Houston Astros – Chicago White Sox Match Prediction | 14-08-2019
Hes striking out just 5.6 hitters per nine and walking 2.4 as his numbers have slightly improved. He has allowed over 10 hits per 9 innings for the first time since 2014. Despite all this, Nova has seen Chicago win his last four starts and in the previous six outings, the White Sox pitcher has a 3-2 record with a 2.79 ERA. Nova enters Tuesday with a 4.80 ERA through 24 starts and 138 2/3 innings.
Springer, Correa, and Bregman have all been popping off this week as well. Correa has been a steady producer in the heart of the order this year and continued his onslaught in Boston. Meanwhile, Bregman has seemingly gotten over whatever was impeding him to start 2019 and has seen his OPS rise to .958 and second on the team in recent days.
Cease won his last start after losing the previous four in a row, which came after tossing 5 innings of 2-run ball. He has been suffering from a bit of bad luck according to his peripheral numbers, but he certainly hurts himself with a BB/9 rate of 4.09. Cease had previously shown promise all the way up through the AA level, but faded somewhat at AAA, with that trend continuing after his recent call up. The White Sox will counter with rookie starter Dylan Cease, who is making just his 7th career start and his first against any team from the AL West.

He twirled 8 innings of shutout ball against Detroit in order to capture the win. He didnt do it with the best raw stuff either, only striking out 1 and walking three during that game. Nova makes this start for the White Sox after pitching one of his two best games this season. He has given up 4 or more runs 12 times out of 24 starts this year, but has also held opposing teams to 1 or less runs 10 times. Hes looked sharp is his past 4 starts though, which is easily his best stretch of 2019. Nova has been weird this season in that you seem to either get one dominant version, like what he brought against Detroit, or an absolute meltdown.
