The Chicago White Sox had an impressive 10-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers, and Elooooooy Jimenez made another case for rookie of the year.
The Chicago White Sox are much better than the Detroit Tigers so it was really no surprise that they defeated them by a final score of 10-1. They broke it open when Eloy Jimenez hit a grand slam to put the White Sox way out in front. He is having an incredible year and he had another really impressive game to lead the Sox to victory. Dylan Cease, who came over from the White Sox from the Chicago Cubs with Jimenez, got the win.
Eloy’s home run was his 29th of the season. They were also RBI numbers 72, 73, 74, and 75 for the White Sox slugger. He is having an incredible rookie year and is firmly in the conversation for rookie of the year. His batting average climbs every single day and he inches himself closer to being one of the true elite hitters in the game if he isn’t there already.
Jimenez is in the running for American League rookie of the year with fellow rookies Vladimir Guererro Jr. of the Toronto Blue Jays and Yordan Alvarez of the Houston Astros. The White Sox would be thrilled to have a player win such an award and Eloy can do it with a strong finish.
Jimenez is going to be relied on for many nights like this in the future and he is going to deliver in all likelihood. He is a guy that is easy to root for because of his fun personality and how much he enjoys life as a professional baseball player. You can tell just by listening to him speak that he enjoys every minute of this and it is contagious in the White Sox clubhouse. He has such a bright future and the White Sox are banking on that.
This was a fun win for the team and they are back at it on Saturday night against the same exact Detroit Tigers team. Eloy is going to be looking to continue his strong play and try to get closer to that rookie of the year honor.
