After splitting the first two games of this four-game series, the 8-12 Chicago White Sox host the 14-8 Los Angeles Angels today at 2:10 PM EST.

Chicago won yesterday for just the second time in 12 games and will send Dallas Keuchel to the hill today in hopes of starting a winning streak. Keuchel is coming off a two-run, four-inning performance against Kansas City and has a 9.00 ERA through three starts.

Los Angeles will counter with Michael Lorenzen, who sports a 2.93 ERA through 15.1 innings and didn't allow a run in his last outing against Cleveland.

Can the White Sox earn a second victory in a row or will Lorenzen silence the Chicago bats en route to an Angels win?

Angels vs White Sox Prediction and Pick

I said a couple of weeks ago that I'd be looking to fade Dallas Keuchel early and often this season. He's just not the same pitcher he used to be, and we saw how bad things can go for him when he gave up 10 runs in the first inning to the Guardians two starts ago.

Now he gets to face an Angels team that's been rolling. Los Angeles won six in a row prior to yesterday's loss and leads the MLB in OPS.

Chicago's bullpen ranks 20th in ERA and they used four relievers yesterday, so if Keuchel gets in trouble early then it's going to be a long day for the White Sox.

Especially after getting shut out yesterday, the Angels should come out hungry in this one. I love getting Los Angeles at such a short number against one of my favorite pitchers to fade, and I think we see a lot of runs from the visitors.

I'm taking the Angels at -114, but I'm also taking their team total over four runs as well. They should score in bunches, and Keuchel hasn't shown any reason to think he can keep their explosive lineup at bay.

Pick: Angels (-114) and Angels Team Total Over 4.0 Runs (-125)
