The Blue Jays are firing on all cylinders at the moment and are in the midst of a six-game win streak which has improved their record to 28-20. The Blue Jays have scored six or more runs in five of their last six and have averaged 6.83 runs per game during this current win streak. The White Sox enter this game one game below .500 with a 23-24 record and dropped the first game of the Series in Rogers Centre 5-6. Can the White Sox bounce back after losing the series opener? Or will the Jays make it seven in a row?

Blue Jays vs. White Sox Line Movement

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Chicago White Sox Prediction

The White Sox have been dealing with injuries in the early part of the season, including tonight's game. Shortstop Tim Anderson is on the 10-day IL and is the team's batting leader with a .356 average, and is also the team's fastest runner. The loss of Anderson hurts immensely on offense, and Danny Mendick takes his position at shortstop for the time being.

The White Sox have struggled to put up runs over their first 47 games, more specifically in April. The White Sox went 8-12 in April while batting just .212. In May, their numbers improved to batting .252 and going 15-12. The White Sox have also shown one of the most significant splits against right-handed pitching to left-handed. The White Sox are batting .231 against right-handed pitching, which is 22nd in the league. They then jump to 4th in the league with a .258 average against left-handed pitching. The Sox have crushed lefties this year. They have 12 home runs off lefties in 298 at-bats and only 29 home runs in 1295 at-bats.

Tonight, the White Sox will face lefty Hyun Jin Ryu, who enters this game with a 5.48 ERA. Ryu had two starts in April, where he got banged up for 11 runs in only 7.1 innings before getting injured. His next start would be nearly a month later when he went 4.2 innings against the Rays with 1 earned run. Ryu has looked excellent for the most part in his last three starts, but the White Sox will be the toughest test for him this year, in my opinion, due to the way they crush lefties. The White Sox hit lefties so well because their lineup only has one true lefty hitter, the rest all being right-handed or switch-hitters. Ryu has given up an average OPS of .855 against right-handed batters, compared to just a .631 OPS against lefties. Ryu has also strangely been worse at home. Ryu has a 7.43 ERA at home over three starts and only a 2.79 ERA on the road over two starts. This isn't out of the ordinary either. Ryu had a higher ERA at Rogers Centre than on the road last year as well.

It's hard to fade the Blue Jays on a six-game win streak, but this line is lower today for a reason. The White Sox simply play an entirely different game against left-handed pitching, and Kopech has been dealing. Take the White Sox to end the streak at six.
