Chicago White Sox might have saved their season with Sunday’s winVincent Pariseon May 30, 2022 at 12:00 pm

The Chicago White Sox came out on top of Sunday’s series finale against the Chicago Cubs. They will finish the year 3-1 against the Cubs and are now 8-2 in their last ten against them. The all-time series was very even based on record just a couple of years ago but the White Sox are pulling away.

In order to win this Sunday game, they needed everyone to chip in some way somehow in extra innings. They used a lot of their best bullpen arms and used their entire bench of position players for various reasons.

Dylan Cease started this game for the White Sox and he was brilliant. He seems to enjoy pitching against the team that traded him as he completely dominates them every time now. In this one, he went 7.0 while giving up one run on two hits.

He did hand out four walks which is something to work on but he did have five strikeouts. There is no doubt that there is stuff for him to work on but this was an excellent performance for him. If the White Sox can keep getting starts like this out of him, their rotation will be elite.

The Chicago White Sox really needed to take this game against the Chicago Cubs.

For an extra-innings game like that, the White Sox used Kendall Graveman, Liam Hendriks, Reynaldo Lopez, Aaron Bummer, and Matt Foster to get the job done. Lopez and Bummer each gave up some runners in extra innings but the White Sox always managed to tie it.

Although the White Sox did give up four runs, not a single one was charged as an earned run. However, the White Sox managed to earn some runs and they won as a result. Jake Burger was the hero as he had the walk-off single in the bottom of the 12th inning to preserve the win.

It is a good thing that the White Sox were off on Friday and they are off on Monday. After taxing their bullpen like that, it will be nice for them to get rest. That isn’t even close to the case for the Cubs as they have a doubleheader on Monday against the Milwaukee Brewers.

This was a very resilient win for the White Sox and it came against their crosstown rival. We have seen the winner of this series go on streaks following it so the White Sox need to hope that trend continues. It was a very entertaining game that the White Sox came out on top of.
