Monday Night Baseball: Eckel has picks for White Sox vs Tigers, Twins vs Brewers, A’s vs Angels, and HR shots

Chicago White Sox at Detroit Tigers starts at 7:10 pm, Minnesota Twins vs. Milwaukee Brewers is at 8:10 pm, and Oakland A’s at Los Angeles Angels starts at 9:40 pm

Mark Eckel

You win some, you lose some and some get suspended.

That was the Sunday plight as Seattle upset Colorado for a win; the Pirates lost 2-1 to Detroit for the loss and the Washington/Baltimore game was suspended.

Ronald Acuna did homer (twice), however, so that was a win.

Here are the picks for Monday.

Chicago White Sox at Detroit Tigers, 7:10 pm

Pitchers: Dallas Kuechel vs. Michael Fulmer

Odds: White Sox -150; Tigers +130

Minnesota Twins vs. Milwaukee Brewers, 8:10 pm

Pitchers: Randy Dobnak vs. Adrian Houser

Odds: Twins -110; Brewers -110

Oakland A’s at Los Angeles Angels, 9:40 pm

Pitchers: Sean Manaea vs. Julio Teheran

Odds: As -125; Angels +110

The Cycle

Single: The Tigers, the worst team in baseball a year ago, are playing well. But the White Sox need this game to get back on track and have Kuechel on the mound. The odds tell me a little bit too. Take the Sox.

Double: Dobnak and Houser are two good, young pitchers. The Twins have not been playing well of late, but could bounce back on the road against the Brewers. Take Minnesota.

Triple: Oakland is playing like it’s the best team in baseball. So ride the A’s while they’re hot.

Home Runs: Let’s take a shot with Jose Abreu, of the White Sox and Charlie Blackmon, of the Rockies.
