Chicago White Sox’s first baseman, Jose Abreu, dominates the Chicago Cubs.
The Chicago White Sox won another big game against the Chicago Cubs. It has been a big test for this young White Sox team as the Cubs came into it with one of the best records in the National League. They really aren’t as good as their record shows, however, and the White Sox are showing the world why they are on the rise to be much better. If you can just get to their bullpen with a tie game or a lead, you have a good chance of winning the ballgame.
One player who helped them do that was Jose Abreu. They were tied 2-2 with Kyle Hendricks still in the ballgame. Abreu took him yard to give the White Sox a 3-2 lead. They would pile it on their bullpen from there and end up winning the game 7-4. It was a great day that was powered by Jose Abreu’s three home run game.
Yep, you read that right. Jose Abreu hit three home runs against the Cubs last night and it was glorious. He is the true leader of the team and they need him to keep hitting the ball hard. It makes it even better when the rest of the team around him is capable of hitting the ball out of the yard. Yasmani Grandal also joined him on the home run sheet along with Luis Robert.
Other than the two home runs given up by Hendricks to Robert and Abreu, he pitched very well. He was doing a great job at painting corners and getting the easy outs. Meanwhile, the White Sox started Reynaldo Lopez after getting him back from injury. He pitched okay in 3.1 innings before they gave the ball to Gio Gonzalez for 3.2 innings. He was awesome and that combined to give the White Sox a great win. Evan Marshall and Alex Colome shut the door from there.
This was the type of game where everything good happened for the White Sox. They got the pitching they needed by committee, the offense they needed from their studs, and won the game fair and square. Jose Abreu was a monster once again against the Cubs. His numbers in his career against the Cubs are magnificent and he kept them going in this one. Hopefully, Abreu and the White Sox are able to take game three for the sweep and extend it to an eight-game winning streak.
