The MLB is back in action today as the Chicago White Sox will clash with the Los Angeles Angels. This is game one of a four-game series, which will take place at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. The White Sox will give the nod to Reynaldo Lopez and the Angels will counter with Andrew Heaney.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox are not playing well this season as they did not meet their fans’ expectations. Also, this Chicago team is out of the playoff race and now they can only play for pride and prestige. Another problem why the White Sox have struggled so badly has been their inability to win the away games. With a 24-34 away from home this season, they can’t expect much more than their current standing.
On the offensive side of the game, the Chicago score an average of 4.29 runs per game. On the mound, however, they have also been below average as they come into this game ranked 21st in the league with a 4.81 ERA. And the bullpen for the White Sox ranks 12th in the league with a 4.33 ERA.
Los Angeles Angels Form
The Angels had a sudden drop in form after the All-Star Break. Moreover, they are now out of the playoff race. Moreover, it is important to emphasize that their pitching is not good enough as they have not been able to keep its opponents off of the bases. In each of its last two games, the Angels have allowed at least ten runs.
On the offensive side of the game, the Angels score an average of 5.00 runs per game. Also, they are ranking 13th in the league with 8.63 hits per game. On the mound, they have been below average so far as they come in ranked 26th in the league in ERA at 5.09.
The Angels are in a free fall right now and their season is pretty much over. On the other side, the White Sox are in a similar position. However, they showed some great performances in their series against the Astros. Moreover, their offensive game is experiencing a great improvement and I expect them to be efficient in this game. Take the White Sox to win this one as they are on a free-scoring run at the moment.
