Cincinnati Reds vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
Even though the White Sox have already clinched their division, I do not see them just letting up in these games. I look for them to come out strong in this one.
Chicago is the better team and I feel they will show that in this one. I do not have much confidence backing the Reds here. Also, Chicago has been very good in these interleague games.
I look for Carlos Rodon to go longer in this start and for him to be effective. I feel the Sox can do enough against Sonny Gray to get a win.
Give me the White Sox here.
