.266

Yoán Moncada’s one-out, bases-loaded double to knock in two and get the game-winning rally started in the eighth inning helped catapult him to Friday’s game and White Sox MVP, with .266 WPA.

2

Tim Anderson’s two-RBI double to close out the scoring in the eighth fell approximately two feet short of being a home run. Had the ball enjoyed a touch more carry, the White Sox would have hit home runs in 16 straight games, the second-longest streak in team history.

Reynaldo López ran six of the 24 Detroit Tigers batters he faced in the game to 3-2 counts.

López had three-ball counts on eight of the 24 batters he faced in the game.

61

Despite those deep counts, López ended up just fine, burning through 111 pitches in just 5 23 innings, but ending with a 61 game score.
