White Sox earn shutout
Dylan Covey pitched a gem for Chicago on Saturday and led the White Sox to a 5-0 win at Seattle on Saturday. They are 15-34 on the road this season with a 34-63 overall record. The White Sox are putting up 4.02 runs per game this season while allowing 5.29 per contest.
Reynaldo Lopez will take the mound for the White Sox this afternoon. He is making his 20th start of the season today and comes in with a 4-7 record and a 3.91 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. Lopez has pitched a total of 112.2 innings this year and has 82 strikeouts with 47 walks.
Mariners in a funk
The Mariners have usually been consistent at beating up on bad teams but lost 5-0 on Saturday for their fifth loss in six games. Seattle is now 59-40 overall and 32-18 at home. The Mariners are putting up 4.19 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.24 per contest.
Marco Gonzales will get the start for the Mariners on Sunday. He is also making his 20th start of the season and he has a 10-5 record with a 3.41 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP. Gonzales has pitched 113.1 innings this year and has 22 walks with 98 strikeouts.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox have lost seven of Lopez’ last 10 starts overall and six of his last eight starts on the road.
The Mariners have won Gonzales’ last five home starts and eight of his last 10 starts overall.
Gonzales has been on a nice run for Seattle lately. He has allowed just two runs over his last three starts, a total of 22 innings. He faces a Chicago team that has been struggling on the road all year and I don’t think Lopez is going to be able to match Gonzales. Lopez has given Chicago some good efforts, but he still has a relatively high walk total and doesn’t get much run support.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -210
