My Prediction: Phillip Humber has been a nice bright spot in the White Sox rotation this year. He has a nice 3.10 ERA and his WHIP is under 1.00. Brandon Morrow has been a big disappointment for the Jays. He’s still striking out over a batter an inning, but his ERA is over 5.00 and his home ERA is a disastrous 7.36. Morrow got lit up by the Sox last year at home to the tune of 7 runs in only 4 innings. That was one of the few wins Chicago has got in Toronto over the last couple of years. They are 3-14 in their last 17 in Toronto. The Jays are 13-4 in Game 1 of a series including 9-2 when coming off a loss. I think Morrow throws his best game of the year tonight and the Jays win.
