The Blue Jays have lost two games in a row and are coming off a series where they lost two of three from the Houston Astros. The Blue Jays’ struggles have not come because of hitting.
The team is second in the American League in hitting with a .258 team batting average and features Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who is hitting .335 with 18 home runs and 47 RBI. He leads the American League in batting average and home runs and is one shy of the RBI lead.

Blue Jays vs White Sox Prediction & Pick
Who will win tonight’s MLB game:
Both of these teams are very talented offensively. The difference, however, is on the mound, and the Blue Jays don’t come close to matching the White Sox pitching. They are sending a rookie out on the road to face the league’s fourth-best hitting team, while Chicago is rolling a Cy Young contender. Lynn will be the difference-maker in this one, and the White Sox should win rather easily to take the series.
Free Pick: Chicago – 5 Toronto – 2
