It’s Pride Night at the ballpark. For an organization that does so many things wrong, we can be proud that they’ve got one thing right.
Estrogen Power Hour was in the house and representing well.
In addition, White Sox Twitter is celebrating a couple of births ...
I share a birthday with the face of the franchise. https://t.co/42sCeBa4oy— Jason Benefield (@jasonbenefield) June 24, 2022
... and a couple of deaths.
So, we’ve got a lot of Charlotte Knights (and even a Birmingham Baron) in the house.
Johnny Cueto continues to win the hearts of White Sox fans, and started the game off pretty well.
Reminder this guy was riding horses at home before getting picked up. https://t.co/V1eHLY71lW— Tripples of the Nova (@danielrtripp) June 24, 2022
Johnny Cueto Game 1 Starter— Tyrone (@TheTyronePalmer) June 24, 2022
And, hey! The defense even showed up for a little bit!
(In spite of themselves.)
It is strange to take a career CF in Pollock and play him in LF while putting Garcia in CF tonight.— Sox In The Basement (@SoxInTheBasemnt) June 24, 2022
Not for the White Sox, just for good teams that are run properly. This is normal for the Sox.
But the offense was nowhere to be found.

Even when the Sox tried to get something going, third base coach Joe McEwing made yet another bad send, ending their threat to score in the Soxiest way.
They’re a really, really badly coached team https://t.co/RX61ChWsKs— Nick (@Nick_BPSS) June 24, 2022
I'm sorry the more they happen the funnier it gets. Jow McWavin.— SoxOptimist (@OptimistSox) June 24, 2022
It was so bad, even Orioles’ social media team was dunking on the Sox.
The dichotomy was a bit too much for some of us.

It didn’t help that the Orioles outfield put on an absolute clinic.

How are all these Orioles running max-effort all over Guaranteed Rate without their leg tendons exploding?— Carl Skanberg (@CarlSkanberg) June 24, 2022
We thought Lenyn Sosa could be our Thursday Night savior ...
Lenyn Sosa time!!!!!— Mike (@SoxMike242) June 24, 2022
... but when Sosa struck out in his first major league at-bat, our expectations plumetted.
Send him down.— Steve Kniss (@stevekniss) June 24, 2022
Friends, we scored zero runs against the Baltimore Orioles. Zero. None.

This game wasn’t part of the plan.
