@ The Boston Red Sox

The White Sox are now headed to Fenway Park to take on the defending World Series Champion Boston Red Sox. This is nothing short of a very tough series for the White Sox but it is also a very good test of where they are at.

The Red Sox haven’t been quite as good as they were in 2018 but at 42-37 they are starting to play much better. At 7-3 in their last ten games, they have been closing the gap in the Wild Card race and even the division race between themselves, the Tampa Bay Rays, and the New York Rangers. The White Sox are not far off at 5-5 in their last 10 and they are looking to improve on that.

Monday’s game will be White Sox ace Lucas Giolito vs Eduardo Rodriguez to open the series. The White Sox currently don’t have a probably listed, but whoever they go with will face David Price. Then on Thursday, White Sox pitcher Reynaldo Lopez will be up against our old friend Chris Sale. These are some really interesting pitching matchups.

The battle of the two “Sox” organizations is always fun and historic Fenway Park is a great place to see the battle go down. Look for Yoan Moncada to try and have himself a great series against the organization that traded him away as the number one prospect in baseball. They did win the World Series with Sale throwing the final pitch of the series, but Yoan wants to show them they made a mistake choosing to ship him out.
