White Sox: What does no-hitter game mean going forward?
The Chicago White Sox are going to get hot because of the no-hitter game.
The Chicago White Sox are a pretty good baseball team at this point of the season. It feels pretty safe to say that they are going to be in the playoffs, especially with the new format that has more teams going to the postseason. At 18-12, they are tied with the Cleveland Indians for second place in the highly contested AL Central Division and 1.5 games behind the Minnesota Twins for first place. This is a lot of fun to watch and they also have a pretty favorable schedule coming up here.
Well, on Tuesday night, the White Sox may have been given even more of a boost. Lucas Giolito threw the 19th no-hitter in the history of the White Sox. It was a feat that nobody saw coming a few years ago but it lines up perfectly with his career trajectory at this point. It was the first time a White Sox pitcher threw a no-hitter since Philip Humber’s perfect game in 2012.
This could be huge for the mentality of the White Sox. They are a young team that is now figuring it out. They have so much talent that needs to keep growing and learning how to win. They have now won eight of their past nine games which are highly impressive numbers. This was a big moment in the season that might be able to fire them up just enough to get over the edge.
Now, nobody is saying that the White Sox are going to win the World Series this year but you never know. This team loves playing with each other and now they seem even more likely to come together for lots of wins. They seemed pretty fired up to get this done for their ace pitcher as everyone on the diamond contributed something huge.
Hopefully, this serves as the perfect spark in the middle of an already good run. If it does, this team could be very scary down the stretch here. There is no doubt that they are going to be very good for a long time. The only question that remains is how good can they get their record to be here in 2020. Tuesday night was a great sign of what’s to come.
