Recap: White Sox end an eighteen inning scoreless streak with a 3-1 win against the Twins
The Chicago White Sox ended their 18 inning scoreless streak after timely hits by Avisail Garcia and Matt Davidson, won them the game against the Twins
The real hero of this game and with a very hot bad is Avisail Garcia of the White Sox. He sent a ball over the fence to win this game in the tenth inning Sunday. He clobbered the second pitch, a 98-mph fastball, by Ryan Pressly to win the game.
“The first swing, I swung hard,” Garcia said. “I said to myself, ‘Hey, don’t try to do too much. Just put the barrel on the ball, because he throws hard.’ So that’s what I did.”
It was a two-run homer that put the White sox ahead 3-1 at Target Field. That was Avisail Garcia’s fourth hit of the game, which tied his career high. Right now he is leading the AL in batting average (.465) and tied with teammate Matt Davidson for RBIs with ten.
They were waiting to heat up after on Saturday being held to just one hit by Ervin Santana. When Avisail got a hit in the second it ended a seven-inning hitless streak for them. The White Sox got their first run on the board in the bottom of the eighth off a sac fly by Matt Davidson that scored Jose Abreu. Byron Buxton tried to laser him from center field but a nice bounce off the mound ended their 18 inning scoreless streak.
Avisail Garcia has gotten on base all eleven games so far this season and has six multi-hit games.
