MLB: NY Yankees v Chicago White Sox (10:10am AEST)
The Yankees will carry momentum into the third game of this series after putting up 20 hits and scoring nine runs in a 9-0 victory Wednesday. Back NY WIN.
New York had seven players with multiple hits on the night as the Sox pitchers just appeared to have no answers. It’s quite an impressive turnaround given they were 0 for 13 with runners in scoring position in game one.
The White Sox slump is real and they look nothing like the team that started the season on fire to lead the AL. Michael Pineda (3-7, 5.24 ERA) will take on Miguel Gonzalez (1-4, 4.88 ERA) with neither pitcher instilling much confidence in their fans this season although Pineda has looked the better of the two recently.
He managed to strike out 12 Rangers batters and allow only one run in his last start and prior to that he allowed just the single run from two hits against the Twins. Definitely signs of improvement there and that’s where the confidence comes from that the Yankees can get the business done here and claim the series against the White Sox.
