The Royals and White Sox face off at 7:10pm eastern time tonight in the first of a 3-game set. Both teams come into this game struggling, the Royals have lost 4 straight while the White Sox have lost 7. Chicago returns home for their next 7 games following a 6-game road trip. The White Sox are 4-2 at home this season while the Royals are 0-4 on the road.
Daniel Lynch will make his 3rd start for the Royals in this one. The Cardinals blasted him for 6 ER in his first start, but he held the Twins scoreless through 5 in his 2nd. He struggled mightily against the White Sox last year. Across 3 starts he went just 8IP allowing 16 hits and 15 earned runs.
Dallas Keuchel takes the mound for Chicago. He was okay in his first start allowing 3 ER in 5IP but got crushed by Cleveland in his 2nd. He went just 1 inning and allowed 7ER in a start he’d like to forget. In his 1 start at home against KC last year Keuchel went 6IP and allowed 2 ER.
Like the Cardinals the White Sox hammer left-handed pitching. They trail only STL in OPS vs left-handed pitching this year at .848. The White Sox also ranked 6th in OPS vs left handers in 2021 too. This is the perfect get right spot for the White Sox offense. They’ll get to the young left hander same as last year. Trust the veteran to provide meaningful outs before passing it off to a rested White Sox bullpen.
