Minnesotas first 6 batters are my highest projected before a CWS batter even comes up.
Maeda has had extreme success against the White Sox while Reynaldo Lopez has had over a 6.8 ERA against the Twins.
Maeda actually hits RHB better than LHB and has over a 30% strikeout percentage against them. Add that to CWS are one of the worst teams against RHB I am all over the twins today despite their poor road performances
Kenta Maeda (2.43 ERA) has allowed only 31 hits in 55 2/3 innings. He has 63 strikeouts and only 10 walks, and he outdueled American League Cy Young favorite Shane Bieber in his last start.
Reynaldo Lpez (5.52 ERA) tossed five scoreless innings against the Tigers last time out. But he's struggled against the Twins this season, allowing seven runs (five earned) over 2 1/3 innings spanning two starts.
White Sox are the hotter team here but I like Minnesota in this game. Maeda has been too good of late to fade, I'll eat the -131 chalk.
The Guaranteed Rate Field has an open roof so weather should be considered for today's game. It will be Sunny with 16% cloud cover and a 0% chance for rain. The temperature is 67 with 51% humidity and winds at 17 mph NE.
