#921 CHICAGO (KEUCHEL) +105 over LA Angels (Heaney) at 9:38 PM EST
Off last night’s 4-3 loss to the Halos, the ChiSox will bounce back with a solid effort in this American League battle.
Toeing the rubber for the Pale Hose will be left-handed LA killer Dallas Keuchel. In his career, Keuchel has made 18 appearances against the Angels (17 starts) and put together a tremendous 12-2 record with an elite 3.36 ERA. Equally impressive, in 11 outings for Chicago in 2020, Dallas was touched for only 14 earned runs and 52 hits in 63.1 innings of work. DK fanned 42 and walked 17 on his way to a 6-2 record with a solid 1.99 ERA.
Countering for manager Joe Maddon’s crew will be southpaw Andrew Heaney. Last year, Heaney started 12 games for the Halos and was cracked for 33 earned runs and 63 hits in 66.2 innings of work. Andrew walked 19 and whiffed 70 on his way to a 4-3 mark and a soft 4.46 ERA. This season’s spring training work wasn’t that great either. Heaney made five starts for LA and was slammed for 14 earned runs and 19 hits in 17.0 frames. That adds up to a lofty 7.41 ERA.
There are a handful of power trends that support this investment. Chicago has quietly won 26 of its last 36 against a left-handed starter including 10 of its last 11 on the road facing a southpaw. On the other side of the chalk line, Los Angeles has slipped in four of its last five against AL Central foes and four of its last five against left-handed starters.
The Sox have all the pieces in place to make a World Series run this year. Rest assured, manager Tony La Russa will have the Pale Hose focused and ready to bounce back after their season-opening one-run loss. Take Chicago with Keuchel. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
