all Game 3.
Dallas Keuchel, good as he was during the regular season, wasn’t sharp early and the A’s, behind Chris Bassit, leveled the series.
But Chicago didn’t go quietly. Bassit was still in the Game in the eighth inning of a 5–0 game. Then the Sox made it interesting against Oakland’s bullpen.
Bob Melvin went with the closer, Liam Hendriks, in the eighth inning. Chicago scored twice and then a third time in the ninth before Jose Abreu grounded sharply to the second baseman.
Hendriks’ struggles may give Melvin and his staff headaches in Thursday’s Game 3.
Oakland’s closer was terrific in the regular season but lacked command on Wednesday evening. He also threw a ton of pitches and may not be available on Thursday due to pitch count alone.
Neither team has announced a starting pitcher for this game yet but the A’s will have the more experienced pitcher, whether it be Mike Fiers or Sean Manaea.
The White Sox will likely decide between Dylan Cease and Dane Dunning. Neither has played in a postseason before.

Free Chicago White Sox vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction: experience wins out.
Lots of bettors like the White Sox in this spot and for some good reason. Chicago has looked the more feisty team in this series.
But the White Sox are top-heavy in the pitching staff and Oakland’s strength lies in its depth. Given Oakland’s experience edge and the home field, I like the A’s to advance.
