Moneyline pick: White Sox -180
The Indians stole Game 1 on Friday night, winning 5-3 with ace Shane Bieber on the mound. Cleveland has now won four out of their last five games. Bieber had another impressive outing for the Indians, racking up 11 strikeouts in 6.0 IP. It was the fourth time in five starts that he has recorded 10 or more strikeouts.
As for their offense, Jose Ramirez went 2-for-4 at the plate, including a solo home run and had three RBI. Cleveland is hoping that McKenzie can build off the momentum that Bieber started in today’s contest. The 23-year-old pitcher had a rough against the New York Yankees last weekend. He allowed four walks, four hits (two home runs), three earned runs, and struck out five in 4.0 IP. This season, McKenzie has not registered a win yet, but has an ERA of 4.32 through four starts.
As for White Sox’s starter Lynn, he has a record of 1-1, an ERA of 0.92, and 27 strikeouts in 19.2 IP. The 33-year-old was placed on the 10-day IL with a strained right trapezius on April 17, so it shall be interesting to see how he pitches in his first start back. In five starts against the Indians, Lynn is 3-2 with an ERA of 1.41, which is the best versus any team of his career.
