The Chicago White Sox and Cleveland Indians meet Tuesday in MLB action at Progressive Field.
The Chicago White Sox need a win after losing four of their last six games. The White Sox have scored 12 runs in their three games and four or more runs in five of their last nine games. The White Sox have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs. Jose Abreu leads the White Sox with 73 hits and 55 RBI while Tim Anderson and Eloy Jimenez have combined for 125 hits and 62 RBI. Reynaldo Lopez gets the ball, and he is 1-2 with a 5.40 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. Lopez is 2-3 with a 4.29 ERA and 29 strikeouts in his career against the Indians.
The Cleveland Indians look for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Indians have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Indians have split their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Cesar Hernandez leads the Indians with 59 hits and 15 RBI while Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez have combined for 116 hits and 67 RBI. Shane Bieber gets the ball, and he is 8-1 with a 1.74 ERA and 112 strikeouts this season. Bieber is 2-2 with a 3.27 ERA and 53 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 5-0 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series, 17-7 in their last 24 road games and 24-8 in their last 32 overall. The Indians are 9-3 in their last 12 Tuesday games, 8-3 in their last 11 during game 2 of a series and 3-9 in their last 12 overall. The under is 7-1 in White Sox last 8 overall. The under is 6-2-2 in Indians last 10 home games. The White Sox are 7-16 in the last 23 meetings in Cleveland.
Reynaldo Lopez has allowed four earned runs and 11 hits in his last 12 innings while Shane Bieber has allowed seven runs and 14 hits in his last 19.2 innings. The Cleveland Indians should be the favorite here, as Bieber is a strong contender for the CY Young this year and isn't a pitcher you should be looking to fade. However, this price is insane and the White Sox are still one of the better teams in baseball despite their recent hiccups. More than two times our money? I'll take a shot.
