1 unit on Chicago +109 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.09) RESULT: WIN
Fourth straight road game for Oakland, on a 10-game trip. They look out of gas already, losing three of four, including a 12-4 decision in Texas on Sunday to clinch their first losing record since 2011. The Athletics are on a 3-8 run, as well as 7-19 on the road. Sonny Gray takes the hill with the team 1-4 his last five starts. The offense continues to slide, now down to 20th in on-base percentage. The Athletics are 15-36 against a left-handed starter, including 4-22 on the road, and face Chicago southpaw John Danks. Danks is off a victory at Kansas City as he held the Royals to one run with seven strikeouts in his second complete game of the season. He also has a 2.40 ERA in 12 career starts against the Athletics, including a seven-inning, two-run effort at Oakland on May 16. The White Sox are 21-10 against the AL West. Chicago swept three at Oakland earlier this season, and have won five straight and seven of the last eight meetings. With the Athletics 1-5 at Chicago, grab home field. Play the Chicago White Sox.
