The team might suck, but Liam Hendriks remains the brightest spot.

Jack makes it out to Kansas City as the last known White Sox fan.

Yoán Moncada commands an early lead, making it 2-0 in the second.
Alas, the spotlight is fickle and Korey Lee one-ups Yoyo with his first career home run.
Korey Lee snaps an 0-23 with a 3-run HR, the 1st of his career. #WhiteSox— Ryan McGuffey (@RyanMcGuffey) September 5, 2023
And it was a good one!

But at least we’re having fun!
I am watching the White Sox game and I like what I see.— Laura (@EllaJay912) September 5, 2023
*reminds self it’s only the 2nd inning*
White Sox players having fun and smiling in the dugout? Do I need to get my eyes checked again?— Liddle Tina (@liddle_ktina) September 5, 2023
Dylan Cease loads the bases in the second, starting with a leadoff walk. Thankfully, the Royals leave them loaded.
Dylan Cease is so frustrating to watch sometimes— K.N.D❤️ (@WhiteAFOnes) September 6, 2023
Andrew Vaughn opens the third with a solo home run, No. 18 of the season, a career high.
The Royals manage to get a single run in during the third, but there is no tweet to prove it because no one cares.
Ugh. Cease gives up another run.
Dylan Cease’s 50th pitch of the night, his first of the fourth inning, is hit for a home run to shave the Sox’ lead to 6-2.— Vinnie Duber (@VinnieDuber) September 6, 2023
OPE! There is another run in the fourth.
Michael Massey homers.— LaMond Pope (@lamondpope) September 6, 2023
White Sox 6, Royals 3. https://t.co/NyMQcnjkf6
Now 6-4 after another solo home run.
2022 Dylan Cease was fugazi— BZ (@SoxInsane) September 6, 2023
Cease finally leaves the game.
And in comes the only relief pitcher the White Sox have.
While it’s on Cease’s tab, another run came in for the Royals.
Not trying be like this, but it just feels like a blown lead is coming— (@StonecoldSxnick) September 6, 2023
Ohh and Bryan Shaw coming in with his 12,000th appearance with the Sox this season #WhiteSox
Aaron Bummer steps in during the seventh and the Sox only have a one-run lead.
Will the White Sox ever score again?
Oscar Colás does not have good baseball instincts.— Asinwreck (@asinwreck) September 6, 2023
Or get the last three outs?
God bless Tim Anderson and his awful fielding for trying to blow this save in honor of #Tankathon2024— Matt Crawford (@Mattheius2783) September 6, 2023
Two on. No outs.
I smell a Witt walkoff.— John Carney (@JohnCarney3) September 6, 2023
The error from earlier becomes even bigger, as the Royals tie it up with two runners on and just one out.
BALK OFF— BK (@TheBennettK) September 6, 2023
Gregory Santos really just balked with the bases loaded to force home the winning run.

I'm not watching the game, but I've never laughed so hard in my life after getting a game update on my phone and seeing how it was lost.— silent j (@zombie_jacki) September 6, 2023
Do you ever have any sense of shame, AtWhiteSox? pic.twitter.com/FIVvpTuWq1— Michael Whitlow (@couldbelikemike) September 6, 2023
