Chicago White Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays Odds & Pick: April 14th 2010
The White Sox managed just one hit in their 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays last night. Chicago’s offense has been in a slumber for most of this season. The White Sox are currently hitting .190 against right-handed pitchers this season averaging just 3.6 runs per game. They’ll face Toronto’s Brandon Morrow tonight who has made one start against the White Sox in his career where he gave up three runs and six hits in 5.7 innings of work. Morrow is still working on going more innings as a starter, but the Blue Jays bullpen is sporting a 2.33 ERA and pitched a scoreless 9th inning on Monday night. Chicago is only hitting .176 against Morrow as a team with Andruw Jones (0-4), Mark Teahen (0-4), AJ Pierzynski (0-3) and Carlos Quentin (0-1) all looking for their first hit against him.
John Danks goes for the White Sox in this one. He is coming off an outing in which he gave up two runs and eight hits in six innings against Minnesota. Toronto sports an oddity of an offense as they are averaging five runs per game this season while hitting only .226. They have faced one lefty this season managing only three runs off C.J. Wilson of Texas. Alex Gonzalez (1-5), John Buck (1-5) and Lyle Overbay (0-3) all have struggled against Danks. Three of Toronto’s last four games have gone Under the total, and we expect another low-scoring game tonight.
