The Chicago White Sox and Boston Red Sox meet Saturday in MLB action at Fenway Park. The Chicago White Sox look to build on their four-game winning streak. The Boston Red Sox need a win after losing five of their last six games.

The Chicago White Sox have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The White Sox have won seven of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Tim Anderson leads the White Sox with 29 hits and 9 RBI, while Jose Abreu and Luis Robert have combined for 38 hits and 17 RBI. Dylan Cease gets the ball, and he is 3-1 with a 2.48 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. Cease is 0-0 with a 11.05 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.

The Boston Red Sox have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or fewer runs in five of their last eight games. The Red Sox have lost 10 of their last 13 games when scoring three or fewer runs. Xander Bogaerts leads the Red Sox with 34 hits and 10 RBI, while Rafael Devers and JD Martinez have combined for 55 hits and 23 RBI. Nick Pivetta gets the ball, and he is 0-4 with a 7.84 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. Pivetta is 0-0 with a 2.25 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.

Dylan Cease has been wonderful this season, allowing 17 hits and eight runs in 29 innings. Nick Pivetta has allowed 25 hits and 18 runs in 20.2 innings. The Boston Red Sox can’t string together offense, while the Chicago White Sox are starting to look like the team we expected to see this season. The only spot I can lean is toward the White Sox.
