The Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Angels made it through the first two innings without a score. From there, things went wild. Andrew Velasquez got things started with a home run to give the Angels a 1-0 lead.

Later in the same inning, Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani went back to back with solo shots and the Angels looked like they were going to make it ugly. However, the White Sox had other plans. Down 3-0, they decided to pop off for five in the top of the 5th. They didn’t look back from there.

They ended up scoring six more runs and won the game by a final score of 11-4. It was the type of game where everything went right for them and they desperately needed it. Losing the first two games of the series would have been a disaster.

First of all, Johnny Cueto deserves some credit. He went down early and looked like he was injured but he battled back and earned another win. He went 6.0 innings and only gave up those three runs on seven hits with a walk. He struck out five Los Angeles hitters as well.

If they can keep getting pitching like that from Cueto all season long, he will make a great number five the rest of the way. Joe Kelly, Matt Foster, and Jose Ruiz carried the load from there. It was a great day for the staff.

The Chicago White Sox should be really happy with how things went on Tuesday.

Everyone that was in the starting lineup reached base via a hit or walk at least once. Only Gavin Sheets and Andrew Vaughn went hitless. The offense was on fire which was really nice to see after some recent struggles.

Everyone in the starting lineup that got a hit had multiple hits. Tim Anderson, Luis Robert, and Jose Abreu all had three hits which is really nice to see. These are the guys that the White Sox need playing at a high level in order for the team to win. They need to keep it up.

This was a feel-good game for the White Sox players, coaches, and fans. It won’t get any easier, however, as they have to face a real good pitcher on Wednesday. Los Angeles has one of the most spectacular players in sports on the mound for this rubber match.

Shohei Ohtani is going to go from hitting a home run on Tuesday to starting for the Angels on Wednesday. He is going to face Michael Kopech who is the most electric White Sox pitcher as well. It should be incredibly entertaining.

In order to win this series (and the season series that is tied at three), one of the White Sox’s best is going to have to go out there and beat one of the Angels’ best. This is going to be must-see TV for all baseball fans.
