Kansas City Royals vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
The White Sox had a little trouble with the Royals the last time they faced each other. I do not see that happening 2 series in a row.
Chicago is the better team and they have really done a good job at home against left handed pitching. I look for that trend to continue on Tuesday.
The White Sox have the pitching advantage with Cease on the mound. I look for him to continue his good pitching and for the Sox to hit around Bubic.
I will lay the run line with the Sox here.
