Free MLB Prediction
Tommy Milone has allowed2 runs over 20 innings to win each of his 3 starts against the White Sox this season. The Twins have won 5 of their last 6 games, including their last 2, with him on the hill and in his last outing he gave up 2 earned runs in 7 innings in a 6-2 win over the Kansas City Royals. The Twins are 2-5 in Milone’s last 7 road starts. The White Sox have won 4 straight games with Jose Quintana on the mound and in his last start he did not give up any earned runs in 7 innings in a 6-1 win over the Kansas City Royals. He was 3-1 with a 1.81 ERA over his previous 7 starts against the Twins, but in his last start facing them he gave up 7 runs in 6 innings of work in a 8-1 loss at the end of May.
While the White Sox have lost 5 of their last 7 home games I am going with them in this game, as Jose Quintana will have another quality start.
