Chicago White Sox
Tampa Bay got three runs in the third inning to take a 3-1 lead and win by that same score.
Both teams combined for just 10 hits in a game seven pitchers were used. Mike Pelfrey got the Sox into the sixth inning before giving way to Dan Jennings, who pitched two shutout inning from there.
Derek Holland has allowed less than a hit per inning in 11 starts this season but walks are hurting him. He’s walked 26 compared to 54 strikeouts. Eleven home runs is also less than idea.
But Holland has thrown at least six innings in eight of those starts and has a 3.43 ERA and the White Sox have to be happy with that.
Tampa Bay Rays
Jake Odorizzi had a rare rough outing in Seattle over the weekend. Odorizzi gave up eight runs, though only three of them were earned, in 2.1 innings. He gave up four hits and walked three.
This is coming from a man who rarely deviates very far from six innings, three runs.
The errors played a big role in that performance and Tampa Bay’s defense has been very good this season, as expected. We can’t expect something like that again so let’s throw that last start out.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Over is 7-1-1 in Hollands last 9 starts overall.
- Under is 9-3 in TB last 12 games as a favorite.
- Over is 6-2 in TB last 8 overall.
- TB are 9-4 in their last 13 Thu. games.
Free Chicago White Sox vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction: Odorizzi gets back to it and pitches the Rays to a win.
I do expect a Tampa win but I have the Rays -115. The rubber match should be more competitive than Vegas thinks.
