The Chicago White Sox lost but Luis Robert hit his first career home run.
The Chicago White Sox got pummeled by the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon. They were defeated by a final score of 14-2. The Twins proved this weekend that the White Sox have a long way to go before they catch them as they took two of three this weekend. They are the best team in either Central Division by far. There are a lot of things to learn from in this series but some history was made in the final game.
Luis Robert came into the season with so much hype. He has lived up to it about as much as he can so far in his short tenure. The White Sox may have lost on Sunday, but they saw their prized possession hit a two-run home run in the game for his first career home run. It was an awesome moment for the organization because it was a long time coming. A lot of time and money went into recruiting Robert to come to the South Side and it finally is paying off.
This home run is going to be the first of many for this budding star. He is a five-tool player that can impact a baseball game in so many different ways. Hopefully, his next one comes at a time where the White Sox can go on to win. This guy is going to make a big difference for this team as it tries to open its championship window.
Robert had a good weekend for the White Sox and he wasn’t the only key player to do so. Eloy Jimenez and Yoan Moncada were each incredible despite the 1-2 record. This is a trio that is going to lead this team for a very long time. It makes it even better that there are some other studs like Tim Anderson, Yasmani Grandal, and Jose Abreu are also there.
Robert’s historic first career home run was special for White Sox fan because they have been waiting for so long. Now, they have to move on from the bad loss and be ready for the Cleveland Indians tonight. Not every team is as good as Minnesota so things should really start to roll.
