Chicago White Sox: Need a little bit of offense to get a win
The Chicago White Sox needs a little bit of offense at least in order to get a win.
The Chicago White Sox have a magnificent offense. Like anything, however, they are going to have a few nights during every season where they just don’t have it. They certainly had the pitching as Dallas Keuchel and the bullpen kept the Milwaukee Brewers to just one run over the nine innings. It was a brilliant game all around for the pitchers but the offense couldn’t muster up a single run to get it tied.
They certainly had their chances, however. That should make everybody a little bit more comfortable knowing that they at least threatened to get it tied and even take the lead on multiple occasions. They couldn’t get it done this one time and it snapped a 6 game winning streak. It is completely okay, however, as no baseball team wins every game. It is literally impossible so they might as well keep their heads up as they look to take the last game against the Brew Crew.
There were multiple times where Luis Robert, Yoan Moncada, Jose Abreu, and Eloy Jimenez hit the ball to the warning track on a colder than average Wednesday night in Chicago. That is quite a four-man punch and there are still so many more good hitters to name. This lineup is scary but nobody is perfect every single night. These guys will be back and ready to go tonight.
Speaking of tonight, it is the Milwaukee Brewers one more time this season. Gio Gonzalez gets the ball for the White Sox and Josh Lindblom for the Brewers. This is a much less favorable pitching matchup than they’ve had so the offense probably wants to show it. It would be nice for Gonzalez to just be good enough to support this offense. However, zero runs or even just one run pretty much supports no pitcher, just ask Jacob deGrom. The team has redeemed itself all year long and this will be no different.
