White Sox are 0-4 in Kopechs last 4 starts with 4 days of rest. White Sox are 1-8 in their last 9 road games.

Shane’s Free Pick

Graham Ashcraft has been good this season for the Reds and this White Sox’s offense has been awful this season. The Reds offense might not run up the score against Kopech, but they are going to find some success scoring, and that is going to be the difference here. Back the Reds.
