Cubs and White Sox 4-4 tie for the Cubs second in a row
The cubs hit a pair of home runs to get this tie with the White Sox ending in 4-4. Nice shots from Addison Russell and Willson Contreras. Have to love how these guys are starting out so far with fun defensive plays and already getting some deep balls.
Here is the HR by Russell:
Here is the Dinger by Willson
Tim Anderson a top Sox prospect is making a little big of noise in the 5th with hitting a RBI double to center.
Tim played College Ball at East Central Community College and was picked by the Sox in the 2013 draft. He actually made his MLB debut with the Sox last season. The short stop last year at Charlotte batted .304 with 4 HR 20 RBI’s and 11 stolen bases. He got brought up when Jimmy Rollins was designated for assignment.
Jose Abreu got his first one in the to of the 5th off Brad Markey to put the Sox up 3-2. In just one inning of work Markey didn’t do so hot letting up 3 ER on 3 hits in his debut.
White Sox Lucas Giolito one of the top pitching prospects there are in baseball made his debut.
He was actually selected by Washington in 2012 and got his MLB debut in 2016. He throws real f%*#ing fast. Fastball is clocked at about 100. The White Sox got him in the greatest trade I’ve ever seen for one side in the Adam Eaton trade. Giolito was the 3rd ranked prospect in the minors at the time.
Giolito put in some good work in the two innings that he threw. Lucas let up 3 hits and struck out 2.
In the seventh the Cubs got two runs they caught back up and took the lead from the Sox on a Chesny Young RBI single. Willy Garcia tied it back up with an RBI ground out in the next bottom inning to tie it back up 4-4.
Even though the Cubs made it interesting in the bottom of the 9th but with back to back strikeouts by John Andreoli it was over with a tie.
The Cubs play again today at 1p.m. against the Angles.
