Tonight’s game had a very odd start time, which probably doesn’t bode well for the vibes of the game, but I digress. Instead, I provide you with a reminder that Luis Robert Jr. is good at baseball.

A huge Happy 40th Birthday to the world’s greatest sports broadcaster. We are so lucky Jason announces for the South Side.

Chris Getz talked to a group of beat reporters before the game. There were numerous quotes pulled from his chat, but I will let you go find more if you are that curious.
Getz: "I definitely plan on adding people to the front office."— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) September 9, 2023
Now, I guess, we can get to the game. Pedro’s lineup is the same as it has been as of late.
TA leads off the game with a single.
Tim Anderson is now 12-21 (.571) career vs Tarik Skubal, including 7 for 8 (with 4 doubles and a homer) leading off games.— Christopher Kamka (@ckamka) September 9, 2023
It is now José Ureña’s turn to take the mound for the White Sox after being DFA’d by two other organizations this season.
Jose Ureña is going to be the guy no one remembers when trying to do the 2023 White Sox roster sporcle in 10 years.— Mike (@ChiSoxFanMike) September 9, 2023
Korey Lee catches Zach McKinstry trying to steal second in the bottom of the second inning. McKinstry was responsible for an RBI single one at-bat earlier, but one run was all the Tigers would get.
I don't have the numbers in front of me but i'd wager Korey Lee's pop time is much better than Yaz's lol— SoxOptimist (@OptimistSox) September 9, 2023
He stayed in the game, but his swing in the fourth did not look fun.
Moncada really just swang so hard he hurt himself— Al (@baseballgalal) September 9, 2023
White Sox starter Ureña, got out of a jam in the bottom of the fourth to keep the score 1-0.

A single and three walks plates the second run of the night for the Tigers. We all have our feelings about Luis Patiño.

Touki Toussaint and Luis Patiño are basically the same guy. Great stuff but can’t throw a strike if their lives depended on it. If only the pitching coach could help them with this.— Mike (@ChiSoxFanMike) September 9, 2023
I will now be referring to this team as such from now on.
Michael Kopech has entered the game as the seventh-inning reliever.
Kopech's first relief appearance since 2021, when he made four starts among his 44 trips to the mound.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) September 10, 2023
Kopech gives up a home run in his single inning of work. Bright side? His velocity was up.
More like Cookedpech— YoYo's Bizarre Adventure¹⁶ (ᜋᜆᜒᜂ) (@The_Mendozer) September 10, 2023
Hey! The White Sox scored!
A run!— SoxNerd (@SoxNerd) September 10, 2023
That would be all they would get. Chicago loses, 3-1.
Tigers win, 3-1. White Sox elimination number is at 1— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) September 10, 2023
See you for the rubber match tomorrow.
