The Chicago White Sox are 4-2 to start the season after taking each of their first two series. They defeated both the Detroit Tigers and Seattle Mariners two games to one and it was a lot of fun watching them do it.
They could be 5-1 if not for a horrid collapse in the ninth inning of the first game. With that, their loss to Seattle on Thursday was a well-deserved win for the Mariners. Now, the focus turns to a three-game series at home against the Tampa Bay Rays.
It is going to be a little bit different for White Sox fans trying to catch the game on television. Instead of being on NBC Sports Chicago, the game is going to be broadcasted on Apple TV Plus. It will be the first time that the White Sox are featured there.
It is a part of Friday Night Baseball which is a new thing on Apple TV. Different teams across the league will be featured each week. It will be free to watch and the game begins at six o’clock PM central time.
The Chicago White Sox have a huge early-season series with the TB Rays.
It is going to be a celebration of Jackie Robinson Day across Major League Baseball as well. Every player in the league will wear number 42 as they honor the first black player to ever play in MLB. It is the 75th anniversary of his arrival so this is a big celebration.
Everyone should have it set up and ready to go so that there is no confusion when it comes to game time. This is going to be a phenomenal game between two American League World Series contenders.
Dylan Cease is going to be on the mound for the Chicago White Sox and he will face Drew Rasmussen. Cease was dominant in his first start last week and the Sox are hoping to see more of that from him in this game.
The White Sox are going to need their offense to bounce back after only scoring one run in their previous game against the Mariners. Getting to Rasmussen early and often might be the key to their success in this one.
The Tampa Bay Rays, as mentioned before, are an outstanding team so getting a win in the first game is very important to winning the series. It is going to be a lot of fun to watch so make sure you have your Apple TV Plus ready to go. Again, it is free to watch tonight.
