Chicago White Sox vs Tampa Bay Rays Predictions 8/20/2021

 

On the Tampa Bay side, the Rays dominated the Baltimore Orioles in a four-game set battle this week. The Rays secured the first two installments at 9-2 on Monday and 10-0 on Tuesday while shutting down the Orioles in the third outing on Wednesday. In the series finale, Tampa extended their winning streak and closed the series by a sweep at 7-2 on Thursday. The Rays started the game with an impressive 7-0 lead after four innings resulting in a 7-2 victory over Baltimore while hitting seven shots on Thursday. Pitcher Shane McClanahan made a good start with one earned run on five hits with one base on balls while striking out eight hitters of the Orioles in pitching for 5.0 innings in the victory. Second Baseman Brandon Lowe led the charge for Tampa with two runs on a double and drove two RBIs while Left Fielder Austin Meadows and 1st Baseman Ji-man Choi contributed two RBIs each in the winning effort.

 

Tampa Bay will counter with righty Michael Wacha to take his post on the bump to start the opener of a weekend series versus the White Sox on Friday. In his appearances on the mound this year, the right-handed thrower is 2-4 with a 5.91 ERA while awarding 24 free bases and striking out 76 batters.

 

Chicago White Sox vs. Tampa Bay Rays. The MLB Pick for this match is Chicago -120. Though the White Sox will take on the Rays on the road, Chicago got the edge as Tampa Bay will be sending a struggling starter on the mound in Michael Wacha. The right-hander marked a 5.91 ERA after allowing 18 runs on 30 hits in just 14.0 innings of play and that will make it easy for the White Sox bats to gain a bunch of runs in picking up the road victory on Friday. The prediction: The Chicago White Sox will win at 8-4.
