White Sox drop another series at home as they fall to 10 games under .500 at Guaranteed Rate Field this season.
The Chicago White Sox dropped another series at home with a 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon. After their loss to Minnesota, the Sox sit at 3-13 at home and have the worst home record in MLB.
On Sunday, the Sox wasted a solid start from James Shields as he pitched 6.1 innings of no-hit baseball against the Twins. The bullpen was unable to hold the lead for the Sox and the team’s defense couldn’t help in keeping the game tied.

As the Sox were unable to hold a 2-1 lead in the seventh inning of Sunday’s game, the weekend series against Minnesota saw many ugly performances from the team. From Hector Santiago walking six batters in 3.1 innings pitched, to Carson Fulmer giving up four home runs, the Sox are certainly looking like a rebuilding team early this season.
The Sox have yet to win a series at home this year, and they’ve only won two series this season overall and both were against the Kansas City Royals on the road. This has been an incredibly frustrating start for many Sox fans, despite the clear expectations of this team not contending this season.
With the Sox sporting the worst home record in MLB currently, they still have time to improve upon their lowly record at Guaranteed Rate Field. However, unless they sweep the Pittsburgh Pirates in their upcoming two-game series starting on Tuesday, they will fail to win another series at home. The Sox will have an eight-game homestand after their brief five-game road trip starting on May 17 against the Texas Rangers.
Things can’t get much worse for this Sox team as they’re already sitting at 9-23 and in last place in the American League central division. The Sox don’t have the worst record in the AL as the Baltimore Orioles have an 8-26 record. However, if the Sox do finish this season with one of the worst records in MLB, is it really that bad for a rebuilding team? There will be some positive moments for the Sox moving forward, however, fans have to remain patient throughout this rebuilding process. Even it means more losses at home.
