The Chicago White Sox won their game but lost Nick Madrigal to an injury.
The Chicago White Sox are officially on a six-game winning streak. They have really come along nicely after starting the season 1-4. It is nice to see them all the way at 7-4 now. They are hitting, they are getting good starting pitching, and their bullpen has come up strong. It is a lot of fun to see these guys really coming together and start to win baseball games. This win, however, came with a price.
Nick Madrigal went down with an injury. It is not great to see so early but he did end up leaving the game with an injured left shoulder. The White Sox informed everyone on Twitter that he will be examined further today in Chicago. Hopefully, it is nothing too serious and he can get back out there as quickly as possible. Edwin Encarnacion also left the game with shoulder soreness.
As far as the win, the Milwaukee Brewers went up 2-0. It didn’t last forever though because Eloy Jimenez hit a two-run home run to tie the game. Then in the seventh, Jose Abreu singled in Danny Mendick for what would stand as the game-winning RBI. That is the second night in a row that Jose Abreu made a major impact on the game. Jose joining all of the kids on the roster with elite hitting is a lot of fun to watch.
Lucas Giolito put together another really good performance. It really seems now like the Minnesota Twins lighting him up on Opening Night was a sign of how good their offense is. Since then, he has come in and been good. You can go back to being extremely confident when you know that Giolito is getting the ball. He is just fine.
They still have two more games against the Brewers but they are coming back to Chicago to play them. That means that the two games won in Milwaukee are considered a sweep. The Whtie Sox has officially swept two series in a row. Now, they will use Dallas Keuchel and Gio Gonzalez to try and take the two games at home. This streak is awesome and hopefully, they can keep it going.
