I really like this UNDER today between the Chicago White Sox and Colorado Rockies in Game 3 of this series. These are two teams that are really struggling at the plate right now. Colorado has scored 4 runs or less in seven straight games. They are hitting .231 and scoring 3.4 RPG during this span. Chicago has scored 5 runs or less in each of their last seven games, including 4 or less in six of them. The White Sox are hitting .246 and scoring 3.0 RPG in their last seven. Chicago is hitting .253 and putting up 4.1 RPG for the season, and the Rockies are batting .252 and scoring 4.4 RPG on the year. These offenses are getting way too much respect from odds makers.
Jake Peavy has been solid this season, going 4-1 with a 4.23 ERA and 1.018 WHIP in six starts and one relief appearance. Peavy sports a 3.81 ERA in 17 career starts against Colorado. Aside from his last start which came against the Yankees in New York, Aaron Cook has pitched well this year in his three other starts. The White Sox are 10-2 to the UNDER in road games when playing against a team with a losing record this season. The UNDER is 7-1 in White Sox last 8 interleague road games. The UNDER is 30-11-2 in White Sox last 43 road games vs. a team with a losing record. The UNDER is 6-0 in Rockies last 6 interleague home games vs. a team with a losing record. Bet the UNDER in this game Thursday.

Off last night’s 4-2 home loss to Detroit, I’m going to jump all over the Pale Hose on Sunday afternoon.
Grabbing the pill for the White Sox will be veteran right-hander Jake Peavy. In his last three starts against the Red Sox, Rangers and Indians, Peavy has been right on the money allowing just five earned runs and 14 hits in 19.0 innings of work. That’s good enough for a 2-0 record and a respectable 2.37 ERA. Jake’s strikeout-to-walk ratio of 12-1 is noteworthy too. In his lone home start inside The Cell, No. 44 tossed a gem against Cleveland allowing no earned runs and three hits through 9.0 frames.
Blackwell, Oklahoma product Brad Penny gets the call for visiting Detroit. In his last two starts against the Twins and Pirates, Penny has struggled something fierce allowing 10 earned runs and 16 hits through 11.2 innings. That’s bad enough for an elevated 7.72 ERA! Brad’s efforts on the road have been awful too. With 28.0 innings completed on foreign soil, No. 31 has been hammered for 24 earned runs and 30 hits. That adds up to a nasty 1-3 mark and a pitiful 7.71 ERA!
Back on April 23rd, Penny tossed a gem against the Sox allowing no earned runs and one hit in 9.0 innings of work. The Tigers cruised in that contest 9-0. The outcome of this battle will be much different. Detroit has dropped 39 of its last 54 on the road against a right-handed starter while the ChiSox have nailed eight of their last 10 coming off a straight up loss. Take Chicago with Peavy. Thank you and best of luck, Tom Stryker.
