Blue Jays foiled again
The Blue Jays were unable to win back-to-back games on Saturday, as they gave up five runs late to lose 9-5 to the White Sox. Toronto is now 47-56 overall and 20-28 on the road. Toronto is putting up 4.50 runs per game this season while allowing 4.99 per contest.
The Blue Jays have Ryan Borucki taking the mound for them tonight. He has started five games this season and has an 0-2 record with a 2.79 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP. Over 29.0 innings of work, Borucki has 23 strikeouts with 10 walks.
White Sox end skid
The White Sox ended their three-game win streak on Saturday with the come-from-behind victory over the Jays. Chicago is now 37-67 overall and 20-30 at home. The Sox are putting up just 4.05 runs per game this year while allowing 5.43 per contest.
Carlos Rodon gets the start for the White Sox this evening. Rodon has started eight games this season and has a 3-3 record with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. Rodon has pitched a total of 50.2 innings this season and has 43 strikeouts with 20 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Blue Jays have lost 14 of their last 16 road games against a left-handed starter and six of their last seven against AL Central opponents.
The White Sox have won six of Rodon’s last eight home starts and four of his last five Sunday starts.
This should be a pretty good pitching battle as each starter has been pretty good in limited starts. I think the difference in the game will be Toronto’s struggles with left-handed pitching. They have not been successful against it for a big part of the year. Rodon should be able to work well past them while I see Chicago getting to the Toronto bullpen in the later stages of the game.
The Pick: Chicago White Sox -115
