Six Pack of Stats: Royals 6, White Sox 3

Avisaíl García had one infield hit, and one RBI — and with this Chicago effort on Tuesday, it earned him team MVP honors

Seven & Seven Is: A win expectancy graph looking like this is an easy recipe for a seventh straight loss.


This game was so flat for the Chicago that Avisaíl García, DHing and only driving in one run with an infield single, was the White Sox MVP, with .062 WPA.


The White Sox have scored four or fewer runs in eight straight games.


During Chicago’s seven-game losing streak, it has been outscored by 30 runs, 46-16.


When Brian Goodwin singled to lead off the third inning for Kansas City with the White Sox up, 1-0, it was the last play of the game when Chicago’s win expectancy was better than 50% (51.5%).


The White Sox, at 56-89, have a .386 winning percentage but remain at just a 99-loss pace in spite of the defeat on Tuesday. However, they will have to win seven of the final 17 games of the season to avoid 100 losses, which is a .412 winning percentage. Something might have to give.


Daniel Palka’s 22 home runs this season — tying a White Sox rookie record for lefties — have traveled an average distance of 411 feet.
