White Sox grab another
The White Sox have won the last two games in this series after dropping Thursday’s opener. Chicago picked up a 6-1 win on Saturday. Chicago is now 50-79 overall and 25-39 on the road. The Sox are putting up 4.14 runs per game this year while allowing 5.32 per contest.
Michael Kopech makes his second start of his MLB career today. He debuted earlier this week and pitched two scoreless innings against the Twins before a rain delay occurred. Kopech allowed just three hits with no walks and four strikeouts.
Tigers drop another
The Tigers suffered back-to-back losses for the first time this week with the 6-1 loss on Saturday. Detroit is now 53-77 overall and 34-33 at home. The Tigers are scoring only 3.86 runs per game this year while allowing 4.70 per contest.
Jordan Zimmerman will start for the Tigers this afternoon. He is making his 19th start of the season and has a 6-5 record with a 4.18 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. Zimmerman has 83 strikeouts and 17 walks over 94.2 innings on the mound.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox have won five of their last six road games and eight of their last 11 against AL Central opponents.
The Tigers have lost seven of their last nine division games and five of Zimmerman’s last seven starts.
Kopech looked pretty good in his debut before rain put an early end to his start. I think he can continue that impressive display against the Tigers today. Detroit has been quiet at the plate the last two days and Chicago has had a lot more pop in their bats. Zimmerman isn’t a real shutdown pitcher. He gave up six runs to the Sox at home 11 days ago.
The Pick: Chicago White Sox -115
