Mission accomplished: The Chicago White Sox have regained a winning record this spring at 6-5!

Dylan doesn’t cease to amaze me in his second start of the spring:

The only run he gave up was via the long ball during his 16-batters-faced performance. If Cease can carry this freight with him to Chicago, it is going to be a very fun season!

For the Brewers, Brandon Woodruff put together a very solid, three-inning performance, only giving up one earned run as well.

The Sox and Brewers were stuck in a 1-1 tie, as relievers were dominating on both sides of the equation. However, when the seventh inning came rolling by, the Sox took advantage in a three-run burst!

Andrew Vaughn continues to hit, driving in Leury García with a single.

Then Luis González doubled home Vaughn and Danny Mendick to put the Sox up 4-1.

For good measure, Andrew Romine added an RBI triple in the eighth to secure a 5-1 victory for the Good Guys!

The pitching continues to dominate during this spring, and the Sox’s notorious late-inning 2019 offense emerged for this afternoon’s ballgame. It may only be spring training, but it is definitely fun to win!

Tomorrow the White Sox will travel back home to Camelback Ranch to host the Colorado Rockies for a 2:05 CT start. Drew Anderson (0-0, 4.50 ERA) takes the bump for the Good Guys, and Peter Lambert (0-1, 2.25 ERA) will represent Colorado on the hill. The game will be streamed at whitesox.com.

I might be a little biased, but the best part of the game? The conclusion many of you have been waiting for: the resurgence of an old friend!
