The White Sox look to bounce back after an embarrassing start to the series against the Twins.
Speaking of, let’s check in on what other broadcasts are saying. Oh.
Michael Kopech escapes a bases-loaded jam in his usual first-inning meltdown. But the real news here?
Then he tried to steal and was unsuccessful.
That’s the second inning in as many days that we’ve run ourselves out on. Cmon.

The game has been less than exciting through three innings. Max Kepler crushes a high fastball to make it 1-0, Twins. Meanwhile, the White Sox had two on with one out, but Tim Anderson ended the third as he hit into a double play.
It’s a nobody RHP so you know the White Sox aren’t doing anything on offense till like the 5th if they do at all

Member when the White Sox were a fun baseball team to watch?
— Sergio Santos fan club (@santossergio46) July 6, 2022
Honestly, this team is getting embarrassing.
Oh, and it’s 3-0 Twins now.
Home run by José Miranda, who is Lin-Manuel’s cousin.

Sox don’t score with RISP and the opposing team does, right away. It’s like clockwork.

There is a lot of chatter about blowing it all up, but do we really trust Rick Hahn?
The shutout has ended, as Yoán Moncada brings in a run on a two-out double.
We scored 1 run off *checks notes* Josh Winder.
Start running the Playoff advertisements.

With the fourth home run, the White Sox trail 6-1. We’re not having fun.
Kopech does uh, not have it tonight.
— janice (@scuriiosa) July 6, 2022
Sometimes, the truth really hurts.
The Twins have 4 home runs tonight
The White Sox have 4 home runs since June 21st

Will this recap turn into a Rick Hahn diss piece?
“Talk to me after the parade*”
*Two (2) playoff game wins in two (2) years followed by a curb stomping at the hands of a team with a JV rotation. Take a bow rick

Anderson drives in Josh Harrison on a fielder’s choice RBI to make it 6-2. Then, nothing else happened with the other players on base.
Sox are a literal ground ball factory whenever someone gets on base

I’ve really reached a new level of doom-scrolling during these games.
You absolutely know there will be no accountability and in the press conference tonight they’ll push the “Eloy is almost back” narrative harder than a woman pushing out a baby

And just like that, it’s an 8-2 ball game in the top of the seventh.
Bringing in Vince Velasquez in any game for the #WhiteSoxmeans the white flag has been waved.
Speaking of waived, Vince Velasquez should no longer be on this team after today.

Perhaps it’s 140.
i heard in April and May that the #whiteSox would start hitting better when it warms up. How Warm? 110? 130?
— Chi-Guy Eric (@ChiTownEnuff) July 6, 2022
Josh Harrison did get a hit. It happened to be a special one.
Josh Harrison has a couple hits tonight, the second of which is the 1,000th of his major league career. A nice ovation from the crowd as the milestone is put on the jumbotron.

The rain is coming down and fans begin to head to the concourse, or maybe home. But the White Sox are heating up? Two on, no outs, TA at-bat.
McGuire and Zavala heard Grandal was coming back soon, and are hitting for their lives.
— The Last AirBENder (@BenChiTownKid98) July 6, 2022
TA strikes out, and Andrew Vaughn hits into a double play.
Fitting end to that inning
— Herb Lawrence (@Ecnerwal23) July 6, 2022
Even the scoreboard is miserable.
It can rain anytime now. End my misery. Lightning strike my pinwheels. I’m ready to go home.
— White Sox Exploding Scoreboard (@SoxScoreboard) July 6, 2022
And now we’ve got a rain delay with one out in the bottom of the eighth.
…just end the game, guys.
— Joe W. Sox (@dailycupofjoe14) July 6, 2022
After 35 minutes, we have baseball, I guess.
There will be more baseball here tonight, or so it appears.
— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) July 6, 2022
As we enter the ninth, a few players have uh, moved. Josh Harrison is now pitching, and Jake Burger is playing second base now.
Josh Harrison’s pitching and he just gave up a hit, all that’s missing now is the circus music. #WhiteSox
— LaKeena McGee (@KeenaMcGee) July 6, 2022
But hey, he escaped a jam with a 5-4-3 double play.
Josh Harrison for closer imo
— Liddle Tina (@liddle_ktina) July 6, 2022
Things got a little interesting, as mild-mannered AJ Pollock got ejected.
AJ Pollock getting thrown out of the 9th inning of an 8-2 game is the biggest highlight halfway through his first season with the White Sox
— Bennett Karoll (@TheBennettK) July 6, 2022
The White Sox are irate at strike calls, but they wouldn’t have to be if they just got some runs. That’s the game!
