The Chicago White Sox and Toronto Blue Jays continue their three-game series tonight at Rogers Center after the home team eked out a win last night 6-5. The Jays were powered by two home runs by Alejandro Kirk and extended their current winning streak to six games. Toronto is now 15-7 in one-run games, which is the best record of its kind in the majors. Meanwhile, the White Sox fell below .500 after losing their third game in four tries. After looking like a team that turned a corner, Chicago has fallen back into bad habits and needs to bounce back here to regain some momentum.

White Sox vs. Blue Jays Prediction and Pick

While the White Sox are not in great form right now, they have one of the hottest pitchers on the mound today to try and turn things around. Michael Kopech enters tonight's showdown North of the border with a 1.29 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in 42 innings. He’s only 1-1, but that is a byproduct of how bad the White Sox’s offense has played. Kopech has allowed just three runs combined over his last four starts. Three of which were scoreless appearances. The last two of those games came against the dangerous New York Yankees. So, it’s reasonable to assume that Kopech will have another solid start here. This will be Kopech’s third career appearance against the Blue Jays. His first two were complete disasters that left him with a 33.75 ERA and 4.50 WHIP in 1 ⅓ innings of work against Toronto. I assume things will go much better tonight. 

Hyun Jun Ryu will make his sixth start of the year for the Blue Jays after three consecutive strong appearances in May. In three starts, Ryu saw his ERA go from 5.48 to 1.72 after dominating the Angels, Reds, and Rays. He gave up just three runs last month and struck out seven while walking two. 

This could end up being a very low-scoring pitching duel if each of these guys continues to pitch the way they have over the last few weeks. I’m willing to take a chance that the White Sox continue to struggle while the Blue Jays regress a bit at the plate. 

Pick: UNDER 8.5 (-105)
