The Midwest’s best will take center stage on “Sunday Night Baseball” when the Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers duel in Wisconsin.
Though White Sox starter Lance Lynn ranks second in MLB in ERA among qualified starters, he has made just six road starts this season and has not been as dominant — posting a 2.84 ERA with 4.5 walks per nine innings and opponents notching a .314 on base percentage. At home, he has a 1.50 ERA and .225 opponent OBP.
Brewers starter Brandon Woodruff ranks third among qualified starters in ERA, with a .832 WHIP, which is No. 1. He has a 6.8-1 strikeout-to-walk rate at home and opponents overall are hitting .168 off him.
The Brewers entered the weekend averaging 5.2 runs per game in June and July after averaging 3.76 runs per game in April and May. In the past 30 days, the White Sox’ bullpen is 5.20 while the Brewers lead the league in that span with a 2.41 ERA. It adds up to a win brewed up for the home team Sunday night.
The play: Brewers, -125.
