The White Sox may have dealt a crippling blow to the Royals over the course of the last two days. These are the types of games that Kansas City has to win and win handily if it is going to make an impact on the playoff chase in the American League, especially with so many teams to hop. That’s four straight losses for the Royals at this point, and they haven’t scored more than five runs in a game since August 12th. That’s a lot of ‘under’ games for sure, and we aren’t ones to buck the trend. KC is batting just .253 as a team against left-handed pitching, and LHP Jose Quintana is one of the few this year that have really pitched well for the White Sox from start to finish. Add in there the fact that RHP James Shields is going to be dealing, and the makings are there for this to be a 3-2 ball game. Shields hasn’t pitched all that well of late, but he still has a 3.19 ERA for the season and has deserved a lot better than his 8-8 record suggests. Will he get a win tonight to get back above .500? We aren’t sure about that one way or the other, but we have a lot of confidence that this is an ‘under’ game waiting to happen.

White Sox @ Royals Pick 8/22/13: Under 7.5
White Sox @ Royals Score Prediction: Kansas City 3 – Chicago 2
