The Chicago White Sox and Toronto Blue Jays meet at the Rogers Centre on Tuesday in an American League matchup.
The White Sox have a 23-23 overall record and won 5-4 in extra innings against the Cubs in their last game.
There were a lot of expectations going into this season, but they’ve mainly been met, with the offence playing a huge role. The White Sox are averaging 3.63 runs per game, which ranks them 27th in the Major League Baseball. Both Andrew Vaughn and Jose Abreau have five home runs and 20 RBIs to their credit.
The Toronto Blue Jays, on the other hand, have a 27-20 record and won their most recent game 11-10 against the Los Angeles Angels. This offensive has a lot of skill, but it hasn’t lived up to the high expectations that most people had for it. George Springer has been the team’s leading hitter, with nine home runs and 24 RBIs.
Lucas Giolito, who has a 3-1 record and a 2.63 ERA, will take the mound for the White Sox.
Kevin Gausman, who has a 4-3 record and a 2.55 ERA, takes the mound for the Blue Jays. He lasted six innings against the Cardinals last time out, allowing four hits and zero runs.
Overall, the Blue Jays are 5-0 in their last five games. Following an off day, Giolito has gone 0-4 in his previous four outings for the White Sox. In Giolito’s previous five starts, the under is 4-0-1. When Giolito’s opponent allows 5 runs or more in their prior game, the under is 3-0-1 in his last 4 starts.
When Giolito pitches, the under is always a good bet, and this game will be no exception. The ERA for Giolito is 2.63, while the ERA for Gausman is 2.55. Both of these offences have been disappointing this season, and runs will be difficult to come by in this game.
