Cleveland Guardians vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I might take a stab on the White Sox here. Crochet has been pretty good over his last two starts. In that pair he’s given up three earned on five hits and one walk in 11.0 innings. Crochet is coming off a win over the Cardinals. As for Carrasco, he was solid in his last start (6.0 innings; one earned), but prior to that he gave up 13 earned runs in 9.0 innings over two outings.

On Thursday the White Sox got just enough offensive production to assist a pretty great overall pitching effort. (The only stumble came from John Brebbia’s 0.2 frames, two hits and two earned runs.) It would be nice to see a couple more runs in this one, but Chicago should have a good shot at another W.
