The Chicago White Sox are in big trouble after SaturdayVincent Pariseon June 26, 2022 at 12:43 am

The Chicago White Sox are in big trouble. After dropping the first two of the series against the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday and Friday, they needed to win on Saturday. They didn’t for a variety of reasons and now their backs are really against the wall.

Lance Lynn was on the mound for the White Sox in this game. He pitched well for the first six innings as he had only allowed two runs. He gave the White Sox a chance to win but Tony La Russa left him in way too long.

Once he reached the 100 pitch mark, it was clear that he was done. He made it through two outs in the seventh but couldn’t get the third out and it was obvious he was done. Tony La Russa let him bean in Baltimore’s third run before he came and got him.

Instead of using a high leverage reliever in this inning, La Russa brought in Jose Ruiz who gave up a bases-clearing double. It was just a very bad scene for the White Sox and Lance Lynn deserved none of it.

The Chicago White Sox lost a game that felt like a must-win for them.

Not only did Tony La Russa make this mistake, but he also loves Leury Garcia way too much. He does absolutely nothing for the White Sox on a nightly basis.

Luckily, he was there to make an error that allowed the go-ahead run to score from second along with jumping in front of Lenyn Sosa to make another error. He should not be on the roster but Tony La Russa finds a way to use him almost every day.

The offense deserves so much blame for this as well. Baltimore’s pitching is statistically terrible and the White Sox just have’t been able to hit anyone. It is honestly pathetic to see them be this bad at the plate with so much at stake.

Now, at 33-37, they must win this final game of the series on Sunday. Dylan Cease will be on the mound for the White Sox as they try to salvage a single game. If they don’t win and are swept at home by the Orioles, people must be fired. If they want to make it back to the playoffs this year, things need to start changing and fast.
