Run Line Game of the Week - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #976 Friday 10* Top Play Philadelphia Phillies Run Line -1.5 runs +105 vs Chicago White Sox @ 7:05 ET - The White Sox are off a 4-0 shutout loss yesterday and have now lost 18 of their last 23 games! Chicago has seen 16 of those 18 losses come by two or more runs! The Phillies are a big favorite here on the money line but that is why the play here is the run line. Not only are the ChiSox slumping, their losses have been coming by a multiple run margin! With their 10-2 win yesterday, Philadelphia has won 8 of its past 12 games. The last 4 wins all have come by 2 or more runs and have averaged a margin of victory of 4.8 runs per win. The Phillies will start Jason Vargas in this one and he has a 3.53 ERA in his last 13 starts and was very strong for the Mets (2.93 ERA and .208 BAA) in his home starts for them. Ivan Nova starts for the White Sox and though he enters off a pair of strong starts, both of those were at home. Nova has been getting absolutely crushed on the road. In his last two starts away from home he has allowed 10 earned runs in 10 and 2/3 innings. In his last 3 road starts, Nova has given up 24 hits in 16 and 2/3 innings. Look for this one to be all Phillies as they have the edge in the starting pitching match-up plus the home field edge plus Philly is the much hotter team while the Sox have been ice cold for a month now. By the way, the White Sox also rank in the lower third of the majors for slugging percentage against left-handed pitchers. 10* PHILADELPHIA Run Line -1.5 runs
