Chicago White Sox – Seattle Mariners Match Prediction | 13-09-2019 22:10

Bruce should supply solid power totals and not-so-solid anything else throughout the 2019 season. This gives Bruce five homers on the season, and he's now slugging .604 on the young campaign. Jay Bruce went 2-for-5 with two homers in the Mariners' 9-2 victory over the White Sox on Saturday. Bruce hit a solo shot in the fourth inning off of Lucas Giolito, and went deep again off Manny Banuelos in the ninth. He's also hitting just .189, but hey, dingers.

The bullpen has an earned run average of 4.52 and they have given up 478 base hits on the year. The White Sox have a 64-81 overall record this season. Teams are hitting .247 against the bullpen and they've struck out 460 hitters and walked 236 batters. They have allowed 218 home runs this season, ranking them 9th in the league. The White Sox pitchers collectively have given up 1,297 base hits and 699 earned runs. He's allowed 11.1 hits per 9 innings and he has a FIP of 6.15. Starting pitcher Dylan Covey has a 1-8 record with an earned run average of 7.69 and a WHIP of 1.69 this season. They have a team WHIP of 1.43 and their FIP as a unit is 4.95. They have walked 3.7 men per 9 innings while striking out 8.3 per 9. Chicago as a pitching staff has walked 522 batters and struck out 1,171. As a team, Chicago allows 9.2 hits per nine innings while striking out 8.3 batters per nine innings. He has 39 strikeouts over his 55 innings pitched and he's given up 68 hits. They are 23rd in the league in team earned run average at 4.96.

Ivan Nova will start game three and is 0-0 with a 1.29 ERA and 4 strikeouts this season. Eloy Jimenez went 3 for 4 as well while James McCann went 2 for 4 with a double. Lucas Giolito gave up five runs on six hits while walking and whiffing four apiece over 4.1 innings of work, taking the loss to fall to 1-1 this season. The Chicago White Sox will look to bounce back after being taken down in game two on Saturday. Leury Garcia added a base hit as well to cap off Chicagos offense in the losing effort. Tim Anderson and Jose Abreu accounted for all of the White Sox scoring with a solo home run respectively, with Anderson going 3 for 4 at the dish. In his career, Nova is 0-0 with a 3.94 ERA and 11 strikeouts against Seattle.

Sidebar

I love the Mariners team total of over 4.5 runs. Bruce hit his fourth and fifth home runs of the season yesterday but hes not the only Seattle hitter that could tee off on Nova today. The Mariners have been firing on all cylinders offensively, scoring 73 runs and racking up a bunch of home runs over their first 10 games. Ivan Nova owns a career 17.2 percent strikeout rate and has allowed at least 1.4 HR/9 in back-to-back seasons.

Seattle is 4-1 in Leakes last 5 starts and 10-2 in their last 12 games overall while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 road games. Seattle is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams. Chicago is 0-4 in Giolitos last 4 home starts and 3-9 in their last 12 home games while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall.

The Mariners are off to a surprising 7-1 start but as previously mentioned, they have struggled to win in Chicago. He went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and three runs scored in the White Sox 8-3 victory over Cleveland on Wednesday. Chicago hitters havent seen Yusei Kikuchi but Seattle is expected to be cautious with its new starter so if the White Sox can get through the first five or six innings, I expect them to eventually wear down the Ms pen. In their last 63 road games versus the White Sox, the Ms are just 19-44. This Chicago lineup doesnt have much thump but Moncada is off to a blistering start, hitting .450 with two home runs and six RBIs.

MLB Baseball 02:10 PM EST

Tim Beckham has taken the lead for his team in batting with an average of .353 along with 12 hits. LeBlanc is 1-0 this season with a .675 ERA, 1 Ks and 3 BBs. Seattle Mariners are holding a batting average of .263 at the plate and opposing hitter are averaging at .235. Domingo Santana is the leader in home runs with four and RBIs with 13. The Mariners will be sending left-handed Wade LeBlanc to the mound on Sunday.

The way today started for him could've turned ugly in a hurry. But the 2019 version turns around and strikes out eight in a row, finds a way to lock it in. But mentally, he's a completely different pitcher, and honestly, I think that's equally important if not more important than the mechanical changes that he made, McCann said. Mechanically, he cleaned up a few things that have really helped him turn it on this year. The 2018 version, it probably does turn ugly.

Right now, Im good with where hes at, Chicago pitching coach Don Cooper told reporters. But weve got about 12 or 13 more starts this season to continue the learning curve. Gonzales won his third straight start on July 11, allowing two hits without issuing a walk over seven innings in a 3-0 road victory against the Los Angeles Angels. I think hes doing fine. The 24-year-old Dominican has issued 47 walks in 112 2/3 frames, including 13 in his last five outings. Lopez took the loss against Kansas City on July 14 after giving up five runs and nine hits over 7 2/3 innings.

What's he supposed to do? Maybe. With the Yankees and Boston Red Sox pretty much uber teams out in the AL East, and the Houston Astros in the same category at the top of the Mariners' division, there's one playoff spot to compete for. Was this roster going to get that done? But is "maybe" enough to go on when it comes to the course of a franchise? That's what 89 wins gets you in baseball these days. And it's hard to blame Dipoto, either.
