The Chicago White Sox are facing some heartbreak because of Jose Ramirez’s clutch home run.

The Chicago White Sox are in a tough spot after a very tough game. They played well in a playoff-like game against the Cleveland Indians. It was as intense as it gets in a season like this and it feels like one team is gaining some steam while the other team is losing a bit of steam. The White Sox were able to compete in a pitchers duel against this Indians team who might have the best staff and bullpen from top to bottom in the whole league.

Reynaldo Lopez was brilliant and all of the bullpen arms were pretty much awesome. The White Sox took a 3-1 lead in the top of the 10th inning and really looked like they were going to win the ballgame. Well, after some issues on the mound they allowed the Indians to rally and walk of the White Sox one half-inning later. Jose Ramirez hit a walk-off home run to give the White Sox their most disappointing loss since the rebuild began.

The fans seem to agree that this was the most heartbreaking loss in recent memory. Only when you are a good baseball team are you able to feel these kinds of things after bad losses. Jose Ramirez is an MVP candidate that beat you in an extra-innings game. As tough as it is to watch, Ramirez is truly having a great season for Cleveland.

After this crushing loss, the White Sox now only lead the AL Central by one game. There are five games to go and their magic number to win the division is four. The Minnesota Twins walked off the Detroit Tigers in extra innings as well so the White Sox just had a bad night in general. Hopefully, with Lucas Giolito on the mound, they are able to win another great pitching duel as Shane Bieber takes the bump for Cleveland.
