On Tuesday, August 9, 2022, at 4:10 PM ET, the Chicago White Sox will take on the Kansas City Royals in MLB Game 1 action at Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium in MO.
The eighth game of the White Sox’s eight-game trip is today. Due to strong pitching throughout the weekend, they were able to win three of four games against the Rangers.
The squad is only two games out of first place in the AL Central, tied with the Twins. The offense’s season-long instability persisted in Texas, when a total of 12 runs were scored.
The White Sox will start Lance Lynn on the mound for the tenth time this season. In his previous appearance, Lynn excelled, giving up just one run to the Royals over six innings, and he was awarded the victory to improve his record to 2-4.
The seasoned right-hander missed a significant amount of the year due to ailments. Despite his recent progress, Lynn still has a horrendously high 5.87 ERA and 1.29 WHIP after 53.2 innings of work.
The recent offensive outburst made the Royals competitive. They hosted the Red Sox four times over the previous weekend, winning three of those games.
In those four games, they were also successful at the plate, scoring a commendable 29 runs.
In game one, Brady Singer will make his 18th appearance for the Royals this season. In his most recent outing, Singer struggled to find his groove and allowed the White Sox four runs in six innings, bringing his record down to 4-4.
The young right-hander is tossing 90.2 innings and has a strong 3.67 ERA and 1.19 WHIP. He is having a tremendous season.
Singer only allowed the White Sox four runs in 15 innings pitched this season. Singer has a career record of 2-2 with a 3.23 ERA in 39 innings pitched against his competitors.
Because Chicago just trounced the Royals last week by winning two out of three games, I prefer this matchup. White Sox starter Lance Lynn improved after a run of subpar games.
Last week, the right-hander defeated the Royals 4-1 while allowing only one run over six innings. In his previous 16.2 innings, he had allowed just five earned runs. Chicago ought to score enough runs to take the victory as well.
Starting pitcher for the Royals, Brady Singer, only allowed four runs to Chicago last week. This season, Kansas City had trouble scoring against Chicago pitchers, scoring just 3.4 runs per game on average.
