It feels good to say this — the White Sox are fresh off a big win against the hottest team in baseball. Tonight they face off against the Twins and their new celebratory “Land of 1,000 Rakes” fisherman’s vest.
The Twins home run celebration mimics fishing, something fun you would do in a land full of lakes. The White Sox home run celebration involves putting on a coat and dumb-looking hat, a tradition held widely across Chicago— janice ✨ (@scuriiosa) May 3, 2023
The White Sox made a ton of moves today, ICYMI:
Here is how the guys are lined up today:
It is also Dog Night at the park.

The game started off with Michael Kopech looking good on the mound. He didn’t allow a hit and struck out two.
Kopech’s curveball looked fantastic in the 1st inning. Hopefully it’s a new pitch for him because he definitely needs one.— JeremyChiSox (@JeremyChiSox) May 2, 2023
Oh, and Andrew Benintendi has a catch for the highlight reels.
Here is another dog, the lovable Ziggy.
And Bean after the parade!
Gavin Sheets records the first hit of the ballgame in the second.
A hit?— Ryiin (@rfoto) May 2, 2023
Kopech is looking really good through three.
If Kopech keeps this up he’ll no-hit the Twins.— BZ (@SoxInsane) May 2, 2023
If this fails, we blame Scott.
Kopech has a no-hitter through four innings— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) May 2, 2023
Quick update. Still scoreless.
The no-hitter ends in the sixth.
It’s ALWAYS Byron Buxton— Kaylee (@__kaylee) May 3, 2023
This frazzled Kopech. Bases loaded.
twins batters are being extra dramatic tonight at the plate— emo Carmela Soprano (@marjraguso) May 3, 2023
Two outs, two on.
A single, two walks and a sacrifice fly gives the Twins a 1-0 lead in the sixth.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) May 3, 2023
The White Sox get the out at first and escape mostly unscathed.
Great job getting out of that, Michael.— PatfromtheBronx (@Patinthebronx) May 3, 2023
If the White Sox had a competent offense, I'd feel pretty good right about now.— Kindableu (@kindableu) May 3, 2023
I can’t be mad. His ERA dropped a bit too.
Michael Kopech: 6 IP, H, ER, 5 BB, 7 K, 0 HR, 51 of 89 pitches for strikes, with 12 swinging strikes.— James Fegan (@JRFegan) May 3, 2023
Fastball was jumping tonight, but walks will haunt.
Do it for Frankie.
Frankie is deep in thought wondering if the White Sox will score a run tonight. pic.twitter.com/yF3kx2S4zn— Josh Nelson (@soxmachine_josh) May 3, 2023
Not a hit, but that’s a start.
Anderson draws a 12 pitch walk.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) May 3, 2023
Doesn’t matter though.
The ‘23 White Sox hit more ground balls than any team of all time— Nick (@Nick_BPSS) May 3, 2023
Andrew B Nintendo kinda sucks.— Relocate the WhiteSox (@WhiteSoxGolfer) May 3, 2023
A base hit for Andrew Vaughn and an Eloy Jiménez home run puts the Sox on top, 2-1.
Old friend alert?

One foot in front of the other, one game at a time. ⛏️⛏️⛏️
Vaughn takes a walk.
BILLY HAMILTON IS IN!
Billy Hamilton pinch runs for Andrew Vaughn, who led off with a walk. Cheers were heard, and a few barks too, for Billy.— Daryl Van Schouwen (@CST_soxvan) May 3, 2023
Two stolen bases for Billy? We love it.
I LOVE BILLY HAMILTON— Al (@baseballgalal) May 3, 2023
Yaz steps up to the plate with runners in the corners. Naturally, he walks to load the bases.
yeah— did yasmani grandal walk? (@didyasmaniwalk) May 3, 2023
Who is up? Hanser Alberto ...
SURE WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE JAKE BURGER UP RIGHT NOW— Casey Boguslaw (@caseyboguslaw) May 3, 2023
Welp. Extra innings, despite bases loaded.
My guy Billy putting in all this work just to be left high and dry— Liam (@jesusplaysbass) May 3, 2023
Haseley and Alberto make the final outs in the biggest moment of the game. Be ever so proud Rick… #WhiteSox— Ryiin (@rfoto) May 3, 2023
They are pitching to buxton? Hope it works!— Cary (@ThatbasebaIIfan) May 3, 2023
