White Sox drop opener
The White Sox suffered an 11-3 loss at Texas on Friday for its second consecutive loss. Chicago now has a 28-53 record overall and a 12-26 road record. The Sox are putting up 3.85 runs per game this season while allowing 5.15 runs per contest.
Carlos Rodon gets the start for Chicago this evening. He has pitched in four games this year and has a 1-2 record with a 3.70 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. Rodon has pitched a total of 24.1 innings and has 19 strikeouts with seven walks.
Rangers roll up the runs
The Rangers piled up 11 runs on Friday in the series opener. They have won three of their last four games, scoring 23 runs in the three games. Texas is now 37-46 overall and 18-25 at home. The Rangers are scoring 4.46 runs per game this season while allowing 5.06 per contest.
Bartolo Colon gets the start for the Rangers this evening. He has started 14 games this year and has a 4-5 record with a 4.72 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. Colon has pitched a total of 87.2 innings and has 54 strikeouts with 13 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox have lost eight of their last 10 following a loss and they have dropped Rodon’s last six road starts.
The Rangers have won six of their last seven against AL Central opponents. They also have won five of their last six home games against a left-handed starter.
The Rangers are in a nice upswing, hitting the ball pretty well while pitching respectable as well. Rodon has good numbers through limited starts, but I don’t see Chicago being able to carry a lot of good play on the road. They have been a mess away from home all year and I think Texas should continue to play well.
The Pick: Texas Rangers -120
