Daniel Palka rains WPA; Chicago continues to feast on K.C.

Runaway Win: Even after Whit Merrifield drew the Royals within one run in the eighth, the White Sox’s win expectancy remained high.

With yet another win over the Kansas City Royals for the Chicago White Sox, let’s crack the Six Pack:

.211

With a 3-for-5 night with a double, two runs and an RBI, Daniel Palka accumulated a .211 win probability added, making him tonight’s MVP.

.462

In seven games this season vs. Kansas City, Matt Davidson has hit .462, with seven home runs. He sat on the bench for the entire game on Friday.

.950

Since Welington Castillo was sidelined while illegally training for the Tour de France with EPO on May 24, Omar Narváez has put up an outrageous .950 OPS.

18.8

With their sixth win in eight tries against the Royals, 18.8% (six of 32) of the White Sox’s wins have come against K.C.

61

Chicago’s 61 losses in 2018 are the most in franchise history before the All-Star Game.

67

With their 67th loss on Friday, the Royals have now lost as many games as Kansas City did in the entire 2015 season, when the club won its first World Series in 30 years.
