The Chicago White Sox had a fun game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Spring Training and it had some exciting moments for fans.
The Chicago White Sox kicked off Spring Training over the weekend. They were rained out against the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday which was a bummer but got it started off against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday with a 7-2 victory. Then yesterday, they had a 2-2 tie with the Los Angeles Dodgers. It is obviously just Spring Training but when certain guys play well it is only natural to get excited about it.
They were down 2-0 but some good play helped them come back and tie the game. Yermin Mercedes got the White Sox on the board when he crushed a solo home run in the seventh inning. It was really cool to see him come in and crush one early in Spring Training. It is hard to see how or when he will get to the MLB but it would be cool to see him force his way in.
Andrew Vaughn also saw some action in this game where he played well. He showed off his power to hit a double as well. This guy has all of the talents to be a Major League power hitter. We should be able to see him show off that skill throughout Spring Training. It is unlikely that 2020 is in the cards for his MLB Debut but he shouldn’t be too far behind. If all goes according to plan, Vaughn will join the big team full time right in time to do something special.
Spring Training has given this team a lot of hype. This one was the first of only a few games that will be on television. It was good to have Steve Stone and Jason Benetti back on our television screens. It is a shame that they are only on a few more times during Spring Training but it is what it is. All that matters is that the right guys continue to play well.
Their next action is some split-squad action later today. They have a game against the Cleveland Indians and a game against the San Francisco Giants. They are both at 2:05 PM central time. Things are officially fully underway this Spring.
