White Sox vs Phillies Prediction

I’ll stay with the Phillies. Turnbull wasn’t super sharp in his last outing versus the Pirates though, so he’ll need some better numbers. On April 13 Turnbull put up 4.0 innings with three earned runs on four hits and four walks. Prior to that he had zero earned in 11.0 innings over two starts. As for Crochet, he gave up five earned in 4.2 innings to the Reds his last time up.

Philadelphia got a nice offensive effort and a (mostly) solid pitching outing in their latest win over the Rockies. Seven different batters got hits in the one-run victory. Another good game at the plate and Philly will be set up very well on Friday.
