The Chicago White Sox got a big win in Jonathan Stiever’s debut against the Detroit Tigers.
The Chicago White Sox are on a roll right now. They just completed a sweep of the Detroit Tigers and their fourth win in a row. It was a dominant performance again and now they are that much closer to clinching a berth in the playoffs. It was an awesome way to end the weekend as they end the season 9-1 against the Detroit Tigers. Jonathan Stiever made his MLB debut and it was a very respectable performance.
He had a short leash as he pitched 3.2 innings. He only gave up two hits and one run for a 2.45 ERA. He gave up two walks and recorded his first three career strikeouts in the big leagues. It was a great way to get his feet wet in the MLB as he looks to continue on to have a good career.
The offense got it done to help the cause as well as they were able to get five on the board. Eloy Jimenez had a big game with his 13th home run of the season which is always fun. He is amongst the league leaders in that category and he is just going to keep getting better. Nomar Mazara and Yasmani Grandal were the only two players in the starting lineup that failed to record a hit and Mazara is the only one who failed to reach base.
These wins keep coming and they are so fun to watch. The magic number is down to six and they officially hold the best record in the American League at 30-16. It is a beautiful sight to see when you click the postseason tab on the standings portion of the MLB app and the White Sox are right there at the top. Hopefully, they are able to sustain this and keep the wins coming. The pitching is good and the hitting is awesome. Next up is a major showdown with the Minnesota Twins. This series should have a major impact on the outcome of the division.
