White Sox bounce back
The White Sox bounced back from Thursday’s loss by picking up a 6-3 victory on Friday night. Chicago is now 49-79 overall and 24-39 on the road. The Sox are putting up 4.14 runs per game this year while allowing 5.32 per contest.
Lucas Giolito takes the mound for the White Sox this evening. He is making his 26th start of the season tonight. Giolito has a 9-9 record with a 6.08 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. He has 97 strikeouts and 74 walks over 137.2 innings.
Tigers fall again
The Tigers failed to win back-to-back games once again on Friday. They have alternated wins and losses over their last seven. Detroit is now 53-76 overall and 34-32 at home. The Tigers are scoring only 3.86 runs per game this year while allowing 4.70 per contest.
Ryan Carpenter gets the start for the Tigers tonight. He has made four starts this year for Detroit and has a 1-1 record with a 6.00 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP. He has 10 strikeouts and three walks over 18.0 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox have won Giolito’s last four road starts but they are just 3-9 in their last 12 Saturday games.
The Tigers are just 2-6 in their last 8 division games, but 7-3 in their last 10 home games against right-handed starters.
Giolito hasn’t had a great season, but he is actually much better on the road than he is at home. He has been able to get at least six innings in six of his last eight starts. The Tigers can’t count on much from Carpenter, as he is making short starts. I don’t trust the Detroit bullpen to lock up the Sox in this one.
The Pick: Chicago White Sox -105
