Boston Red Sox vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I’m going to take a shot on the White Sox here. The White Sox have had a quarter of their wins with Crochet as the starter this season, and I think he could be in a good position to get a win here. The Red Sox have had considerable issues against left-handed pitching for the better part of the season, and this feels like a prime a spot as any to take a shot on the White Sox. Give me Chicago here.
