White Sox Continue to be Awful

The White Sox still only have three wins on the season and they have lost each of the first two games of this series. Catcher Korey Lee was one of the lonely bright spots hitting a home run on Wednesday. Starting pitcher Garrett Crochet was awful going four innings giving up seven hits and five 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.

Can Soroka Be Better Here?

 Getting the start for the White Sox will be Michael Soroka who sits with an 0-3 record and an ERA of 7.50. In his last start against the Philadelphia Phillies, he went 4.2 innings giving up six hits and five runs. 

Maybe the Twins Only Needed the White Sox to Figure It Out 

The Twins now have a 10-13 record overall and on Wednesday they scored six goals on the way to the victory. Willi Castro had a strong game finishing with a home run, two hits, and three runs driven in. 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. The Twins will face the Angels, White Sox, and Red Sox following this series.

Bailey Ober Needs to Be Good

Getting the start for the Twins will be Bailey Ober who sits with a 1-1 record and an ERA of 4.91. In his last start against the Detroit Tigers, he went six innings giving up two hits and one run. If he struggles here that would be a major disappointment.

Chicago White Sox vs Minnesota Twins Betting Prediction

The Twins are going to have no issue running up the score here. The Twins offense at times has been inconsistent but Soroka has been so awful against everyone. In his last start he gave up six hits and five runs, and he’s going to really struggle here. The Twins are going to get a strong start from Ober and that is going to be the difference here as the Twins are going to get the job done. Back the Twins on the run line.
