Preview

Tonight we have the visiting Angels taking on the White Sox.  This will be the second game in this three game series, the White Sox took game one lastnight winning 9-3. The Angels come into this game with little to no hope to make the playoffs as they sit 10.5 games back of a wildcard spot. They haven't been able to rely on their pitchers and their offense hasn't perform well enough to make up for it.  The White Sox come into this game with a firm lead in the AL Central as they sit 12.5 games ahead of the Indians.  They will look to take advantage of a young pitcher tonight at home.    

Pitching matchup

Angels

Janson Junk (0-1, 2.45 ERA) will be on the mound for the Angels when they take on the White Sox.  Junk enters this game with a 1.91 WHIP and 4.93 XFIP.  This season he carries a 11.1% strikeout rate along with a 5.6% walk rate.  This will be the second start for Junk, in his first start he went 3.2 innings, allowing 2 homeruns.  He was hit hard in his last start and will have his hands full going up against a White Sox lineup that boasts a .206 ISO and .350 wOBA within their projected lineup against right handed pitching this season. Junk will be in for another long (or short) night.

White Sox

Dallas Keuchel (8-9, 5.33 ERA) wil toe the rubber for the White Sox when they take on the visiting Angels.  Keuchel enters this game with a 1.45 WHIP and 4.84 XFIP.  This season he carries a low 13.3% strikeout rate along with a 7.7% walk rate.  Keuchel has been bad this season as he just doesn't have the stuff to get guys out. He relies on his ground ball prowess, producing a 56.1% groundball rate.  Both sides of the plate have been able to produce quaility contact and power against him.  He comes into this game allowing 10 ER's in 8.2 innings in his last 2 starts.  Although this Angels offense isn't great, he will still have his work cut out for him in this one.

Prediction

The White Sox should be able to pick up an easy win tonight over the Angels but Keuchel has me a bit hesitant.  I think I will just attack the total in this one.
