Phillies Look to Prosper in Interleague Game with White Sox

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 7/11/2013 6:52:03 PM

The Philadelphia Phillies are starting to enter the grey area of the season as they are seven and a half games back in the NL East and the halfway point in the season has already passed meaning teams should know their plan the rest of the season. For the Phillies however, that could be blurred as they could either go all out for one last playoff run or simply begin trading off their older players and officially begin the rebuilding process.

The Chicago White Sox on the other hand have a clear view they are out of the playoff race and should begin looking towards the future since the team they currently have constructed isn’t good enough for today’s competition. It is important for sports gamblers to know the thinking of management as the White Sox now will be playing for nothing whereas the Phillies will be playing for everything the next few weeks.

The Phillies will be starting this game off on a good note as Jonathan Pettibone will be their starting pitcher and although he has been struggling slightly lately he is still 5-3 on the year with a 3.84 ERA. Pettitbone will be in for one of the easier challenges of the year as the White Sox struggle on offense meaning he should need minimal support from his Phillies teammates who have failed to put together a seriously threatening lineup. The Phillies rely on Domonic Brown for most of their offensive production but have also seen a recent jump in production from Ben Revere who is now hitting .302 on the year and .390 in his last ten games.

The White Sox should be nervous about sending John Danks to the mound as he not only has struggled this year to the tune of a 4.31 ERA in his nine starts, but also because Danks has gotten progressively worse each of the past three season’s and the start to this one doesn’t appear to be breaking that trend. Sports books will most likely be predicting a low scoring game for the White So as they have had almost no offense all year long and will be relying on a solid start from Danks to carry them to a win. As a unit the White Sox have the second fewest runs in the majors this season and the biggest reason for that is the .248 team batting average and .299 on base percentage showing they are aggressive at the plate yet fail to get many hits.

MLB Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Phillies hold the pitching advantage, however their will be less pressure on their starter Pettibone to have a quality start as the Phillies have a more capable offense than the White Sox and can score runs in more than one way. On top of that, the Phillies are still fighting for a division crown and playoff spot which makes them a smarter sports bet and my pick to win this game.
