Red Sox Game Today: Red Sox vs White Sox Lineup, Odds, Prediction, Pick, Pitcher, TV Channel for September 10
The Red Sox open up a series in Chicago against the other Sox under inauspicious circumstances.
On Friday morning, news broke that Chris Sale, who was scheduled to start on Saturday against his former team, was the latest player to test positive for COVID.
Both Sox teams have exactly 80 wins, though their circumstances are quite different. The Red Sox are nine games out of first in the AL East, and the White Sox are in first place in the AL Central, ten or more games ahead of everyone in their division.

Red Sox Pitcher Today: Tanner Houck
Tanner Houck will go for Boston tonight. He has a 3.26 ERA over 12 games (10 starts) this season, and has struck out 62 batters across 49 2/3 innings.
Houck made his big-league debut almost exactly a year ago, and has faced the White Sox once in his 15 career MLB games. Over 4 1/3 innings, he allowed three earned runs on seven hits, including a home run. He struck out two and walked none.
His most recent start came against Cleveland, a scoreless five-inning gem with only three hits, no walks, and seven strikeouts. Of course, Cleveland is 10 games behind Chicago in their division, so the White Sox won’t be dispatched as easily.
The Red Sox have handled Houck with immense care so far in his big-league career, keeping him at low pitch counts and not letting him face the order a third time through. But with the plethora of COVID-positive pitchers, tonight might have to be the night when Houck’s training wheels come off.

Red Sox vs White Sox Prediction Today
The Red Sox will either be deflated by the Chris Sale news or they’ll have a chip on their shoulders that brings an angry win. Hopefully, it’s the latter. As usual, I’m picking the Red Sox, but this feels like a slugfest right to the end.
