Boston Red Sox vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

Boston comes into this game trying to avoid an embarrassing series loss to Chicago, but they have been out scored 13-3 in their last two games. Chicago has played very poorly this season and they are just 12-22 at home. The White Sox are starting Flexen, who has some ugly numbers, but has had several decent starts. Boston is going with a bullpen game, which could be trouble against a suddenly hot White Sox offense. I think both teams will have plenty of scoring chances in this game and my Boston Red Sox vs Chicago White Sox prediction is for this game to go over the total.
