Chicago White Sox: Game one vs Tigers is one to forget quickly
The Chicago White Sox lost Tuesday night’s game to the Detroit Tigers and it was just the type of game you want to see them forget. Lucas Giolito was brilliant on the mound until Tony La Russa left him on the mount too long later in the game. The 2-1 lead quickly became trailing 4-2 after Giolito ran out of gas. The White Sox were also unable to take advantage of a game that the Tigers absolutely begged them to win.
The Chicago White Sox need to forget about Tuesday night’s loss to the Tigers.
The Tigers committed a remarkable five errors in the first five innings and the White Sox only came away with two runs. Normally, they are able to put together 8-10 runs if the team plays that poorly. It didn’t happen for them which is something that they don’t need to hang their heads on. It was a frustrating loss but they get to play the Tigers two more times.
We learned about Luis Robert being out with flu-like symptoms not long before the first pitch and this feels like a game that he could have impacted. He is really starting to get hot with his bat but safety is the most important thing. Hopefully, he is able to get back as quickly as possible.
The White Sox started the game with Jake Lamb in leftfield and Leury Garcia in centerfield. It really makes you wonder what the deal is with Andrew Vaughn. He is starting to heat up as well but they are so set on playing the matchup game. It certainly would have been better to have him hit with two men on base in the 8th inning instead of Billy Hamilton. It would be nice to see Tony La Russa be better with his decision-making all around.
Luckily, baseball has a long season. This one stings but it does snap a four-game winning streak so you know that they were playing well coming in. Of all their losses so far this season, this one stands out as the most frustrating. Take the loss, forget about it, and go back tomorrow with Carlos Rodon.
