Do the White Sox still have runs after last night’s massacre in Oakland? Or will the Athletics not hit the White Sox somehow? It’s time to find out!
As usual, Lucas Giolito is off to a rocky start, putting the A’s ahead 1-0 first.
Birthday boy Jason Benetti is out and Steve Stone is in Arizona. The booth is… weird.
Gordon & Len are so awkward in the cabin. I swear Gordon said less than 10 sentences

I believe I alluded to a similar result at the beginning of this article. I’m glad I’m not the only one to think that.
I told my father #WhiteSox will likely lose 2-1 tonight as they scored 14 points last night

Gio looks a bit better after three rounds.
Gio settles after that first. It’s time for some RUNS!

At least Sox Math keeps things interesting. The White Sox, however, are hitless through four.
So it’s the White Sox. Pruitt is without a hit through five.
It would be so good if the White Sox weren’t hit by the Oakland 2022 A’s

Sox haven’t been hit for 5 innings by a guy with a negative career bWAR in over 100 appearances.

Gio and his friends are fighting, once again…
Now 3-0 on Murphy’s ball into the gap that goes to the wall. Kemp scores from the first.
Andrus was unable to glove the relay thrown by Pollock. Not sure there’s a game, anyway.

Here’s Sam Sherman with the expert analysis.
I will say it if no one else says it would be a very bad game to lose.

THERE WAS A HIT!
And nothing happened. Dear reader, I know you are shocked.
I don’t think this recap is going to be very fun tonight.
It’s now the start of the ninth and still 3-0, A’s. Wait…what is this? A home run? ! It’s now 3-1, the A’s.
Yasmani Grandal walks in just in time for AJ Pollock to take over. Only one out.
Pollock smokes the ball, but after a challenge the call holds.
Andrew Vaughn gets a hit and RBI, and the Sox are back at 3-2.
Seby Zavala takes a bullet to the shin after going on a full count for the final.
There has never been a player happier to be hit by a pitch than Seby in this situation.

Romy González gets a hit after starting 0 for 3 and suddenly it’s 3-3!
Romy is my 2nd baseman – that’s the tweet

Don’t stop now, boys!
ELVIS! It’s now 5-3, White Sox thanks to a two-run brace from Elvis Andrus.
I almost feel bad for the A’s. I don’t, but almost.
As A fans watch AJ Puk crumble in a save situation where he gives up five runs in the top of the ninth, the Chicago White Sox sent Kendall Graveman AND Liam Hendriks to warm up in the bullpen. It is a very depressing type of poetry. #DrumTogether

Liam Hendriks is in the game and everyone is asking for an easy round.
Spoiler alert: He did the trick.
The White Sox improve to 8-3 since Miguel Cairo took over.
During this period: 6.09 points/game, 20 home runs.

Don’t check mine either.
I never doubted this team.
Don’t check my TL, though.
