Failing to score five runs in five straight games White socks The offense erupted with an 11-4 victory over the Angels on Tuesday night. They did it with a combination of long homers, devastating doubles, well-timed hits and a nice little ball. They did it up and down the lineup, with seven hitters scoring two or more hits. Defensively, Johnny Cueto continued his strong season and earned another quality start.


Once again, the White Sox offense was sleepwalking due to an underwhelming performance. In four innings, the team had two hits and five strikeouts. Everything looked gloomy. Then the sun went down, and the shadows on the field fell asleep. Obviously, this helped the Sox see the ball better because they started on the first hit and ended up earning five points in the fifth inning. The frame’s big hits were two home runs off Josh Harrison and Luis Robert, but Leuri Garcia and Sebi Zavala hit it off with a single and a double to start the White Sox tally. From there, the floodgates were opened to attack.

After missing all of April and the first week of May, Yoan Moncada got off to a poor start when he finally made his debut this season. His batting average fell below .200 on May 18, and he has yet to rise above that threshold. But after a three-game set against the Tigers from June 13 to 15, Moncada finally seemed to be starting to come around. In the last game of the series, Moncada ended the game with a five-hit, five-RBI game. But then everything went wrong again. The very next day, Moncada injured his hamstring and needed to return for 10-Day IL. Moncada insisted that he could keep working on his swing to make sure he kept up with the times while he was on the sidelines, and as long as it seemed that was true. Moncada picked up where he left off earlier this month with two hits and two RBIs on Tuesday, including a brace he smashed against a wall in right field.


Name a duo more iconic than Johnny Cueto with six deep. I’ll be waiting. Cueto was a revelation for the White Sox as their fifth starter as the team struggled with numerous bullpen injuries and shaky starts from Dallas Keuchel. Now he’s pitched at least six innings in seven of eight starts for the Sox. He also gave up three or fewer earned runs in seven of eight starts. Cueto’s line could have been better on Tuesday if not for a hiccup in the third inning when he hit three solo throws. Beyond that one half, Cueto only turned down two hits and kept the team in the game long enough for the offense to explode. Another high-quality start from a man who has been doing this for 15 years.
