Michael Kopech’s ERA since the All-Star break at Charlotte is 1.29.
In a rare feat, not only were the three stars of Friday’s 9-3 win all Chicago White Sox, they were all hitters: Yolmer Sánchez (.29 WPA), Tim Anderson (.23) and José Abreu (.19).
Nicky Delmonico (RBI single, RBI ground out, three-run homer) had five RBIs against the Kansas City Royals on Friday, a career high.
After falling behind 3-0 in the first three frames, the White Sox rounded out the scoring with nine unanswered runs.
Abreu and Delmonico both hit three-run homers in the seventh inning. Delmonico’s, the second of the pair, had an exit velocity of 105.8 mph, 1.1 mph faster than Abreu’s.
Abreu’s home run, which put the White Sox ahead for good, traveled an estimated 418 feet — 13 feet longer than Delmonico’s clout.
