The Chicago White Sox played a terrible baseball game on Wednesday. It was a bad showing after a very nice win the night before. The Cleveland Indians lost earlier in the day so the magic number dropped to 14. The Houston Astros also lost so the White Sox say right behind them in the race for home-field advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Outside of that, there was only one other good thing to come from the day.

That is the play of Romy Gonzalez. The Sox called him up when September came around to help fill the void for some injuries. He has a great story coming into his MLB call up and he collected his first career MLB hit in this game against the A’s. It was an incredible moment for him as he will remember it for the rest of his life. We don’t know where the rest of the season is going to take him but he now has this under his belt.

Now that Romy has his first career hit under his belt, he can just play baseball with no worry. He is looking to make a good impression but the pressure is now off that he has the first hit. We will see how many more opportunities he gets as Tim Anderson should be back soon but he deserves every one of them.

Gonzalez worked hard to get to this point in his career so seeing him get that first career hit is huge. We have seen that for so many White Sox players so far this season which shows how healthy the organization is right now. With all of the elite players there in the lineup now, it is good to know that there is depth behind them.

The Chicago White Sox had one good moment in a game that was not very good.

It wasn’t a great game for the team as a whole as Dallas Keuchel struggled again. However, they can’t seem to keep the bats going in games where Keuchel gives up runs early. Oakland is a very good team that was on a four-game losing streak and they played like it in this one. It would be nice to see them take the series later today.

Romy might get another few games before the team gets a bit healthier so it would be cool to see him make another big impression. This was a huge step in the right direction for his career and more good moments are ahead for him in pro baseball. The White Sox now need to move forward and string together some more wins so they can clinch the division.
