The Chicago White Sox don’t like playing the Oakland Athletics in Oakland. It seems to be their house of pain because it never goes well.
The Chicago White Sox are in a good spot as far as their rebuild of course, but they have started the second half of the season on a low note. They were defeated once again by the Oakland Athletics by a final score of 13-2. This stadium just isn’t a good place for the White Sox. They always get dominated and it isn’t very enjoyable to watch them play baseball there.
There really wasn’t much fun about it at all and was a miserable game to watch if you are a fan of the Chicago White Sox. They really didn’t have a chance from the start as they gave up a seven spot to the A’s in the first inning. Dylan Covey struggled and may have seen his last bit of action for a while with this performance. It doesn’t really matter if he makes more starts or not but he hasn’t had much success lately.
Moncada had his MLB leading 14 game hit streak come to an end in this one. That is just another long list of bad things that happened to the White Sox in this game. Anything that could go wrong did go wrong. It just wasn’t that much fun at all.
Now the series finale leaves a lot to be desired for the White Sox and the fans. It would be so annoying to have to watch them get swept. Reynaldo Lopez will go on the mound for the White Sox and he will face Brett Anderson of the A’s. It is an interesting matchup because Anderson has had a great season so far and Lopez has been up and down all season long. This game could either be a disaster or really good. They have a chance to end this series on a good note as they leave Oakland. We are all hoping for the latter.
