Chicago White Sox vs Kansas City Royals Game 2 5/17/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Chicago White Sox will meet with the Kansas City Royals in MLB Game 2 action in Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium, Kansas, on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, at 7:10 PM ET.

 

With a slow start, including a difficult series against the New York Yankees over the weekend, Chicago fell far short of preseason predictions to repeat as AL Central champs, but they got off to a good start this week with an extra-innings year.

 

Andrew Vaughn led off with a sacrifice fly in the third inning, and Yasmani Grandal followed with a home run in the fourth. After Kansas City rallied to tie, Luis Robert’s 10th-inning homer sealed the deal.

 

Johnny Cueto was summoned for a spot start and pitched six scoreless innings, surrendering only two hits and two walks while striking out seven batters.

 

Ryan Burr earned the victory with a scoreless ninth, and Liam Hendricks sealed the deal with his 10th save by striking out the side in the tenth. Grandal and Robert each had multiple hits, while Jose Abreu, who was struggling, reached base three times.

 

  • The White Sox are 4-0 in their last 4 road matches with the total set at 7.0-8.5. 
  • The total went Under in 8-1-2 of the White Sox’s last 11 matches against a team with a winning % below .400.
  • The total went Under in 3-0-1 of the White Sox’s last 4 road matches with the total set at 7.0-8.5.

Chicago White Sox vs Kansas City Royals Game 2 Predictions 5/17/2022

 

The Royals almost pulled off another turnaround in extra innings on Monday after earning the rubber game in Colorado on Sunday with a dramatic late rally.

 

The Royals tied the game in the eighth inning with a two-run double by Whit Merrifield, who later scored on an Andrew Benintendi single, only to come up short in the tenth.

 

Brad Keller pitched seven innings and struck out three batters while allowing three runs on eight hits. Scott Barlow took the loss after surrendering two runs (one earned) in 1.2 innings of work. Merrifield reached base three times, continuing his hot streak after an abysmal start to the season.

 

With its dismal start, Kansas City is down a large amount on the money line, although the run line is marginally better at 15-18. After going under the betting total of nine runs in Monday’s opening versus Chicago, the overs are even at 16-16-1.

 

  • The total went Under in 7-1-1 of the Royals’ last 9 matches against American League Central.
  • The total went Over in 3-0-1 of the Royals’ last 4 matches with the total set at 9.0-10.5.
  • The total went Over in 5-1 in the Royals’ last 6 matches overall.

Chicago White Sox vs Kansas City Royals. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago White Sox. Whether Giolito or Dylan Cease starts for the White Sox, they will be in a good position to take care of things against one of baseball’s poorest lineups.

 

Even though Chicago faltered thus far, it is still far superior to Kansas City in every way, and a club with as limited pitching strength as the Royals will have trouble in the doubleheader.

 

In his early career, Heasley has a 104 ERA/147 FIP and did not demonstrate he can go long into games, which will put too much pressure on the Royals’ already poor bullpen, which might be further depleted in the second half of a doubleheader.

 

The White Sox are just too good to continue playing like this, and even in their current form, they are capable of handling the Royals in this game. The Chicago White Sox will win to a predicted score of 5-3.
