(Sponsored Post) Big White Sox Series Begins Tonight

The following is a sponsored post by Bet365.com. Check out their site if you get a chance.

Weekend momentum is often built in midweek series and, if the Yankees are going to beat Detroit this weekend, then a promising outing against the White Sox at US Cellular Field starting Monday is vital.

The season is starting to run away from us somewhat, with Boston now 9.5 games ahead, and with August in full swing, Joe Girardi has got to get this team winning baseball games. A series win over Chicago would certainly boost New York’s chances of a Wildcard spot – for let’s face it, not even the most optimistic MLB betting fan believes we can win the AL East now – and set the team up for a rousing weekend in the Bronx.

First up, tonight, we have Andy Pettitte throwing against Jose Quintana. Andy really needs a win after going 0-2 in his last three outings and he could get it against a pitcher with no great form of his own. Quintana has been hit an average 6.6 times in his last five games, earning 12 runs. Last season, he let go six runs off 25 at bats against Yankees players and fans betting MLB World Series should see the balls fly tonight.

As for the rest of the series, Hiroki Kuroda (10-6) has had a far more impressive season record than Chicago’s Chris Sale (6-11), who has lost each of his last three starts. Sale is playing a game of fine margins, having struck out 24 men in three games yet conceding 10 runs (and 24 hits) in the process. Yankees fans should have nothing to fear from this left-hander and the offense must take advantage of his bad form.

On Wednesday, CC Sabathia rounds off the series against another out-of-form leftie, Hector Santiago. Maybe Chicago manager, Robin Ventura, has his focus on a fourgame series with Minnesota this weekend, for he doesn’t seem interested in beating the Yankees.

We know all about CC and he should throw well, yet Santiago is a different story. The Chicago pitcher has not thrown a blank score in 10 games and surrendered two runs at Detroit this weekend. Although he has the ability to throw his team to victory, that has only come three times this season and he is unlikely to add a fourth against
CC.

Thanks for reading. We'll be back to our regular posts, including the latest on A-Rod, tomorrow.
