Recap: White Sox find their bats really putting it on the Indians winning 10-4
The first home run in the game came on the first pitch that Tim Anderson saw during his at bat. This was his second leadoff homer of his career and set the tone for the game. The game was blown open very early in the first inning for the Chicago White Sox. Matt Davidson, the White Sox third baseman, jacked a three-run that brought the game to 4-0 coming out of the first half inning. Not being done just yet they also Omar Navaez also slapped a single making the opening to this game 5-0 even before the Indians came up to bat.
“That was nice to see Timmy start off,” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. “Got a good pitch, first pitch of the game, hit it out. They kept the line moving for nine hitters so it’s a good first inning, a great first inning.”

The big notch for this young season so far is just how good Avisail Garcia has been. He is starting out like hot fire batting .452 with a HR and 8 RBI’s. Davidson himself is batting .333 with two homers and eight RBI’s. This is a great start for both these guys and this weird rebuild is going very good so far. This might but fans in a weird position but I don’t really think they need to tank. The better these players produce on the field is going to help them get better prospects in the future.
Josh Tomlin just had himself one of those days sometimes you have as a pitcher. He only lasted 1 2/3 letting up eight hits and seven runs all earned. Tomlin only managed to get five outs in his start.
The starter for the White Sox, Miguel Gonzalez fared much better going 4 2/3 innings. Gonzalez allowed three runs off eight hits, striking out five with four walks. Not too bad an outing considering the ball was jumping off the bat yesterday. It’s always a good sign to get work in when your pitching and your team is scoring a bunch of runs.
