Chicago White Sox: Jimenez and Anderson are fully back
The Chicago White Sox got some help from their big bats that missed some time recently due to injury. They need this from them to win.
The Chicago White Sox got an awesome series win against the Philadelphia Phillies. They won their final game by a final score of 10-5. They had a big offensive output in this game and it was good to see because going into this series, they were struggling. They couldn’t get much of anything going with the bats in their previous few series and it was starting to get worrisome.
They won the series 2-1 and it was good to see them get a series win and game some steam back. The Phillies are a very good baseball team and are right in the thick of things as far as the National League Wild Card Game. They are going to be there all season long and it is good to see the White Sox get the best of them for a few games.
They got the win in the series finale thanks to some help from two guys they desperately needed to get going. Tim Anderson and Eloy Jimenez missed some time with injury and needed a few weeks to get back. They both struggled a little bit upon their return but both got back on track with a home run apiece in Sunday’s game. The White Sox present and future need both of these players to be successful so this is a great sign.
The White Sox aren’t going to be even close to a playoff team in 2019, but they do have a chance to be great in 2020. The rest of this season is about the right players playing well. The series in Philly was an example of the Sox winning games that the proper guys contribute. It is going to remain this way for the rest of the season.
The White Sox get right back at it when they visit the Detroit Tigers for a four-game series tonight. It is a series that will feature some good pitching for the White Sox as Lucas Giolito, Dylan Cease, and Ivan Nova will all see the mound in this one. The Tigers are 32-75 after losing three straight and are 2-8 in their last ten games. You would like to see the White Sox take care of business against a team like this but if you discount any Major League team you will get burned.
