The Chicago White Sox defeated the Boston Red Sox on Friday by a final score of 4-2. They got out to a 1-0 lead thanks to some good hitting by Tim Anderson and Jose Abreu. However, it was Luis Robert that broke things open for the White Sox as they were looking for their fourth straight win.
Luis Robert hit a two-run home run that was one of the longest home runs that you will ever see. He hit it over the Green Monster and out of Fenway Park completely. It was absolutely spectacular to see as the ball just would not stop going.
You knew it was a mammoth home run the second it left his bat. Even the announcers knew it was about to be one of those special home runs. You just don’t see something like that very often. We can only hope that it didn’t break anyone’s car windshield.
We all know that Luis Robert is already one of the most talented players that the White Sox have ever had at this age. If he stays healthy, he could absolutely be one of the very best players in Major League Baseball. The MVP conversation awaits him.
Luis Robert’s home run was absolutely incredible for the White Sox on Friday.
Luis Robert’s home run was huge and it put all baseball fans on notice. However, it would have been worthless if the rest of the team didn’t back him up. That starts with the pitching staff who did a very good job containing a very potent Red Sox offense.
Vince Velasquez started the game and had another really good outing. He went 5.0 innings with only one earned run against. He also only gave up three hits and two walks while striking out two batters. It was a perfect performance for a number five type pitcher.
Matt Foster, Aaron Bummer, Kendall Graveman, and Liam Hendriks mostly shut the door the rest of the way as they all only combined for one run against. Everything seems to be coming together for this team right now as they are 12-13 after winning four straight.
Robert is looking really good now that he is fully back from the injury that kept him out for about a week. He will look to keep it going later on Saturday against the Red Sox with a chance for his team to get back to .500.
Dylan Cease will be on the mound in this one looking to keep his magnificent season going. He will face Nick Pivetta who has had a rough start to the season as he has a record of 0-4 with an ERA of 7.84. We need to see more dominance from Robert, his teammates, and the pitching staff.
