It was a bleak start for Mengden who walked away with the no-decison as his team would eventually pull ahead of the Los Angeles Angels to win 6-5. He went 5.2 innings giving up six hits, four earned runs, and two home runs while he struck out two and walked three.
In 15 starts, Mengden owns a low strikeout (5.48 K/9) rate, but has also kept the free bases low (1.83 BB/9). His proneness to the long ball (1.42 HR/9) and his inability to stand base runners (69.2% LOB%) have led to a mediocre 4.06 ERA and an even higher 4.57 FIP.
Oakland has been playing winning baseball in the past week as they have won four of their five contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .253/.338/.489 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 29 RBI.
Chicago White Sox
Covey was roughed up a bit in his last outing as he was tagged with his second loss of the season against the Cleveland Indians in a 2-6 loss. He went five innings giving up six hits, four earned runs, and one home run while striking out two and walking five.
In seven starts, Covey owns an okay strikeout (7.81 K/9) to walk (3.57 BB/9) rate, while he has done an exceptional job containing the long ball (0.22 HR/9). The end result has been a pleasant 2.90 ERA and a matching 2.94 FIP, all the while he owns a unlucky .325 BABIP.
Chicago has been in miserable form in the past week as they have gone winless in their six contests. During that span their lineup is only slashing .219/.267/.308 to go with 11 extra-base hits and 14 RBI.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction: Chicago edges out Oakland at home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: White Sox +120
Mengden owns a 5.18 ERA on the road to go with a slash line of .277/.314/.541. He also owns a 10.05 ERA in the month of June to go with a miserable slash line of .322/.429/.797. I like what I’ve seen from Covey thus far and I expect him to outduel Mengden at home, while Chicago’s lineup provides him with enough runs to give him his fourth win in eight starts.
