The Phillies are taking on the White Sox in Chicago for another game in U.S. Cellular Field. The Phillies have lost four of their last six games.
The White Sox have won three of their last five games.
Getting the start for the Phillies is Jerad Eickhoff, he’s 8-12 with a 3.91 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. James Shields is on the rubber for the Sox, he’s 3-8 with a 7.62 ERA and 1.82 WHIP.
The Phillies aren’t the best offensive team in the league, in fact they are one of the worst.
They were just shutout in their last game and scored only 14 runs over their last five games.
So they don’t score much but how about their pitching and defense?
Well that is poor as well but they have one of their better pitchers on the mound for this game.
Eickhoff is pretty good but is often not enough for the Phillies because he doesn’t get run support.
He’s also been not so good lately, giving up 12 runs over his last three starts.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox have hovered around .500 all season and that’s no surprise. Their team has potential to win but aren’t a ball club that stands out as dominant in any regard.
They’ve scored 10 runs over their last two games but scored just four runs in their two games prior to that.
They average just four runs per game on the season so don’t ever expect much from them any given game.
James Shields looked like he found his groove again after coming to the White Sox but he’s fallen apart once again.
He’s given up 28 runs in his last four starts! He’s last just 14 innings in total in those four starts.
That is absolutely atrocious in MLB standards so he better turn things around in his one against the Phillies, they are the right team to bounce back against.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
This game is a battle of struggling pitchers, so expect the offense to explode despite both teams not being offensively savvy.
These are still Major League Baseball players and they have to get their hits somewhere.
It looks to me like the Phillies will take this one because Shields just looks DOA.

This one is an over without a doubt. Both pitchers stink right now so unless they turn it around, trends tell me it’s over.
