Free MLB Pick
The White So won yesterday’s game, but they have not won 2 straight road games all season. Jose Quintana has lost 2 straight starts, but in his last 3 outings he has an ERA of only 2.37. In his last start he gave up 2 earned runs in 5 innings in a 4-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers. In his last 4 starts he has only received 3 runs of support. The White Sox are 2-6 in Quintana’s last 8 road starts. Jimmy Nelson had 11 strikeouts in his last start, but gave up 4 earned runs in 7 innings in a 7-6 loss to the Chicago Cubs. The Brewers have only won 2 of his last 11 starts and only 1 of their last 7 at home.
While both teams have struggled this season each has been turning it around as of late. Quintana has been pretty solid as of late and he will have another good outing tonight and finally get a little support from the offense, as the White Sox will win and take this interleague series.
