Yesterday was a surprising loss for the Chicago White Sox, because I actually believed they could sweep this current series with the Houston Astros.
The White Sox lost by a 6-5 score, so today’s winner will win the series. The White Sox won the first game on Friday by a 7-2 score.
Chicago (21-23) has yet to sweep a series this season, or win a three-game series on the road, so today could be the day against the 15-28 Astros.
“In the Sox’ 6-5 loss, it was a fifth-inning swing by Abreu that took manager Robin Ventura aback. Abreu finished the at-bat with a fly out to left, ending his day at 0-for-3 and, likely, his series.”
This is just more bad news for the White Sox, so maybe he’ll recover with some rest and the team and Abreu can go from there.
