The Daily Sweat: Double MLB Moose Alert in Chicago

The Highlights

  • The Pirates and White Sox (-101) squared off today with a total of 10.
  • Chicago led, 5-2, entering the ninth inning before closer Nate Jones fell apart, ruining the afternoon for both Sox and under bettors.
  • Despite collecting only three hits through the first eight innings, Pitt ended up scoring six runs (four in the ninth) on only seven hits.

The White Sox led, 4-0, after five innings, as the Pirates couldn’t put anything together against starter Reynaldo Lopez. While Pittsburgh did get two runs in the sixth, Chicago padded its lead in the eighth with an insurance run.

Leading 5-2 in the ninth, closer Nate Jones entered the game for the save. After two straight singles to start the inning, the sweat was on. However, after Corey Dickerson grounded out, both under 10 and White Sox moneyline bettors let out a slight sigh of relief. After all, Jones could even allow both baserunners to score.


Well, he did just that when the next batter, Elias Diaz, ripped a ground-rule double to cut the lead to 5-4. Now, the sweat was really on for those who bet the total and/or side.

Up steps Colin Moran and out went the ball.


The Pirates third baseman hit a two-run bomb to center to give the Pirates a 6-5 lead — shockingly putting both under 10 and Sox moneyline backers in red dot city.

Chicago inevitably went down quietly in the bottom half of the ninth to lock in the double moose. The Pirates — who had just three hits through the first eight innings — ended the day with six runs on just seven hits.

I just hope nobody out there had both the White Sox and the under 10. As someone who had the former, that stung enough for one afternoon. I couldn’t imagine taking two losses there. Betting on baseball is fun, right?
