The Chicago Cubs lost the game to the White Sox, but they had an appropriate send off for Kerry Wood who retired after the game after striking out the only batter he faced during the game. Ryan Dempster starts tonight for the Cubs. Dempster is still looking for his first win of the season despite just pitching to a 1.74 ERA thus far. He has struck out as many guys as innings pitched this year with 41.
The White Sox took game one on Friday night largely due to the hitting of Paul Konerko who hit a home run and Gordon Beckham whose home run ended up being the difference in the game. The White Sox will pitch John Danks tonight who has been solid vs. the crosstown rivals throughout his career although he has struggled this season so far allowing 54 hits in just 47 innings of work.
The Cubs are 1-5 in hteor last six home games, 0-5 in their last five games overall, and 1-6 in Dempster’s last seven starts. The White Sox are 6-1 in their last seven games as an underdog, 22-6 in their last 28 interleague games, and 4-1 in Danks’ last five road starts. The White Sox have won six of the last seven meetings of these two.
We like the White Sox as a money line play in this one so before wagering read a sports book review.
