(MLB) NY Yankees vs. Chi White Sox, 05/12/2022 8:10 PM, Score: 15 - 7
Money Line: -150.00 Chi White Sox (Home)
Result: Loss
8* Chi White Sox (8:10 ET): The White Sox got an unexpected off-day on Wednesday when their game was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the Guardians’ organization. They’ll take it, but this has also been a hot team (won 7 of its last 8) heading into this big weekend series vs. the Yankees. I know New York has looked like the class of the American League thus far (22-8, +52 run differential), but tonight’s matchup favors Chicago, at home, with Dylan Cease on the hill.

Cease has made six starts so far in 2022 and the White Sox are 5-1 in those games. He’s posted a 2.38 ERA and 1.00 WHIP, but recently has been even sharper, turning in a 1.50 ERA and 0.778 WHIP his L3 starts and all of those have been White Sox victories. At home, Cease has a 3–0 TSR, 1.45 ERA and 0.643 WHIP. So this is exactly who Chicago would want on the mound when getting set to face a team like the Yankees. Keep in mind that the White Sox “should” be on an eight-game streak right now; in their only loss during that stretch, they blew a six-run lead in the ninth inning.

The Yankees have won 15 of their last 17 and are coming off a pair of wins over Toronto. But they had to come from behind both games to beat the Blue Jays. On Tuesday, it was a 3-run HR by Aaron Judge in the bottom of the ninth. Yesterday, they were actually outhit. Note that while the Yanks are 14-4 at home this season, they are “only” 8-4 on the road. This will be Luis’ Gil’s first start of the season at the big league level. He pitched down in the minors on Friday and allowed two runs in five innings. While the White Sox are rested, this will be the Yankees’ sixth game in the last five days. 8* Chi White Sox
