The Chicago White Sox are all of a sudden back in desperation mode after a really good showing against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Baltimore Orioles, who are a way worse team than the Toronto Blue Jays, have given the White Sox all sorts of problems so far in this series.
The White Sox were defeated on Friday by a final score of 4-1. Michael Kopech was on the mound and he pitched okay but the offense was nowhere to be found. They had one measly hit that came off the bat of Jake Burger. Everyone’s bat has been quiet so far in this series.
Luckily, there is one thing to be excited about on Saturday. Lance Lynn is going to be on the White Sox mound. He is the perfect starter to go in a game that they really need to win. He brings a winning attitude in addition to the fact that he is just a really good pitcher.
Lynn is going to go out there and pump out three variations of a fastball. He will dare the Orioles players to hit this stuff and we will see if they are able to. They have won his two starts on the mound so far this season since he returned from injury and they need him again.
Lance Lynn is hoping to lead the Chicago White Sox to a much-needed victory.
The White Sox are going to face Spenser Watkins in this game. He has struggled in his Major League career up to this point. So far in 2022, he has a 6.00 ERA and a 1.70 WHIP. This will probably be another bullpen day for the Orioles.
We have to hope that the White Sox don’t make this guy (or any Baltimore pitcher) look like Clayton Kershaw in his prime. That is how it has gone for them a lot this season. If they can go up there and have good at-bats, they should be able to win. However, that should have been the case on Friday and they failed.
Look for the big boys to step up in this game. Luis Robert, Jose Abreu, and Tim Anderson have been too quiet with the bats in key situations. They are all set up perfectly to enjoy really good games on this Saturday afternoon. With Lance Lynn on the mound supporting them, anything is possible.
