Good afternoon! The White Sox have already claimed the series, but let’s see if they can sweep the Tigers and take some confidence to Houston. Here is today’s lineup.
The game started with a HBP for AJ Pollock.
Well that’s a way to start the game. Another player getting hit. #WhiteSox— ❣ ⚾️ (@lovexcynical) June 15, 2022
The White Sox opposing pitcher has over 10 pitches in the first inning. Story still developing.— BZ (@SoxInsane) June 15, 2022
With the hit-by-pitch for Pollock and a walk for José Abreu, Yoán Moncada steps up to the plate. A 93 mph fastball comes his way and Moncada smashes it out of the park to give the Sox a 3-0 lead. Twitter goes crazy.

One day I’ll tell my children that I saw Yoan Moncada hit a home run with 2 on and 2 out— Dump Ump (@DumpOnTheUmp) June 15, 2022
With the hit-by-pitch earlier and nearly taking Danny Mendick out, Alex Faedo has been a little wild on the mound for the Tigers.
If this pitcher’s control wasn’t all over the place to begin with, I’d swear he had a vendetta against AJ Pollock and Danny Mendick— colleen (@colleensullivan) June 15, 2022
Meanwhile, Abreu is building property on the Comerica Park grounds. You have to stay cool somehow.
The vibes are immaculate.

Even Vince Velasquez is looking good today.

Andrew Vaughn makes up for his first-inning flub with an off-the-wall double.
Andrew. Freaking. Vaughn.— Schlesspapi (@schlesspapi) June 15, 2022
The Sox don’t seem to mind the heat, because they are staying hot at the plate.
Sox start the third inning with a trio of hits. Abreu's single brings home Andrew Vaughn, who kicked things off with a double. South Siders grow lead to 4-0.— Vinnie Duber (@VinnieDuber) June 15, 2022
Honestly, this series has been so refreshing given what everyone was dealing with in the last two months.

When I tell you everyone is on it today, I mean that. Josh Harrison knocks Luis Robert in and it’s suddenly 5-0 Good Guys.

Brb, heading to Horseshoe.
It’s only the third inning, but the Tigers already have someone up and warming.
More like Alex FaeD'oh!— Matt Ramsey (@kdgg09) June 15, 2022
Oh hey, we have a Danny Mendick home run! A lot of the tweets were, uh, well... just use your imagination. It’s now 6-0 Sox.

Abreu continues to have a banner day/series/career against the Tigers.
I will accept apologies for all of the White Sox fans who were worried about Abreu now— #WhiteHotSox (@mmaxwelljr) June 15, 2022
Moncada is 2-for-3 and it’s 7-0. I don’t know what happened, but I like the mid-June White Sox.

100 mph off 92 mph fastball
92.3 mph off 93 mph fastball
102 mph off 88 mph changeup
Or could it be Lance Lynn lighting a fire under this team?
I'm starting to buy that Lance Lynn is the straw that stirs the drink for this team.— Bennett Karoll (@TheBennettK) June 15, 2022
Sure, it's against the Tigers but who cares? The #WhiteSox have needed this. Beat the inferior teams and don't apologize. Love the two-out offense.— Nick Murawski (@Nick_GGTB) June 15, 2022
We love a good 7-5 fielder’s choice groundout!
Left fielder AJ Pollock picks up a bloop single on the bounce, barehanded, and turns it into a forceout at third base.— Daryl Van Schouwen (@CST_soxvan) June 15, 2022
Another hit by Josh Harrison.
Is Josh Harrison going to make it a tough decision for the #WhiteSox next week? Rosters reduce on Monday and with the return of Tim Anderson, the final spot likely comes down to Danny Mendick and Josh Harrison.— James Fox (@JamesFox917) June 15, 2022
Harrison must’ve seen his job was on the line. pic.twitter.com/to21YRBNx4— The Last AirBENder (@BenChiTownKid98) June 15, 2022
Seby Zavala takes the Tigers deep with a two-run home run. I hope these bats stay hot in Houston.

A collective sigh of relief can be heard across Chicagoland.
We all needed and deserved this series.— Tweet Sox (@WriteSox) June 15, 2022
And Joshua is able to have a very happy birthday.
A White Sox slaughtering of the Tigers on my birthday? Thank you, White Sox. Thank you.— Joshua Tapper (@TapCityBaby) June 15, 2022
someone is going to completely miss that this joke— janice (@scuriiosa) June 15, 2022
Moncada is just a triple away from the cycle. Just sayin’
Yoan Moncada with his 3rd hit today— (@Sox_Nick) June 15, 2022
Adam Engel finally gets his first hit of the day (a triple!), making it 10-0. Every starter has had a hit now.
Gotta love watching Adam Engel run— Matty Jiles (@Mattyplayzbass) June 15, 2022
Scratch that. It’s hard to keep up with the runs!
Zavala collects an RBI on a groundout.— LaMond Pope (@lamondpope) June 15, 2022
Sox 11, Tigers 0.
Harold Castro is in to pitch for the fifth time in his career.
7th inning position player pitching!— Jason Benetti (@jasonbenetti) June 15, 2022
This seems... good?
AJ Pollock: 7th straight multi-hit game— Christopher Kamka (@ckamka) June 15, 2022
First 7-game streak by White Sox since Yoán Moncada in 2019.
Franchise record: 8 (done 8 times); most recently Magglio Ordóñez in 2003
This... not so much.
Lol Leury just struck out against a position player.... 16.5M/3— DJ (@WhiteSoxDJ) June 15, 2022
Kody Clemens — son of THAT Clemens — makes his debut on the mound. It was not great, but he’s an infielder, so what do you expect?
Your dad won 7 Cy Young awards and *that* is what you bring to the mound? Smh— Just Some Guy (@jeremylatzke) June 15, 2022
Again, not good.
Moncada brings in his fifth run and we’re well past blowout territory now. 13-0.
Friends, that’s a sweep! The White Sox improve to 5-1 vs. the Tigers.
