Holy moly, folks. It was a party in Oakland tonight. The White Sox scored early and often in a vulgar display of offensive power, besting the Athletics by a final score of 14-2.
In tonight’s Bird App Recap, I just want the pure, unadulterated joy to show through.
What follows is a collection of tweets in which the members of WST stood together, holding hands in a circle around a bonfire, singing songs of praise up into the late-night sky.
(Although, some of us were there physically.)
Elvis Andrus and Yoán Moncada started the game with back-to-back bombs, and didn’t let up for the rest of the game.

Back to back home runs? Is that allowed?— Tyrone (@TheTyronePalmer) September 9, 2022
We just want to bottle up the team the way they are right now and not change anything.

Can Rick Hahn change the locks on the #WhiteSox clubhouse doors at Guaranteed Rate?— Silvy (@WaddleandSilvy) September 9, 2022
I LIKE THIS WHITE SOX TEAM. KEEP TONY LA RUSSA AWAY.— Jefferi XCX (@starwart1) September 9, 2022
Dylan Cease’s O’ Slider Slide was dancing all night, and it was giving Cy Young.
Dylan Cease is the best pitcher in baseball right now. #WhiteSox— #Bears Gladiator (@optiongladiator) September 9, 2022
Ozzie: “I’ve never seen Dylan Cease pitch with a lead that big”— michael (@ducksensualll) September 9, 2022
Yeah I wonder the last time the Sox scored 10+ in a Cease start? Probably has never happened!
The hits start coming, and they don’t stop coming.

The first 4 home run game all season. My lord— Al (@baseball_gal_al) September 9, 2022
It was Andrus, it was Moncada, but it was also Roman A. González.
Romy Gonzalez is everything they told us Nick Madrigal would be and more— Dan Stevens (@thisdanstevens) September 9, 2022
Can Romy play RF— Nick (@Nick_BPSS) September 9, 2022
Our cup runneth over.
14 runs in the 6th inning— Mike (@ChiSoxFanMike) September 9, 2022
12 more runs and we can get back to that 0 overall run differential on the season.— Steve Kniss (@stevekniss) September 9, 2022
Let’s play Oakland forever— Tweet Sox (@WriteSox) September 9, 2022
And WST was happy, which was weird, but in a really good way.

And it looked like the team was, too.
