BIG AL's RED-HOT MLB 3-GAME CARD (24-10 RUN)!
Chicago Cubs (33-25) at Chicago White Sox (34-24)
Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 7:10 pm
At 7:10 pm, our selection is on the Chicago White Sox over the Chicago Cubs. By now, most baseball followers know that the Nationals traded their #1 pitching prospect, RH Lucas Giolito, to the White Sox for OF Adam Eaton. But what they may not know is that the Nats included another talented righthander in that deal. That pitcher was former (2016) first round draft pick Dane Dunning. The 25-year-old is making his MLB debut this season for the Sox and it has to be at least a little bit painful for the Nats to not only see Giolito doing so well, but also now Dunning developing nicely for Chicago. The former Florida Gator will get his seventh start tonight and it will be first vs. the Sox cross-town rivals. Dunning has done by far his best work in his new home ballpark, going 1-0 with a 2.20 ERA in three starts covering 16 1/3 innings here at Guaranteed Rate Field (vs. 1-0 and 4.30 on the road). The Cubs will go with LHP Jon Lester and the White Sox are an incredible 13-0 in their last 13 games vs. southpaw starters. Take the Sox. Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
