Chicago White Sox
Today’s interleague finale sees Chicago gunning for another upset victory vs. the Philadelphia Phillies. The White Sox stunned Philadelphia Friday after 15 hard fought innings to secure a series-opening win, 4-3. That victory was Chicago’s third since July 22: the Sox are 3-10 in their last thirteen with offensive futility a hallmark of those defeats.
Hoping for more good fortune, the Sox start Reynaldo Lopez this afternoon. Lopez (5-9, 5.43 ERA) has given up fourteen runs in his last five starts, not terrible, but Chicago is 1-4 over that stretch.
Anytime a team scores just 20 runs in ten games while losing nine-of-twelve, even if they own a recent victory over their opponent, natural skepticism concerning that team abounds.
Falling hard from the AL Wildcard race, Chicago is a long-shot today despite their modest odds.
With Friday’s loss, Philadelphia now trails division-rival Washington by one game for the final NL Wildcard spot.
Winners in six of thier last ten, the Phillies made fringe moves at the deadline to shore up their pitching staff. One of those acquisitions, Drew Smyly (2-5, 6.85 ERA) starts this afternoon.
Roughing it this year, Smyly has nonetheless added value since joining the Phills. Over his last two starts the lefty has allowed just one run in thirteen innings and Philadelphia has won both games.
Almost needless to state, but worth pointing out is that the Phillies must beat rebuilding, prone teams like Chicago if they hope to remain among this year’s thinning playoff hopefuls.
