Chicago White Sox Recap

The Chicago White Sox come into this series looking to build some momentum after salvaging something from their series finale against the Mariners with a 3-2 win in Thursday’s series finale. The White Sox still lost the series, meaning that Chicago would be unable to build some momentum after their series split with the White Sox from last weekend’s series.

Gavin Sheets leads the White Sox with a .238 batting average and a .346 OBP along with a team-high 14 doubles and 28 RBIs while Andrew Vaughn also has 8 homers and 25 RBIs and Andrew Benintendi has 4 home runs and 18 RBIs with Vaughn logging 13 doubles as well as a team-high 55 hits. Paul DeJong also has a team-high 13 home runs and 28 RBIs with a team-high 73 strikeouts as well this season.

The series win helped the Diamondbacks build on a series split from last weekend’s four-game set against the San Diego Padres.

Chicago White Sox vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

I’m on the White Sox here. Is Chris Flexen my favorite pitcher in this White Sox rotation? No, but Ryne Nelson’s borderline unbackable given his career issues at home with an ERA this season just under seven and documented issues in the past couple of years. Chicago’s been competitive in a lot of their recent games and I think they can battle here and draw first blood. Give me Chicago in this one.

Chris’s Pick Chicago White Sox +156
