Six Pack of Stats: Kansas City 6, White Sox 3

The good, the bad, and the ugly: A new Sox record, a Giolito-start loss, and losing the season series to KC.

Lucas Giolito sets a new White Sox record, but the South Siders drop the season series, 10-9

A Lucas Giolito start that isn’t a winner is usually always disappointing. However, you can’t win them all, but you can certainly try to accomplish that feat. It’s time to go through the numbers of the game to determine what went right and wrong.

Luc-ace G-elite-o had a very uncharacterisitc, but unusual start during this matinee matchup. He allowed five runs to score, but he established a new Chicago White Sox record: creating an unordinary -.361 WPA Keep reading to find out what our ace of the staff accomplished!

Alex Colomé entered the game in the ninth for a well-needed inning to pitch off some dust. However, Alex commited an E-1 by throwing the baseball to center field instead of second base for the forceout. That run came around to score for Kansas City’s sixth run of the game.

For some good news, Daniel Palka recorded his second hit of the 2019 season: an infield single in the sixth! Hopefully, that 90-feet sprint to first ignited a spark for the rest of the season.

Lucas Giolito recorded three strikeouts in the third inning, three strikeouts in the fourth, and two straight punchouts in the fifth. Luc-ace G-elite-o owns a new White Sox record with eight straight strikeouts!

The offense surely tried to string hits together in order to produce runs. With eleven throughout the game, one would think that more than three runs would have crossed the plate for the Good Guys. Unfortunately, during the biggest rally of the third inning, José Abreu ran passed Nick Capra’a stop sign which resulted in the final out of what should have been at least a two- or three-run inning.

However, on the bright side, José Abreu took a fly ball to the center-field warning track in the fifth inning. It went as a sac fly to score Adam Engel. Engel’s run counted as Abreu’s 115 RBI of the season!
