The White Sox are averaging 4.17 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.94 runs per game. The offense is ranked 23rd while the pitching is ranked 25th. If the White Sox want to find success here, they are going to need the offense to find success here.

Shane’s Free Pick

The Rangers offense struggled to score over the weekend and it’s not going to get any easier against Schloens. He currently sits with an ERA of 3.32 and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. The White Sox’s offense is also coming off a game where they struggled and they are going to really struggle again in this game. This game is going to be lower scoring and the under is going to cash here.
