Jose Abr1eu hit a clutch home run to lead to a Chicago White Sox victory.
The Chicago White Sox are red hot right now. They have won five in a row now after this big win over the Milwaukee Brewers. This team started off poorly but they had some learning to do against the Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians. They were humbled early but now it seems like they know what they need to be competitive in this league. Well, Jose Abreu is certainly starting to catch fire and he came up clutch in this one.
When the White Sox were down 4-2 in the seventh inning, they needed a few guys to come up clutch. Well, Luis Robert found himself on base before Jose Abreu hit a towering game-tying home run. It gave the White Sox a big boost and they were able to take advantage from there. They got some wild pitch offense to take a 5-4 lead and then a Yoan Moncada solo shot made it 6-4.
This offense is a group that is never out of a game. Carlos Rodon left the game early due to injury and the bullpen was a little shaky at first. They came together to be solid but not before they were down on the scoreboard. Well, once the White Sox got it tied and eventually took the lead, they shut the door the rest of the way. This team needs all hands on deck to win baseball games and that is what they got in this game against the Brewers.
The game is now, as mentioned before, their fifth victory in a row. Their offense has scored 26 runs in the last three days which is a fantastic number. They really need to keep that up. The good news is that now they get Lucas Giolito and Dallas Keuchel in their next two games. Those two are there to be studs at the top of the rotation so we will see what happens.
It is good to see Jose Abreu do what they needed to get the game tied. We can’t talk enough about how important Yoan Moncada and Luis Robert were to this victory but Jose had the clutch game-tying hit. In order to lead the American League in RBIs as he did in 2019, you need many moments like this. This should be a sign of things to come for Abreu and the White Sox.
