The MLB is set with another packed night of activity on Friday night. There will be a total of fifteen matches on the plank August 16 as a second weekend of baseball starts. One of those matchups to end will probably be between the Chicago White Sox and the Los Angeles Angels. These two teams are set to meet at around 10:07 PM Eastern time on Friday night.
The White Sox have made a list of 54-66 for this stage in this season, which has them sitting in third position of the AL Central. Chicago has not had the best season, however they will look to try as the season nears its finish, and finish strong. The White Sox have won just two of the past few matches and will try and keep that streak going with a road victory against the Angels.
Los Angeles includes a list of 60-63 this year, which has them sitting in position of the AL West. The Angels have struck a bit of a dry spell out of late, dropping ten of the last two matches. If they catch alluring in these last months of the season, los Angeles is twenty five games of a wild card place in the American League, however may make a push for this.
The Angels and the White Sox equally have records that are losing however, are still currently looking to end strong. Both rosters are solid and should match up well with each other again. Los Angeles and chicago are meeting up in their first series for this season. Last nights match proved to be a night to feel each other out, which ought to result in a matchup that is second that is competitive.
The White Sox and the Angels met last season. Chicago hosted the very first show at the years subsequent stages. The White Sox managed to acquire 4-2 and 5-3 to the first two games, but Los Angeles bounced back to win the third and the fourth game by dozens of 11-3 and 12-8. The next series shifted to Los Angeles, in which Chicago swept with scores of 1-0 and 5-2, 12-3.
The first game of the series has been night in Los Angeles. The Angels got started early as Justin Upton and Mike Trout homered to assist lead Los Angeles to an 8-2 lead. Jose Abreu homered in the seventh inning to pull it nearer. Welington Castillo had a homer for the White Sox as Chicago made a comeback push in the top of the ninth. The White Sox attempt fell short though as they lost 8-7.
The Angeles could pull off another win against the White Sox on Thursday night and put a record of 5-2 against Chicago last season. If they would like to bounce back from last nights loss chicago will need to have a start on Friday night. I believe they can triumph in the next match of the series, When the White Sox can ride the momentum however.
Jose Abreu has put up a solid performance making 133 hits, 25 home runs and 89 RBIs. Leury Garcia has 34 RBIs and 126 hits. Tim Anderson has earned 12 homers, 110 hits and 40 RBIs. James McCann has set up 86 strikes, 13 homers and 43 RBIs, while Eloy Jimenez has 76 hits, 20 home runs and 47 RBIs on the year.
David Fletcher leads Los Angeles in hits but has 5 home runs and 42 RBIs. Mike Trout leads this group with 121 strikes, 40 homers, 93 RBIs along with an OPS of 1.093. Kole Calhoun has got 99 hits, 26 home runs and 60 RBIs. Shohei Ohtani has 15 home runs, 90 strikes and 49 RBIs. Albert Pujols has 86 strikes, 18 home runs and 70 RBIs, although Brian Goodwin has 80 strikes and 10 homers.
I think that the Angels have a slight advantage with Mike Trout in their lineup, although Both of these teams have hitters during their lineup. Meanwhile, the White Sox are currently missing Yoan Moncada, that has 112 strikes and 20 home runs on the season, that has hurt them. Both of these lineups can do a little harm though if they go up from weak pitching.
The White Sox will possess Lucas Giolito start on the mound for the tilt of Friday night. Giolito has set up an album through 23 starts this year. In all those starts, he has posted an ERA of 3.42 and a WHIP of 1.127. Giolitos last start came against the Oakland As, where he allowed two runs and five hits during six innings with 13 strikeouts.
Patrick Sandoval will start for Los Angeles at Friday nights match. Sandoval has played two games and has one start this season. In those two games, he has a 5.59 ERA and a WHIP of all 1.552. Sandovals launch came on August 11 against the Boston Red Sox. Sandoval allowed four runs and six hits through two-thirds and four innings.
I feel that the White Sox have a edge in this matchup in regards to pitching. Giolito has set up a solid time for Chicago, while Sandoval hasnt been fantastic and has just played twice. I believe that the White Sox will have a chance to get an early lead against Sandoval, which might give them the necessary edge in this game.
The Angeles managed to win the series first game, but I think that the White Sox will have the ability to rebound with a win of their own on Friday night. Chicago and Los Angeles match on the hitting side, but with Giolito beginning for the White Sox, I enjoy them to pull off the win. Sandoval has been subpar in his matches played so much and I do not anticipate a great beginning Friday .
BetOnline includes Los Angeles. This suggests that the Angels will win this game around 55.4% of the time. I think this match needs to be much closer to , which provides a good deal of significance. Im taking Chicago to bounce back in Thursday nights loss.
