The Cubs are having a subpar season as we all know, but they are enjoying the role of spoiler they are playing against the White Sox. They received a solid start from Travis Wood and their bullpen held down the fort yesterday in what was a thrilling 2-1 win. The Cubs go for the sweep tonight behind starting pitcher Randy Wells who is making just his third start of the season.
The White Sox swept the Cubs earlier this season, but now are in danger of losing three straight to the Cubs with a loss tonight. Yesterday the White Sox received a great pitching outing from Jake Peavy who went nine innings and allowed just five hits in the contest. The White Sox offense could however just score one run on four hits in a 2-1closs. Gavin Floyd will take the hill tonight for the White Sox. Floyd has lost four of his last five decisions and is pitching to a 5.63 ERA this season.
The White Sox are 206 in their last eight home games, 1-6 in their last seven games overall, and 105 in Floyd’s last six starts. The Cubs are 11-24 in their last 35 interleague home games, 1-4 in their last five game three of a series, and 0-5 in Wells’ last five starts. The Cubs are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings of these two.
We expect a high scoring game in this one given the inexperience of Wells and the fact that Floyd has had a tough season. Give us the over for total runs scored in this contest at online sportsbooks.
