The White Sox had a much-needed day off and made it to Colorado to take on the Rockies. The air is thin, the altitude is high, and hopefully, the White Sox can adjust before they move on to the next city.
Here is how Tony La Russa put the lineup together for tonight’s game.
Some fans made the trip to see the White Sox — and perhaps get some autographs, too.

As usual, the Sox aren’t starting off hot.
The White Sox love to make mediocre RHP look like Cy Young winners.... https://t.co/bkNdjzu8qY— Jon (@jonklemke) July 27, 2022
Michael Kopech isn’t off to a great start, especially with keeping his walks down. In 1 1⁄3 innings, he’s walked three.
Kopech has got the old Dylan Cease lack of command— Jimmy (@JGRAD99) July 27, 2022
Crisis thankfully avoided, after a bases-loaded, one-out inning. But barely.
WST when Kopech is lights out: Fuuuuuuture.— The Last AirBENder (@BenChiTownKid98) July 27, 2022
WST when he struggles: He’s cooked. Put him back in the pen!
A very loud “let's go White Sox” cheer erupted during AJ Pollock’s at-bat. There were two on and just one out.
There are a lot of Six fans at Coors Field— Lori Ann Sanders (@SandersLoriann) July 27, 2022
AJ Pollock knocks Eloy Jiménez in after a fumble by the Rockies. Leury García loads up the bases with a single. Still one out, 1-0 Good Guys.
We all know how this ends, though. Adam Engel struck out, and Tim Anderson grounded out. Three are left on base. A lot of glass is half-full and glass is half-empty on Twitter.
Well. At least we got a run….— PatfromtheBronx (@Patinthebronx) July 27, 2022
Ugh - gotta get more than 1 there ♂️— La Pantera Blanca (@whitesoxken) July 27, 2022
We’re in the bottom of the fifth now and the White Sox only have one run, still.

Thankfully, the White Sox infield finding opportunities to record double plays are aplenty.
Defense showing up tonight!— #WhiteHotSox (@mmaxwelljr) July 27, 2022
I hope they can keep it up, if Steve Stone is correct.
Did @stevestone just say Jose Ruiz is throwing in the pen? Why? It’s a 1 run game and there was a day off yesterday, shouldn’t it be ReyLo, Kelly or Foster?— The Soxtrich (@MattOB2) July 27, 2022
Jimmy Lambert, thankfully, took over for Michael Kopech, but the Sox kept the double plays coming.
DPS FOR EVERYBODY— Matt Ramsey (@kdgg09) July 27, 2022
Yasmani Grandal started 3-for-3, and Yoán Moncada knocked in Engel to put the White Sox up, 2-0. That haters are too stunned to speak.
Grandal and Moncada haters have been silent lately— Megan (@SouthSideMeg18) July 27, 2022
Joe Kelly isn’t doing great, and I don’t want to talk about it right now, so I’m going to give everyone a wholesome break.

This next tweet is best summed up by a screenshot of my timeline.
Here is Herb, with some fun trivia.

Some good news, as Liam Hendriks attempts to shut out the Rockies:
I’d prefer a drama-less ninth but alas, Hendriks gives up a run.

I’m not so sure Liam trusts his fastball right now.— Steve Morck (@YourBoyStove) July 27, 2022
After a lot of Hendriks drama, the Sox are back above .500.
Nice win because that would have been an incredibly bad loss.— North Side Sox Pod (@NorthSideSoxPod) July 27, 2022
The Chicago White Sox are now over .500 for the first time since May 25th when they were 22-21.— Vinnie Parise (@VinnieParise) July 27, 2022
This upcoming stretch is huge for them. Amazing close win. Go Sox
