The Chicago White Sox will play the Minnesota Twins in Game 1 of their series at Target Field on Friday night.
The Chicago White Sox are 6-6 this season and have lost four games in a row. Chicago is coming off of a series loss where the Guardians swept them at home. The Chicago pitching staff has a 3.78 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a .231 opponent batting average this season. The White Sox offense has scored 43 runs with a .215 batting average and a .265 on base percentage. Tim Anderson is batting .333 with one home run and five RBI’s for the White Sox this year. The projected starter for Chicago is Michael Kopech, who is 0-0 this season with a 1.00 ERA and a 0.78 WHIP over 9 innings pitched.
The Minnesota Twins are 5-8 this season and have lost four of their last six games. Minnesota is coming off of a series loss to Kansas City where they lost two of the three games. The Minnesota pitching staff has a 3.74 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a .229 opponent batting average. The Twins offense has scored 41 runs with a .202 batting average and a .291 on base percentage this year. Jorge Polanco has two home runs and seven RBI’s for the Twins this season. The projected starter for Minnesota is Bailey Ober, who is 1-1 this season with a 3.27 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP across 11 innings pitched.
Chicago is 0-4 in their last four games and Chicago is 4-0 in their last 4 starts by Kopech with the total set between 7 and 8.5. The under is 3-0-1 in Minnesota’s last 4 games against a right-handed starter and the under is 4-0-1 in Minnesota’s last 5 games against the AL Central. Chicago is 14-6 in these two teams last 20 head to head meetings. The under is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings in Minnesota.
The White Sox started the year strong, but have really hit a skid over their last four games. Minnesota has also struggled in their recent games and will go up against a very confident pitcher. The White Sox are the better team in this matchup and I really do not like what Ober has to offer. I am taking the White Sox to win on the road.
