The numbers can’t hide how miserable this Fan Appreciation game was

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports


Francisco Lindor had the game-winning RBI on Wednesday, a solo home run, on the third pitch of the game.


Terry Francona saw fit to call in his fifth pitcher of the night, with two outs in the ninth inning and a nine-run lead.


The White Sox and Cleveland used 41 players. Cleveland ran out 22, including five pitchers. The White Sox used 13 players and six pitchers. In related news, the game took 3:48 to complete.


With 13 strikeouts, the White Sox now have whiffed 10 or more times in 80 games, or 50.6% of the time.


Yoán Moncada had two hits but two strikeouts as well, bringing his season total to 214 — nine Ks short of the all-time record of 223.


Per @SoxNerd, the worst shutout in a home finale in White Sox history was a 7-0 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Oct. 6, 1908.
