This Cubs/White Sox series just got a lot more interesting with the Willson Contreras bat flip and plunking from Friday, and I think we see the intensity level ramp up here. Dane Dunning’s coming in off of his worat career start in his brief tenure with the White Sox after allowing four runs in four innings but the White Sox have gone 5-1 in Dunning’s starts this season. On the other hand, Jon Lester’s gone from being a Christmas tree in the middle of the season, to back to dealing, throwing six innings in each of his last three starts, allowing two runs in 18 innings in that stretch. I think we could see a pitcher’s duel here, so give me the under as my premium pick for this game.
