The White Sox look to be one of the main contenders to win the World Series here in 2021, but they are coming off of getting swept in a 4 game series against the Astros, so they come into this game with plenty to prove.
The Pirates on the other hand will look to defend home turf, as they send Tyler Anderson to the mound who has been decent so far this year and who is very capable of putting together a quality start to put the Pirates in a position to pick up a huge home win.
Chicago White Sox
This Chicago White Sox has been elite with the bat for most of the year with these guys hitting at a solid .250 clip and have already tallied 349 total runs which puts them in 8th place overall in the major leagues.
Be on the lookout for Time Anderson here who is hitting close to .300 and is an absolute nightmare for opposing pitchers when he gets on base, as he already has 13 stolen bases on the season and it is likely he ends the season with plenty more then 13.
Lucas Giolito will head to the mound for the White Sox this Tuesday and he will be looking to go deep in this one, as his ERA is just a little under 4 and he gets an A+ matchup against this struggling Pirates batting lineup.
The Pirates have actually shown some life in their last series against the Cleveland Indians, as they were able to pick up a rare series win and that came off of the back of 10 straight losses, so although it is tough to see the Pirates competing with the White Sox on paper here, the home side have shown the ability to spring the odd upset.
Brian Reynolds and Adam Frazier have essentially held this batting order together with both of these guys hitting around .300, but other then those two I would keep an eye out for Ke’Bryan Hayes who has not been able to play much this year due to injury, but when he is out there he can look electric.

Free Chicago White Sox vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
Lucas Giolito has not been amazing this year, but I do like his chances of going deep here as this represents the perfect ”get-right” spot for him. On the other side of things I could certainly see Anderson going deep as well given the fact he was great last time out against the Nationals if you scratch out a disastrous first inning.
This total at 7.5 is certainly at a level where it is respecting both of these pitchers, but I still see this game ending below this total given the pitching matchups and the current state of both of these batting units.
