White Sox edged
The White Sox held a lead on Saturday, but couldn’t hold on in a 6-5 loss to the Angels in Los Angeles. The White Sox are 55-67 on the season, 25-36 on the road and 62-56 with the under. Chicago has Dylan Cease on the mound today. He is 2-5 on the season with a 5.54 ERA.
The White Sox put up four runs in the third inning on Saturday and held a 5-2 lead for a while, only to see it fall apart late. Evan Marshall took the loss by allowing two unearned runs in the seventh. He is 3-2 on the year. Hector Santiago pitched 4.2 innings in his start and allowed two runs on four hits. At the plate, Eloy Jiminez had a two-run home run for the Sox while James McCann also drove in two runs.
Angels rally for win
Los Angeles put up four runs in the seventh inning to pick up the win over the White Sox on Saturday. Los Angeles is 61-64 overall, 32-31 at home and 62-56 with the over. The Angels have Griffin Canning on the mound this afternoon. He is 4-6 on the year with a 4.86 ERA.
Mike Trout drove in a pair of runs in Saturday’s win and was part of the four-run rally in the seventh to lead the Angles to a win. He has 96 RBI on the year. Brian Goodwin also drove in a pair of runs as well in the victory. Noe Ramirez lasted just 1.1 innings in his start and took a no-decision. Taylor Cole improved to 3-4 on the year by pitching 1.2 scoreless innings of relief while Hansel Robles had a perfect ninth to get his 18th save of the year.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox have won six of their last seven games following a loss but are just 6-21 in their last 27 games against a right-handed starter.
The Angels are just 5-11 in their last 16 overall and 2-5 in their last seven following a win.
Cease has been competitive on the mound as of late despite a poor ERA on the season. Canning has been similar, but doesn’t last terribly long on the mound. He has been more competitive at home, posting a 4.53 ERA. Cease hasn’t had a lot of great outings to rely on this year and I don’t know that he can count on a lot of run support today. In this pitching matchup, I like the Angels hitters to come through at home.
