The Chicago White Sox made the game interesting during the late innings, but the New York Mets made the game theirs in the late-late innings during tonight’s extra-innings ballgame.
The shining star of tonight’s ballgame for the Good Guys is my guy, Yolmer Sánchez, who had himself a night! No. 5 stole his fifth bag of the season. He also went 2-for-2 with two walks — one of the intentional variety — and a run scored. Sánchez is here to stay on the South Side!
Noah Syndergaard pitched a whale of a game. He gave up five hits, struck out 11, and gave up zero earned runs (one unearned). Those stats totaled to a .105 WPA.
Josh Osich owned the worst WPA of the night at -.403. After giving up two homers in the eleventh, Osich ensured a Sox defeat.
Tim Anderson, No. 7, hit a sac fly with one out in the ninth to tie the game at two. To make deuces, the South Siders sent seven different pitchers to the mound. To score a triple, both teams combined to give up seven walks.
Jeff McNeil and Michael Conforto sealed a Mets victory with a pair of home runs in the eleventh, which accumulated a distance of 814 feet.
With one game to go in the month of July, the Good Guys have found the loss column 16 times in 23 games. That’s an astounding .696 losing probability.
