White Sox come up short in their season opener against the Kansas City Royals. Here are some observations about Opening Day for the Sox.
The Chicago White Sox came up just short in their 5-3 Opening Day loss to the Kansas City Royals on Thursday. Although they entered the ninth inning of a game that was delayed by close to two hours due to rain with no runs scored, the Sox managed to cut it close after scoring three runs.
However, with the bases loaded and the chance to take the lead, the Sox would end their Thursday night with a season-opening loss at the hands of the Royals. The Sox were unable to provide any run support for their starting pitcher and couldn’t solve Kansas City’s, Brad Keller.
With the loss, many Sox fans were reminded of some of the bad play they’ve seen from this franchise throughout this decade. The Sox sure aren’t expected to have a winning season, but getting off to a sloppy start on Opening Day won’t inspire much confidence in an already frustrated fanbase.
There are 161 games left to play and Sox fans shouldn’t panic about this season based off of Opening Day. The Sox did show some positive signs on Thursday although they couldn’t come up with a win. Here are some observations from Opening Day that most Sox fans shouldn’t ignore.
