The Chicago White Sox played a somewhat strange game with the Los Angeles Angels. It was a game that had a lot of moments that lead to the White Sox getting it tied up in the top of the ninth inning. Once the game got to the bottom of the ninth, trouble loomed. They knew just based on the batting order that winning the game was going to be an extremely hard task.

Matt Foster was in the game to go up against Mike Trout. He struck him out which was a really nice way to get the inning going. That was about it as he allowed two base runners to get on before Jared Walsh came into the box to hit. Unfortunately for Foster and the rest of the White Sox, Walsh hit a baseball to Mars and sent the Angels off with a 3-1 record.

It is always heartbreaking when the Chicago White Sox loses like that.

It wasn’t the best game that the White Sox have ever played but they still had a chance to win the thing. It is heartbreaking when you lose a game like that after battling back but it happens sometimes. They are expected to be a good team so the 1-3 start isn’t ideal but it is certainly something to come back from. There is so much time left this season so the sky isn’t falling yet.

The White Sox know that they probably shouldn’t have been in that situation anyway. They were bad with runners in scoring position so you can’t get too mad when Walsh’s moonshot ended the ballgame because they had their chances. Walsh was put in a position to do that in large part because of the White Sox.

Walsh is clearly comfortable against White Sox pitching. That blast was his second of the game and both times he put his team ahead right after the White Sox tied it. When he hit the game-winner, he knew it was gone. That type of ice in the veins is fun to watch when it isn’t against your team. The White Sox needs to be so much better in every way going forward.

After watching that walk-off home run over and over again, it is clear that this team needs a fresh start. They are going to get that later tonight when they start a new series with the Seattle Mariners. It is time to get the season back on track.
