White Sox snap losing streak
The White Sox ended a 7-game losing streak on Monday with a 10-4 victory at home. Chicago is now 5-14 overall and 2-8 at home. Chicago is now averaging 3.89 runs per game while allowing 6.53 per contest.
Chris Volstad gets the start today, his first of the season. He has appeared in four games this year as a reliever and has pitched 7.2 innings. Volstad has a 4.70 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. He has seven strikeouts with three walks.
Seattle pitching struggling
The Mariners have lost back-to-back games following Monday’s loss and they have allowed at least seven runs in their last three games. Seattle is now 11-10 overall and 6-5 on the road. The Mariners are putting up 4.33 runs per game this season while allowing 5.19 per contest.
Marco Gonzales gets the start for the Mariners tonight. He is 1-2 through four starts with a 5.94 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP. Over 16.2 innings of work, Gonzales has 19 strikeouts with just three walks, but has allowed 11 earned runs.
MLB Betting Trends
Seattle has won four of its last five Game 2’s in a series. However, they are just 1-4 in their last five games against a right-handed starter.
The White Sox are 1-6 in their last seven against AL West opponents and 7-21 in their last 28 Tuesday games.
Chicago got the win on Monday, but I still need to see more from them before I expect them to win consistently. I am not sure what you can expect from Volstad on the mound, as he is making his first start this year. I am not sure he can get deep into the game and the Chicago bullpen is a mess.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -140
