Chicago White Sox vs Pittsburgh Pirates 4/7/2023 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Chicago White Sox will meet with the Pittsburgh Pirates in MLB action in PNC Park, PA, on Friday, April 7, 2023, at 4:12 PM ET.

 

Prior to traveling to the Steel City for this series, Chicago was in action on Thursday afternoon when they hosted the Giants in the final game of a three-game set.

 

At 3-3 on Thursday, the White Sox were 1.5 matches back of Cleveland for first place in the AL Central.

 

Wednesday saw Luis Robert lead Chicago with three hits (two runs, two RBI), while Andrew Benintendi (two runs, two RBI), Yoan Moncada (RBI), and Gavin Sheets (three RBI) each chipped in with two.

 

Dylan Cease (1-0) won the victory after tossing 99 pitches and giving up one run on one hit, 5 walks, and 8 strikeouts. To ensure the victory, five relievers finished the game.

 

For the White Sox, Lucas Giolito will be making his second start of the year. He is winless with a 3.60 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, one walk, and 6 strikeouts on the season.

 

Giolito’s season debut, which took place on the road against the Astros on Saturday, had no bearing on the decision.

 

In a game that the White Sox ultimately lost 6-4, he pitched five innings, surrendering three runs (two earned) on five hits, one walk, and 6 strikeouts. Giolito faces the Pirates for the fifth time in his career.

 

  • The total went OVER in 6 of Chi White Sox’s last 6 matches.
  • The Chi White Sox are 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • The White Sox are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games with Pittsburgh.

Mitch Keller (1-0) pitched seven innings, surrendering just one run on four hits, 2 walks, and 7 strikeouts to secure the victory.

 

Rich Hill is taking the mound for his second start of the year, hoping to improve upon a difficult debut. He has a season record of 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, two walks, and 7 strikeouts.

Chicago White Sox vs Pittsburgh Pirates. The MLB pick for this game is the Pittsburgh Pirates. Having Thursday off gives Pittsburgh the upper hand over Chicago, who played at home against San Francisco.

 

Hence, less than 24 hours after the conclusion of Thursday’s match, the White Sox had to play, then drive to Pittsburgh to play a game.

 

The White Sox bullpen will suffer, especially after starter Lance Lynn only went 4.1 innings in the opening game. Pittsburgh’s good start was aided in part by their pitching staff’s better-than-expected performance.

 

Early on in the season, the White Sox were let down by that, which was disappointing. Pittsburgh benefits from having home field advantage and a brand-new bullpen. The Pirates will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
