After Saturday’s game that was full of conflict and racist remarks directed at Tim Anderson from Josh Donaldson, the White Sox were fired up for today’s doubleheader.
As a Sunday tradition, Tony La Russa made sure to put a ridiculous lineup together for the opener, including the removal of Tim Anderson from the first game lineup. Rightfully, everyone’s reaction was “WTF?”
Tim Anderson and Yoán Moncada can only play once today but Leury Garcia and Josh Harrison will play twice. Tony La Russa should be fired. Too bad the front office doesn’t have that type of power. #WhiteSox— James Fox (@JamesFox917) May 22, 2022
I mean seriously, can we put together a decent lineup and roll with it??

The White Sox struggled with the bats for the first two innings of the opener, until Yoán Moncada blasted a [bunt] double down the third base line.
Yanks with a dramatic shift against Yoán Moncada that included four outfielders. So he bunts right down the third-base line ... for a double.— Vinnie Duber (@VinnieDuber) May 22, 2022
Do it every time, if you can.

Cueto pitched another six innings of shutout ball. Dallas who??

Joe Kelly came into the game with a no-out jam, and closed it out with two K’s and a pickoff, we simply love to see it.

Awwwww Aroldis Chapman got pulled in the ninth? What a terrible shame.

Time for the nightcap, and it’s officially TA7 hours. Naturally, Yankees fans were as mature and rational as ever.
Booing Anderson is absolute trash— Nick Stellini (@StelliniTweets) May 22, 2022
Yankees fans booing Tim Anderson lol, he lives rent free in their heads.— Mike (@ChiSoxFanMike) May 22, 2022
ESPN broadcast did something ... good?
I’m liking how the ESPN broadcast team is handling the Donaldson situation. Again, don’t tell someone of color how to feel about racism. Glad the broadcast crew mentioned that.— PGD (@Repthat773) May 22, 2022
Michael Kopech was on the mound, and was as dominant as ever — just absolutely shutting down the Yankees.
Michael Kopech:— Christopher Kamka (@ckamka) May 23, 2022
Retired last 13 batters last Sunday vs Yankees
Retired first 14 batters tonight at Yankees
That's 27 in a row... a hidden perfect game... against the Yankees!
His perfect game bid through five was finally broken up with two outs in the sixth, but the Yankees didn’t fare any better after that.
15 up, 15 down for Michael Kopech tonight. pic.twitter.com/jMi9a3bt6f— MLB (@MLB) May 23, 2022
*Yankees get one hit*— Ali White (@aliwhitesox) May 23, 2022
Announcer: “And the Yankees have gotten to Michael Kopech!”
This is becoming a Kopech love fest, and I’m not sorry.
If my math is right, Michael Kopech has allowed two hits in 12 innings this season against the best team in baseball.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) May 23, 2022
The #WhiteSox had two starting pitchers that just combined to throw 13 innings of 7 hit, no run ball IN YANKEE STADIUM.— Herb Lawrence (@Ecnerwal23) May 23, 2022
Johnny Cueto was good
Michael Kopech was even better.
Kopech for Cy Young campaign holding strong.

The offense was pretty terrible throughout the game, not that it’s a shock to anyone.
Bases loaded, surely this will end in several runs!— White Sox Truther (@SamR33v3s) May 23, 2022
Narrator: It did not end in several runs.
I hate it here— Ali White (@aliwhitesox) May 23, 2022

I regret to inform New York that Tim Anderson now owns the Yankees.
