Eloy Jimenez had the game-winning RBI to send the Chicago White Sox to the playoffs.
The Chicago White Sox are going to the playoffs! it is really an exciting time to be a fan of this team as they have been through it all since the rebuild began. They missed on a couple of key free agents last year, they turned out to be blessings in disguise. They put a lot of faith in prospects, they didn’t disappoint. They were loyal to a few people along the way, it worked out big time. All of those things are big keys to them becoming a winning organization once again.
There is, however, the one knockout punch that delivered them their first postseason berth in 12 years. That was an RBI double by Eloy Jimenez. He might be one of the worst outfielders who ever lived but man can that boy hit. It was clutch hitting at the most important time and that run would eventually serve as the game-winner.
As you can see, he was extremely excited to be the one who potentially gets the game-winning run on the board. Now, Minnesota has one of the best offenses in the game and can score with the best of them but the Sox were able to hang onto this lead and win the baseball game. Jimenez’s arrival to the organization made the process that much easier so it was only fitting that he be the one to deliver the knockout punch to Minnesota.
Eloy is going to be a big part of this team for a long time. For a kid in his second year, he has so much patience at the plate which allows him to continuously take professional at-bats night in and night out. This was one of the rare times that he swung on the first pitch and it was a great decision. The good thing about Eloy is that he absolutely loves playing baseball so you can expect some more of this along the way as we inch closer towards the postseason.
