The Chicago White Sox know how good Luis Robert is at hitting baseballs. He is good at everything but hitting is what is going to make him a lot of money in his Major League career. As of right now, it is hard to say that anyone on the Chicago White Sox is better than him.

The White Sox went into Thursday’s game with the Kansas City Royals in a 2-2 series tie. They needed to take this one to win the series and go to New York at .500. After going down 4-1 in the game, they came all the way back to get it tied.

Robert had the game-tying RBI in the top of the sixth inning. The game was now four all and Robert’s big-hitting was a big reason why. He was in a little bit of a funk over the last three games after winning the first game of the series but he is fully back now.

In the 8th inning, with the White Sox now ahead 5-4, Robert put an explanation on his day. Yoan Moncada hit a single one batter ahead of him to get a runner on. With a chance to break things open for the White Sox, Robert hit a very impressive home run to make it 7-4.

The Chicago White Sox are hoping to see more of this from Luis Robert.

That would be enough for the White Sox as they hung on to win the game by a final score of 7-4. Robert’s heroics were responsible for two of the three wins in the series victory over these pesky Kansas City Royals. Kendall Graveman and Liam Hendriks shut things down after Robert’s blast.

Vince Velasquez had a tough start as he is the pitcher that allow four runs to the Royals. He did, however, get the White Sox into the 6th inning with a chance to win and they did. It was impressive for the bullpen to shut the door the rest of the way.

Coming back and winning this game was extremely important for the White Sox. They haven’t fared well against the New York Yankees in recent years and now they have a three-game set with them in the Bronx.

Luis Robert was one of the only impressive White Sox hitters in their series against them last weekend so hopefully, he can bring that level of play again. This home run in Kansas City was special.

It didn’t even appear to be hit that hard and it just kept flying. He has a lot of development still to go and he is already this good. That is bad news for the rest of the American League. It would be nice to see him do more against the Yankees.
