Six Pack of Stats: Blue Jays 10, White Sox 5

Matt Davidson builds a case for regular relief work

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Chicago White Sox
Permanent Groove: Two appearances, two scoreless innings for the designated hitter.

Only one Chicago White Sox pitcher has failed to surrender a hit in 2018 in spite of appearing in more than one game: Matt Davidson.


Nicky Delmonico had two triples on Friday night. He had one career triple (in 84 career games) heading into tonight’s contest.


Reynaldo López surrendered four home runs in his first four innings on Friday. As Chris Kamka observed, at the end of the fourth, López had a season ERA of 4.44. (López would record one more out in the game, but not before surrendering one more homer.)


With tonight’s 10-5 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays, the White Sox have now surrendered 10 or more runs in three straight games. In April, the White Sox had a streak of four games surrendering 10 more runs.

There have been nine streaks of at least three games surrendering 10 or more runs in White Sox history, four of them coming in the lost decade of the 1930s. Never in history have two such streaks come in the same season — until 2018.


Another hat tip to Kamka: Since 1980, the White Sox have had 14 different position players pitch. Their totals: 14 13 innings, six runs, 10 hits, 11 walks and five Ks, for a 3.77 ERA and 1.47 WHIP.


With Friday’s loss, the White Sox are 31 games below .500, a season low. It’s the third time this season they’ve been 31 games under.

After a loss like tonight’s, you might need to crack a second six-pack. Good news for you, @SouthSideSox was on fire tonight. The top six tweets, by likes:
