|Home Team:||CHI White Sox|
|Away Team:||STL Cardinals|
This is a pick on the totals of this game.
Mikolas - the Cardinals pitcher who came back from Japan to join the Cardinals this season and has been named for an All Star team - never has faced the White Sox. He is 2-0 with a 1.99 ERA in five interleague games (three starts).
First baseman Jose Abreu is also a freshly named all star. It will be interesting to see how those two match each other. I tend towards thbe pitcher here and in return the Cardinals too won't hit hard Covey. He started well but has is 0-3 and holds a terrible 13.20 ERA in his last four starts. This is Covey's first appearance against St. Louis which I gather will go in his advantage.
So, if both pitchers won't be hit too hard for all kinds of reasons (two pitchers that have never faced the opposing teams is a good reason enough) - under is the play.
