Mike Lundin’s Athletics vs White Sox Free Pick
Start Time: August 09 2019, 3:10 PM
The Chicago White Sox host the Oakland Athletics for the opener of a three-game series Friday afternoon.
Both teams will play on a day of rest but coming off very different results as the White Sox scored eight runs in a blowout win at Detroit on Wednesday while the A’s took a 10-1 beating by the Cubs at Wrigley the same day. Oakland is 12-2 in its last 14 games following an off day and I expect the visitors to bounce back in a big way here.
White Sox left-hander Ross Detwiler (1-2, 5.72 ERA) gave up five runs (four earned) on seven hits in 3-plus innings of a 13-2 loss at Oakland on July 13. Over his career, Detwiler has a 9.00 ERA in six outings against the A’s who counter with right-hander Mike Fiers (10-3, 3.46 ERA). Fiers has compiled a 2.26 ERA in his past 16 outings and the A’s are 9-2 in Fiers’ last 11 starts. Additionally, note that Fiers is 3-0 with a 1.83 ERA in seven career starts versus the White Sox.
Athletics are 16-5 in their last 21 games following a loss. White Sox are 0-7 in their last 7 home games vs. a right-handed starter.
