Free Chicago White Sox vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
This inter-divisional matchup will start off with another great pitching matchup Saturday between Triston McKenzie and Lance Lynn. McKenzie has struck out 23 batters through 16 innings while Lynn has struck out 27 through 19 innings.
These teams haven’t played the first game yet so I’m unsure of how that game panned out but I predicted Cleveland to win due to Bieber’s pitching edge over Keuchel.
I think the game leans in Lynn’s favor in this one so I’m taking Chicago to bounce back in game 2.
