TONIGHT'S PLAYS --
*0.5 UNITS* CHICAGO WHITE SOX (+155) AND *0.5 UNITS* UNDER 9 (EVEN)
Gavin Floyd shut down the Rangers last season, allowing 1 ER over 14 IP in 2 starts against them. He finished 1-1 against them, but with his 6 H and 2 BB allowed, his WHIP was a staggering 0.57 and he had allowed a .125 batting average to this mighty Rangers team. The loss did also come in his lone start at Rangers Ballpark, but he was pretty efficient in that game, allowing his 1 ER and a mere 3 H in 7 IP. In 2010 he had a good outing in his lone start there as well, as he went 1-0 there and allowed 1 ER on 5 H in 7 IP in that one as well. In fact, if you take away Hamilton's stats of 5-for-5 with 3 RBI against Floyd in 2010, the typical Rangers vaunted lineup including Andrus, Cruz, Beltre, Kinsler, Young, Hamilton and Murphy were a combined 1-for-35 against Floyd for the season. Yeah, 1-for-35!! In 2010, Hamilton and Young were a combined 7-for-10 with 3 2B and 4 RBI against him, but the rest of their aforementioned teammates were again a combined 2-for-12 for a mere 2B. Career-wise, only Hamilton has had any real success against him, with 6 H in his 10 AB against him, but the rest of his Rangers buddies from above are still a weakly 16-for-77 (.208) versus Floyd with 4 2B and 2 HR. On the other side of the hill, Harrison is 2-0 against the Sox in his career, and does carry a respectable 3.54 ERA against them over 5 career starts. He faced the White Sox twice on his home turf last season, posting a 1-0 record in those two games, but the Rangers were only 1-1, as he allowed 3 ER in both of them and 7 total runs in 11.1 IP against Chicago at home. As you would expect with the always slumping White Sox lineup, they didn't really post any eye-popping numbers against Harrison last season either, but Morel did have a good game against him, going 2-for-4 with a 3B, HR and 3 RBI. In their careers, Dunn, Beckham and Konerko are a combined 1-for-17 against Harrison, whiffing 4 times in that span, but Fukuodome, Ramirez, Rios and Lillibridge have actually gone 11-for-29 with 3 RBI against him in their careers. Nine should be just enough to keep this one under all game long, and hopefully we don't get burned by a late inning bullpen collapse and push or loss. The White Sox themselves are iffy, but they did show a lot of fight by picking up the come-from-behind win in the 9th inning of last night's game. Take a chance on the CHICAGO WHITE SOX and the UNDER to come through tonight.........
There you have it!! That will finish off our SUPER SUNDAY!!
Best of luck to all tonight!! Let's get that money!!
