The Chicago White Sox will play the Kansas City Royals in a double header on Tuesday at Kauffman Stadium.
The Chicago White Sox are 17-17 this season and have won two of their last three games. Chicago is coming off of a Game 1 win, where they defeated Kansas City by a score of 5-3 on Monday. The Chicago pitching staff has a 3.79 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a .231 opponent batting average this season. The White Sox offense has scored 122 runs with a .228 batting average and a .283 on base percentage. Tim Anderson is batting .339 with four home runs and 12 RBI’s for the White Sox this season. The projected starter for Chicago in Game 1 is Dylan Cease, who is 3-1 with a 3.55 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP over 38 innings pitched. The projected starter for Game 2 is Lucas Giolito, who is 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP over 26.2 innings pitched this season.
The Kansas City Royals are 12-21 this season and have alternated wins and losses over their last seven games. Prior to the Game 1 loss, Kansas City won two out of three against the Rockies. The Kansas City pitching staff has a 4.64 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP, and a .258 opponent batting average. The Royals offense has scored 121 runs with a .222 batting average and a .287 on base percentage this year. Andrew Benintendi is batting .314 with two home runs and 16 RBI’s for the Royals this season. The projected starter for Kansas City in Game 1 is Brady Singer, who is 0-0 with a 6.35 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP over 5.2 innings pitched this season. The Game 2 starter for Kansas City is Jon Heasley, who is 0-1 with a 2.70 ERA and a 2.40 WHIP over 3.1 innings pitched.
Chicago is 6-0 in their last 6 road games and 19-7 in their last 26 Tuesday games. The under is 8-3-1 in Chicago’s last 12 games. Kansas City is 7-16 in their last 23 games and 1-6 in their last 7 home games. The over is 5-2 in Kansas City’s last 7 game 2’s of a series. The under is 13-3-1 in these two teams last 17 head to head meetings.
These two teams will play two games on Tuesday as Chicago continues to fight back into the AL Central race. The Royals have alternated wins and losses over their last seven games, which means they are due for a win here in Game 1. I like the White Sox in both of these matchups due to the pitching advantage, but it is tough to sweep a double header. I am taking Chicago by 1.5 in the game that Giolito starts and Chicago to win the other straight up.
