The Arizona Diamondbacks and Chicago White Sox face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Guaranteed Rate Field.
The Diamondbacks come into this game with a 56-67 record overall and they have had some big issues hitting with runners in scoring position coming into this game. In the last game against the Kansas City Royals, the offense had only five hits and three runs. Overall Arizona is averaging 4.27 runs per game which is 19th in the league. Christian Walker has hit 30 home runs and driven in 72 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the White Sox and they sit with a 63-62 record overall. On Thursday the White Sox were competitive but they only managed three runs and that led to the defeat. Overall this season the White Sox are averaging 4.19 runs per game which is 21st in the league. In this game the White Sox need the offense to find success early, and put the pressure on the Diamondbacks bats.
On the mound for the DBacks will be Tommy Henry who sits with a 2-2 record and an ERA of 3.57. In his last start against St. Louis, he went 5.1 innings giving up six hits and one run.
On the mound for the White Sox will be Johnny Cueto who sits with a 6-5 record and an ERA of 2.58. In his last start against the Cleveland Guardians, he went 8.2 innings giving up five hits and zero runs.
The Diamondbacks are 1-4 in their last five games. The White Sox are 5-0 in their last five home games against a team with a losing record. The over is 4-0 in the Diamondbacks' last four games overall. The over is 10-1 in the Diamondbacks last 11 interleague road games.
Cueto hasn’t gotten enough attention for what he has done this season. In his last start he gave up zero runs, and I expect the Diamondbacks bats are going to have trouble hitting again in this game. The White Sox will give Cueto enough run support to secure this victory on the run line.
