When it comes to Chicago White Sox, having the nod for them will undoubtedly be Miguel Gonzalez (0-1, 3.93 ERA). He’ll be making the pitching start , as supposed starter Carlos Rodon is dealing with some neck soreness. This marks just Gonzalez’s sixth start this season.
The 32-year-old right-hander was pretty solid in his last start contrary to the Mets on June 1. Because game, he pitched for five innings of one-run ball and delivered four strike outs despite notching the no-decision. Gonzalez will surely be trying to replicate that effort.
Over on offense, expect Melky Cabrera to have things going. He’s been carrying a warm bat lately, going 7-for-19 with a dual and one RBI in the previous five games. Cabrera, though, is 3-for-15 lifetime contrary to the Nats’starter in Gio Gonzalez.
I’m siding with the White Sox in this matchup. I recently can’t side with a pitcher in Gio Gonzalez that’s surrendered 18 runs in his last three starts. Also, Miguel Gonzalez has been efficient in 2010, allowing three runs or less in all but one of is own starts in 2010, so I’m confident backing him. You may get value taking Chicago on the amount of money line so I’d take them at home in this one. Prediction: Chicago White Sox
