Happy Sunday, friends! We’ve got another throwaway lineup with Michael Kopech on the hill for the White Sox. There is a chance to split the series with the Tigers, so let’s see if the Sox used up their run quota yesterday or not.
The Tigers are on the board early.

Michael Kopech is struggling early.
Michael Kopech opens the game with five-straight balls, followed by Javy Báez golfing a high fastball out to left for a two-run homer. He's sitting 90-92 mph so far— James Fegan (@JRFegan) July 10, 2022
Jacki is here with the truth. Hopefully, these players get some actual rest during the All-Star break.
Kopech is hurt. He’s been hurt since June 12th.— summer-themed jacki ☀️ (@zombie_jacki) July 10, 2022
This is a horrible combination of “put me in, coach,” and a broken organization that allows it.
The White Sox stay off the board in the first. They give up a run in the second.
Another TOOTBLAN for the White Sox. What do Daryl Boston and Joe McEwing do to help this team?— Herb Lawrence (@Ecnerwal23) July 10, 2022
Kopech continues to struggle, enough for a mound visit.
Trainer out to see Kopech, with Tony La Russa and Ethan Katz. Kopech has topped out at 93.9 mph. He's staying in the game.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) July 10, 2022
Everyone is on the struggle bus today.
White Sox scored 8 runs yesterday so obviously they are going to get shut down by Drew Hutchinson today— Michael Ricciotti (@Wh_Sox_Mike24) July 10, 2022
It’s still 2-0, Tigers.
Sox retired in order in the 3rd on 5 pitches. The White Sox Way.— BZ (@SoxInsane) July 10, 2022
Yoán Moncada knocks Leury García in to make it a 2-1 game in the bottom of the fifth.
Yoan Moncada been coming thru in clutch situations the last month or so for the #WhiteSox— TheMoncadaArmada (@HashTagWhiteSox) July 10, 2022
Jimmy Lambert takes over for Kopech in the sixth, creates a bases-loaded jam, and narrowly escapes it.

Gavin Sheets crushes a ball on a 3-2 count to tie the game.

Gavin Sheets has been tearing the cover off the ball ever since he came back from AAA. Time to give their hitting coach a promotion to the Sox and get Menechino out of here!— Mike (@ChiSoxFanMike) July 10, 2022
Bullpen ReyLo throwing 100 mph >>>>
Reynaldo Lopez needs more damn credit than he gets. He has completely turned it around— Jeff (@JStrazz22) July 10, 2022
Robbie Grossman drops Luis Robert’s fly ball to left and José Abreu is intentionally walked. AJ Pollock for some reason is pinch-hitting for Sheets with two on in the bottom of the eighth.
That was gross, man. Haha I’m funny.— White Sox Truther (@SamR33v3s) July 10, 2022
Robbie Grossman's 440-game errorless streak is snapped, as Luis Robert cruises into second base. His last error had been June 13, 2018.— Christopher Kamka (@ckamka) July 10, 2022
It was the longest errorless streak by a position player in MLB history.
But hey, the Pollock thing worked! Robert tags home from an RBI single and the Sox are up, 3-2, with two on and two outs.
MR FISH DOES IT AGAIN— whitest sox u'know (@god_of_Flannel) July 10, 2022
Eloy Jiménez got the memo as well, making it 4-2, White Sox.
Just saw Eloy high five Menechino. Ew. Don’t get his bad magic anywhere near you, Eloy.— Whitney. (@WhittyWestside) July 10, 2022
Liam Hendriks comes in for the save. No drama, please.
Thanks, Liam. Three easy outs, and the White Sox split the series with a Sunday afternoon win.
