The Chicago White Sox (27-35) will go head-to-head against the New York Yankees (36-26) in an exciting match at the Yankee Stadium. According to ESPN’s analytics, the Yankees have a significantly higher chance of winning at 65.8%.

Starting Pitchers:

For the White Sox, right-handed pitcher Mike Clevinger (3-3, 4.13 ERA, 1.39 WHIP) is on the mound. In 52.1 innings pitched, he’s accumulated 46 strikeouts, conceded 23 walks and 7 home runs.

On the Yankees’ side, right-handed pitcher Randy Vasquez (0-1, 3.86 ERA, 1.50 WHIP) will take the start. He has 6 strikeouts in just 4.2 innings pitched, with 3 walks and 1 home run.

Star Players:

The White Sox are led by Luis Robert Jr., who has 13 home runs and 30 RBIs, along with a .260 batting average. Andrew Benintendi also stands out with a .272 batting average, and Andrew Vaughn is a key contributor with 39 RBIs and a .249 average.

The Yankees’ star player Aaron Judge is one to watch, leading the team with 19 home runs, 40 RBIs, and a .291 batting average.

Key Stats:

In terms of team stats, the Yankees have the edge in home runs (96 to 63), OBP (.304 to .297), SLG (.420 to .387), ERA (3.68 to 4.69), and WHIP (1.22 to 1.36). However, the White Sox have a slightly better batting average (.239 to .234) and have scored fewer runs (265 to 289), which suggests that this could be a closely contested game.

In the last five games, the White Sox have won four and lost one, while the Yankees won two and lost three.


Given the Yankees’ superior offensive statistics and their significant edge in ESPN’s matchup prediction, we might predict a Yankees’ victory. However, considering the White Sox’s recent form and the unpredictability of baseball, the game could easily go either way. New York Yankees win 9-3.
