Yankees @ White Sox: New York looks to avoid fourth straight loss

Yankees @ White Sox MLB odds spreads and predictions

The New York Yankees have lost three games in a row, and now sit in second place of the AL East.

The Yankees' poor run continued after getting handled by the Chicago White Sox 10-2.

Luke Voit provided the Bronx Bombers with a lead in the first inning as he slugged his 17th home run on the season for a 1-0.

However, CC Sabathia struggled on the hill, allowing 10 hits and five earned runs in 4.2 innings with three walks and three strikeouts.

Some encouraging news for Yankees fans is the possible return of both Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton who are currently rehabbing in Triple-A, and are expected to rejoin the team next week.

The lowdown

Lucas Giolito has been a breath of fresh air for the Chicago White Sox.

Giolito allowed just four hits and one run in six innings pitched as he picked up his major league-leading 10th win of the season. Giolito has a 10-1 record with a 2.22 ERA in 14 starts.

Eloy Jimenez put on a clinic in Chicago on Friday night as he launched two separate three-run home runs, one in the first inning and the other in the sixth. Jimenez finished the night 3-for-5 with three runs and six RBIs.

Yankees @ White Sox Runline

Chicago is giving New York 1.5 runs in this matchup.

The Yankees may have lost eight of their 11 but in my eyes, the Bronx Bombers are due.

The White Sox are on a roll as winners of three in a row, but New York will have something to play for after losing control of first place in the AL East.

Take the Yankees with the points.

Yankees @ White Sox Over/Under

The over/under for this matchup is set at 9 points.

Final score prediction:New York Yankees 6, Chicago White Sox 5

Take the over in this game.

Where the game will be won or lost

Saturday night's pitching matchup will be Chad Green for the Yankees and Reynaldo Lopez for the White Sox.

Green has done his best this season to embrace his role as a spot starter with New York, but hasn't produce the way he would have hoped. The middle reliever has started just four games for the Yanks while bolstering a poor 8.27 ERA in 20.2 innings pitched.

Meanwhile, Lopez has started 14 games this season and has had just as little success. Lopez sports a 4-6 record with a 6.21 ERA.

Neither pitchers has impressive enough numbers for me to believe this will be anything other than a bullpen game. If Saturday turns into that, I'll ride with New York who has a significantly better pen.
