After two straight days of disappointing baseball played by the White Sox, it’s time for game two against the Diamondbacks. Will the Good Guys turn it around? Does it matter if they do? Who knows, but the lineup tonight doesn’t give anyone faith that they will.
I legitimately think this is a worse lineup than all of 2018 https://t.co/tsKNq2tiuq— Maeve Marchessault ️⚧️ (@maevemarch) August 27, 2022
Lotta updates on the injury front
Tony La Russa expects Yasmani Grandal to be back next week.— James Fegan (@JRFegan) August 27, 2022
Leury García was supposed to spend the weekend in Charlotte but was called back early. La Russa said he didn’t want to play short on the infield with Yoán Moncada still not healed.
La Russa said Josh Harrison is also dealing with some bumps and bruises.— James Fegan (@JRFegan) August 27, 2022
Lance Lynn approached La Russa in Baltimore about going on bereavement leave. He should make his next start, next week against the Royals.
That’s it, I swear.
Davis Martin on the bump for Carlos Pérez’s first major league start
WAIT IT'S DAVIS MARTIN DAY pic.twitter.com/4vSMXN4Y2h— whitest sox u'know (@god_of_Flannel) August 27, 2022
A nifty double play started by José Abreu gets Martin out of the first with only one hit allowed.
Smooth double play turned by Abreu/Andrus/Martin. Leadoff single goes for naught for Arizona against Davis Martin— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) August 27, 2022
Two balls, two strikes, two outs, two men on base and Gavin Sheets gives a mistake from Merrill Kelly a ride to make it 3-0, Sox in the first.
Gavin Sheets hits a HR as the Bears score a TD? Chicago sports might explode.— Malört Rox (@StoneysBurner) August 27, 2022
A walk, catcher’s interference, and a single — and the bases are loaded with no outs in the top of the second.
Martin walks in a run, and the lead is cut to two: 3-1, Sox.

And next, a base hit from Geraldo Perdomo, and it’s 3-3, with only one out.
The fun lasted for about half an inning— Ali White (@aliwhitesox) August 27, 2022
A passed ball gives up a walk and a run, and it’s 4-3, D’backs.
Davis Martin is ungood— Dante (@DontizzleJones) August 27, 2022
A fielder’s choice gives up ANOTHER run, and the score is now 5-3, Arizona, but with two outs!
That’s enough, my wonderful wife and I are going out for cocktails and a nice dinner. Thanks, #WhiteSox— Mailman Jack (@MailmanJack65) August 27, 2022
Tony’s Boys should just quit.
Can we just forfeit the rest of the season? I am beyond embarrassed. Yet here I am, watching this stupid team.— Laura (@lakemiwsox) August 27, 2022
At least Carlos Pérez got his first hit?
Grandal better grab his golf clubs. https://t.co/JeSTUWYWei— The Last AirBENder (@BenChiTownKid98) August 28, 2022
A routine popup is caught by no one, and Daulton Varsho has an infield double!
Literally a Triple-A baseball team— Ali White (@aliwhitesox) August 28, 2022
Tanking time? Tanking time.

Vince Velasquez takes over for the Sox in the fourth.
Vinny Velo gonna turn the season around right here— White Sox Truther (@SamR33v3s) August 28, 2022
The White Sox are the root of every fan’s problems.
yeah i'm definitely starting therapy again— 20kJblond (@maryJblond) August 28, 2022

Uniformity is scary.
I love hat giveaways - but it’s a little disconcerting when everyone is wearing the hat at the same time— janice (@scuriiosa) August 28, 2022
Things happened, and it’s 6-3, D’backs.
Running on the pitch 3-2, Emmanuel Rivera scores from first on a Ketel Marte single that finds the gap to drop between AJ Pollock and Gavin Sheets. White Sox trail 6-3 in the fourth— James Fegan (@JRFegan) August 28, 2022

Mercifully, the game was extremely uneventful after the fourth, but the Sox apparently can’t hit or score runs anymore.
White Sox made D-Backs starter Merrill Kelly throw 28 pitches in a three-run first inning.— James Fegan (@JRFegan) August 28, 2022
He's pitched five scoreless frames since on just 55 pitches since.
That’s just good baseball, ain’t it?
Since Gavin Sheets launched a 3-run homer in the first inning, the Sox have two singles.— Chuck Garfien (@ChuckGarfien) August 28, 2022
D’backs get another in the eighth, it’s 7-3 for those guys.
White Sox need a touchdown on their next drive. Can't settle for a field goal.— Josh Nelson (@soxmachine_josh) August 28, 2022
Anyone would be better than Tony, but Chrystal might win it all for them.
After careful consideration, I have decided that I will take a stab at managing the White Sox.— Chrystal O’Keefe (@chrystal_ok) August 28, 2022
Sell the team, Jerry. Pretty-please.
SOMEONE JUST PUT UP A SELL THE TEAM BANNER BEHIND HOME PLATE— italian mortician addams (@marjraguso) August 28, 2022
Whoop dee doo, Romy González knocks in Elvis Andrus on a double, and the Sox have their first run in seven innings: 7-4, Arizona
Romy Gonzalez manages to split the outfielders for an RBI double to right-center. The White Sox trail 7-4 in the eighth.— James Fegan (@JRFegan) August 28, 2022
Some way, somehow, Abreu singles in Romy, and it’s now only 7-5.
Eloy hits a ball to the track that would have tied it, but instead Daulton Varsho catches it and ends the inning. Onto the ninth we go!
Kinda tired of Daulton Varsho.— Chrystal O’Keefe (@chrystal_ok) August 28, 2022
A single hits Joe Kelly and loads the bases with no outs in the top of the ninth, and Kelly is coming out of the game.
Joe kelly man— KENNY BASEBALL (@Kenny13aseball) August 28, 2022
Reynaldo López enters for the injured Kelly, and proceeds to give up a single that scores two, and it’s now 9-5, Diamondbacks.
We really got rid of half price Mondays and dollar dog Wednesdays for this.— Tyrone (@TheTyronePalmer) August 28, 2022
A sacrifice fly scores another, 10-5.
How do I buy the folks holding the “SELL THE TEAM” sign beers?— soxwood (@na_na_na_na_69) August 28, 2022
Game over. Sox lose, 10-5. Under .500.
Sox just lost a series AT HOME to the ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS— Steve Lim (@Lymb0) August 28, 2022
There are a lot of illnesses. Watching White Sox baseball is one of them.
Tomorrow is another day, but will it be better? Not for the White Sox.
Is it even worth watching Dylan Cease tomorrow? He’s not going to get any run support.— The Last AirBENder (@BenChiTownKid98) August 28, 2022
