The Chicago White Sox and San Diego Padres face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Petco Park. The two teams have split the first two games of this series. 

The White Sox sit with a 78-80 record overall and at this point this is a team that has quit on the season. Just a few weeks ago it looked like they might make the playoffs but a long losing streak really hurt them. The White Sox overall are averaging 4.27 runs per game which is 18th in the league. Jose Abreu has had a nice season for the squad hitting 15 home runs and driving in 75 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Padres who sit with an 87-71 record overall and every game is important as the playoffs approach. The Padres on Saturday scored five runs and secured the win. The Padres offense is averaging 4.36 runs per game which is 14th best in the league. Manny Machado is having a strong season hitting 32 home runs and driving in 101 RBIs. 

On the mound for the White Sox will be Lance Lynn who sits with a 7-7 record and an ERA of 4.16. In his last start he went five innings giving up 10 hits and four runs. 

On the mound for the Padres will be Blake Snell who sits with an 8-9 record and an ERA of 3.47. In his last start he went five innings giving up one hit and zero runs. 

The White Sox are 11-2 in their last 12 interleague road games. The under is 4-0 in the Padres last four games overall. The over is 5-0-1 in White Sox last 6 interleague road games vs. a left-handed starter.

Lance Lynn really struggled in his last start and the Padres have so much more to play for right now. I expect Snell to have another strong start, and that will be the difference as the Padres find success. The Padres will also score four or five off Lynn on the way to the victory. Back the Padres -1.5 to cash.
