The best pitching matchup on Sunday’s slate takes place today in the Windy City with Chris Sale and the White Sox hosting Marcus Stroman and the Blue Jays. Sale will be going for his fourth straight win which would extend his league lead, and he appears to be on the mound at the right time, as the White Sox are rolling.
- In 92 combined at-bats, Jays hitters have a .196 average vs Sale
- Chicago is 6-1 in their last seven games vs Toronto
- The Jays are 3-6 in their last nine games as road underdogs
Winners of six of their last seven games, Chicago is finally emerging from their slump after coming into the season hot. Sale had his way with the Blue Jays in a late April game where he allowed just one run in eight innings of work. Somewhat surprisingly, Sale’s 3.88 home ERA is almost double his 1.99 ERA on the road. He’s allowed eight home runs in seven home starts this season.
As for Stroman, his 5.23 ERA this season is enough evidence to prove he hasn’t been the ace the Jays need him to be. June has been his worst month of the season, as he’s gone 1-2 with a 7.89 ERA in four starts. In the April series vs the White Sox, he allowed four runs off six hits in a Blue Jays’ loss.
