White Sox Blow Another Lead

The White Sox had a chance on Tuesday to pick up a win, but they blew it again late, and that led to the defeat. Steven Wilson pitched only 0.2 innings and he gave up three hits and two earned runs. The White Sox’s offense is awful and they are averaging only 2.05 runs per game while the pitching is giving up 5.59 runs per game. The offense is ranked 30th in the NHL while the pitching is ranked 29th. This is a team that struggles to hit the long ball and they are averaging only 0.5 home runs per game. Gavin Sheets has been the only real bright for the offense and he has hit three home runs and driven 10 RBIs. 

Crochet Needs to Limit the Long Ball 

Getting the start for the White Sox will be Garrett Crochet and he sits with a 1-3 record and an ERA of 5.61. In his first couple starts of the season was good, but the last few starts have been awful. Against the Philadelphia Phillies in the last start, he went three innings giving up five hits and seven runs. He gave up three home runs. 

Byron Buxton Figuring It Out Finally

Maybe Tuesday night was all Byron Buxton needed to get his season back on the right track. Buxton finished with three hits, two runs, and one RBI. He tied up the game in the bottom of the 9th with a home run. The Twins are averaging 3.52 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.38 runs per game. The offense is ranked 26th in the league while the defense is ranked 15th. They are averaging 0.86 home runs per game. Ryan Jeffers has hit three home runs and drove in 12 RBIs. 

Will the Luck Be Better for Joe Ryan? 

Getting the start for the Twins will be Joe Ryan and he sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 3.57. In his last start against the Detroit Tigers, he went 5.1 innings giving up seven hits and four runs. He actually didn’t pitch that poorly, but there were a lot of soft hits that found their way where defenders weren’t. The Twins are dealing with some injury issues right now. Carlos Correa and Roce Lewis are both out for a while longer and that has really hurt the offensive production.

Chicago White Sox vs Minnesota Twins Betting Prediction

The Twins are going to have little issues getting the job done here. Joe Ryan really got unlikely in his last start, but he still sits with an ERA of 3.57. The White Sox offense has been a major issue all season and they are going to really struggle to get anything going here against Ryan. The Twins offense at times has shown some signs of life, and they are going to show those signs again here. In Crochet’s last start he gave up seven runs, and he’s going to be blown up here. The Twins are going to run up the score here. Pick the Twins on the run line here.
