Happy NASCAR Night at the ballpark!
Also, happy birthday Tim Anderson, and welcome back!
He’ll be in lineup tonight. Gotta play on your 30th birthday. https://t.co/Dqgdw5jaaj— Daryl Van Schouwen (@CST_soxvan) June 23, 2023
Or not? TA not in the initial starting lineup.
Pedro Grifol said Tim Anderson threw today for the first time since Saturday. TA reportedly feels good — maybe good enough to play — but Sox don’t want to push him after testing the shoulder out as rigorously as he did pregame. He could possibly return to the lineup tomorrow.— Vinnie Duber (@VinnieDuber) June 23, 2023
Wait, wait. Tim’s IN!
And ... playing second base?
Tim Anderson playing second base tonight. Grifol announces.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) June 23, 2023
Tim Anderson is IN the lineup tonight playing 2nd base. Pedro Grifol meeting media now, “don’t read too much into this. This is about tonight and trying to win a baseball game.”— Ryan McGuffey (@RyanMcGuffey) June 23, 2023
Says plan remains to be back at shortstop. This is a change for tonight. #WhiteSox
But like, what if he has to throw a ball from behind the bag at second?
Tim Anderson tested out his shoulder. Said he could play second base tonight. Easier on his arm for now.— Chuck Garfien (@ChuckGarfien) June 23, 2023
Grifol: "He wants to be a part of this."
He'll move back to shortstop when his shoulder is better.
Well, let’s find out together!
FYI, I am watching the Red Sox broadcast, for those following along at home.
Lineup change:— Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) June 23, 2023
CF Robert Jr.
C Zavala https://t.co/wZFse4VOrZ
Giolito looking sharp early; pitches around a Yoshida single, just to update anyone not in the ballpark yet.
3 minutes after first pitch. Insane. pic.twitter.com/MHeZeSJ3Ul— White Sox Truther (@SamR33v3s) June 24, 2023

White Sox go down 1-2-3 in their half of the first.
There’s that legendary White Sox chase rate.— Trooper Galactus (@TrooperGalactus) June 24, 2023
Brayan Bello with 2 strikeouts in the 1st.— Tyler Milliken ⚾️ (@tylermilliken_) June 24, 2023
Filthy changeup against Luis Robert.
And it’s 1-2-3 for the other-colored Sox, but with this little nugget from the Red Sox broadcast team when talking about Lucas Giolito’s trade value.
Red Sox broadcast just reported that at this time the White Sox are telling teams that they are only talking about players in the last year of their contracts for trades.#WhiteSox— White Sox Twitt3r (Is Baby Hippo) (@SoxTwitt3r) June 24, 2023
Trade value going up, by the way.
Giolito has a one-hitter through two innings.— BZ (@SoxInsane) June 24, 2023
Tell me if you’ve heard this one before: White Sox offense takes a first-and-second, no-one-out situation, yet fails to get runs across.
We’re on to the third on the South Side, 0-0.
Red Sox score on some vintage #WhiteSoxDefense.
Anderson can’t corral the pickoff attempt.
Red Sox runner turns out to be very fast.
Oh my god.— Josh Nelson (@soxmachine_josh) June 24, 2023
sooooo David Hamilton is pretty fast huh (he did this after stealing second base, by the way) pic.twitter.com/300Vg07D6D— Jared Carrabis (@Jared_Carrabis) June 24, 2023
Many people are saying this.

I have to check the fine print of the bylaws, but this logic checks out.
We have to win a game when Zavala has a hit in an 11 pitch at bat, right?— Mark Hoger (@HogerMark) June 24, 2023
Tim Anderson gives back to the cause, 1-1.
TA’s first career sac fly!— Millennial Sox Fan (@MillennialSox) June 24, 2023
Benny certainly seems to have a way of hypnotizing viewers into seeing something different than the numbers will tell you.
there are 6 players on the White Sox with a higher wRC+ than Andrew Benintendi and OB just said he was one of their best hitters— hvt (@redsoxandstuff) June 24, 2023
Elvis Andrus will not be outdone, committing his own error for the Sox infield.
our middle infield is non existent— john (@notknotjohn) June 24, 2023
Rafael Devers hits one to the freaking moon, and it’s 3-1, bad Sox.

Devers may have found some external motivation prior to the game.
On a positive note, I am an unadulterated Bryan Ramos stan and I can’t wait to see him get a shot with the big-league club.
The Rafael Devers game.
Oh mama! What a DP there started there by Devers! 5–4-3 is a great combination! Just beautiful! #dirtywater— Missing The Point (@MTP_pod) June 24, 2023
Hard to argue:
But also true:

Andrus drops another one on a stolen base attempt.
Red Sox with a runner in scoring position with no outs in the fifth.
Why can nobody on this team catch a ball— Mike (@ChiSoxFanMike) June 24, 2023
Gio follows up by drilling Hamilton.
Two on, no one out.
Not all Lucas’s fault, but a good question as the pitch count builds.
So why is there no one up in the pen Pedro?— Dante (@DontizzleJones) June 24, 2023
Gio battles his way out of the fifth unscathed.
Hey, how are you feeling Gio?
Lip reading Lucas. Did I get it right? pic.twitter.com/rGUzJxHWVk— FitzMagic (@CheapSeats411) June 24, 2023
We don’t know what it is, but we’re dying to find out.
Let’s all ask Jacki as soon as we can!
Sox strand a two-out Benintendi double to end the sixth.
@zombie_jacki invented a new stat. Make sure to ask her about it— Celeste Spaghetti ️ (@C_Spaghett1) June 24, 2023
We interrupt this recap for an absolutely un-hittable Lucas Giolito changeup.
Lucas’ night likely done, though he leaves on a high note, striking out the side in the sixth.
The #WhiteSox have to find a way to sign Lucas Giolito. He’s dealing out there and for most of this season. 10Ks with only 1ER, BRILLIANT— Herb Lawrence (@Ecnerwal23) June 24, 2023
Eloy with his third hit of the night, followed by some more classic White Sox lack of offense.
Watching the White Sox- like my high school dating life. Getting my hopes up and then nothing.— The K (@Frank_The_K) June 24, 2023
Gregory Santos looks dominant, going 1-2-3, but we are still asking:
Can we please score a run here— WSux Ammar (@LaPantera73) June 24, 2023
Never noticed before, but once you see it, you can’t unsee it.

Also glad he’s not another 24 y/o on the Guardians.
Bello pitched good for the BoSox. Glad he’s out of the game #BOSvsCWS— Harp ⚾️⚪️⚫️ ⬇️ ❤️ (@Harp4803) June 24, 2023
Maybe there was something to that personal catcher thing after all.
Lucas Giolito in 15 starts this season with Seby Zavala catching:— Christopher Kamka (@ckamka) June 24, 2023
2.85 ERA, 88.1 IP, 70 Hits, 29 BB, 96 K
I can confirm, Reynaldo López is indeed pitching for the eighth.
The Halloween music can only mean one thing: Reynaldo Lopez is now pitching.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) June 24, 2023
Still something to catching a game on a warm summer day.
Even if you have to watch White Sox baseball.
Only thing that would make this night better would be a lead pic.twitter.com/KIwjfRuaOQ— JF (@JF_Fey) June 24, 2023
Red Sox with some of their own #WhiteSoxDefense, but potential go-ahead run Gavin Sheets grounds out to end the inning.
Top of the ninth, 3-1 Perinone Hose.

At least it wasn’t just from one guy this time.
We go to the bottom of the ninth, Sox down to their last three outs, needing two runs to tie.

Sox lose the opener to their rosy counterparts, 3-1.
Might have to just try this instead tomorrow.
The trick to the white Sox is to simply stop caring and just drink Hamm’s instead.— Rudy (@CoveysBurner) June 24, 2023
See you next time!
