White Sox win series finale vs Orioles despite a bad seriesVincent Pariseon June 27, 2022 at 12:00 pm

The Chicago White Sox won what was a must-win game for them on Sunday. Where they already are in the standings, they could not afford to be swept by the Baltimore Orioles at home. Dylan Cease was on the mound for the White Sox in this one and he was brilliant.

Brilliant might actually be an understatement. It was probably the best performance of his career which is saying something because he has been great lately. In this win, he went 7.0 innings pitched with four hits, one earned run against, one walk, and 13 strikeouts (a career-high).

The White Sox provided four runs of offense. Everyone did a little something but Gavin Sheets’ home run was the big one that put them ahead for good. This is big because it ended what was a long home run drought for the White Sox as a team.

Lenyn Sosa also had his first career Major League hit in this one which was awesome to see as he earned a double on a ball into right field. He came all the way around to score because of two straight sacrifice flies. He has had a really nice start to his career.

The White Sox led this game 4-1 for most of it. Things got a little fishy, however, in the 9th inning because things can never just be easy for this team. 2022’s bad vibes were in full force during this inning as the Orioles made it close.

Kendall Graveman came in to pitch in this inning. Jose Abreu made two errors at first base which allowed them to have runners on first and second before Graveman walked the bases loaded.

A Baltimore hit with the bases loaded scored two to make it 4-3 and had the White Sox on their heels. Luckily, Graveman was able to get it done and the White Sox ended the losing streak. Again, it wasn’t easy but a win is a win.

The Chicago White Sox won a must-win game on Sunday against Baltimore.

The White Sox lost all of the good feelings that they had after the series win over the Toronto Blue Jays. However, they can get them back with the Los Angeles Angels on deck. The White Sox now have a full week in California.

Los Angeles is not firing on all cylinders like they were the last time the White Sox faced them. This is a chance for them to get there and take advantage of a fragile Angels team that is now 35-40. Lucas Giolito will be on the mound looking to right his own ship as an individual. It should be a great series loaded with star power.
