Orioles vs White Sox Prediction

The White Sox are coming into this game with major problems in their bullpen this season but they have been hitting the ball very well in their recent games and have been getting some wins in high scoring games when their pitching is not there for them. They are going up against an Orioles team that has not been good this season when playing on the road and they have been losing a lot of games recently against some of the bottom teams in the MLB. They were playing well against teams in their division but outside of those games they have not been great and they will likely not be able to keep up with a White Sox team that has had their bats heating up recently. Cueto is starting here and he has been good this season and will likely keep that up here with another good performance to take some stress off their bullpen. Kremer is starting for the orioles and he has been good in his few starts this season but he just came off of an injury and still has not started in many games. The White Sox will likely get to him here for some runs and they should keep up their streak winning this game at home. The best bet here is on the White Sox to win this game.

Notable Quotes

 
"I thought Fedde threw the ball extremely well. He really pitched to the edges well. We helped him out by chasing. We just didn't square many balls up. I think our at-bats for the most part these past few weeks have been really good (but) tonight we just didn't have a lot of hard contact." - Brandon Hyde after his team’s loss against the Nationals on Tuesday.
 
 
"A very special win. Starting with Cease and then coming back like we did." - Tony La Russa after his team’s win against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.
