White Sox vs Cubs 2021

August 27, 2021 | Category: Sports


White Sox destroy Cubs 17-13 and win Crosstown Cup

The White Sox offense came alive in the bottom of the third with back-to-back doubles by Luis Robert and José Abreu, making that José’s second RBI of the game. Moncada drove in another with a bloop to center (he’s good, just stop), halving the deficit. And then, just like that …

It’s a whole new ball game. Two more reached base following an Andrew Vaughn HBP and a Tim Anderson … WALK?! And then the White Sox took the lead following probably the most embarrassing error by a shortstop ever. And Eloy drove in two more, making it 9-6.

ReyLo shut it down again in the top of the fifth, and the Sox poured on four more with Robert, Moncada, and Yaz RBIs putting them WELL into double digits. The inning ended the way many innings seem to end this year, a Leury García ground out with RISP.

In the top of the seventh, Mike Wright gave up a solo HR to Michael Hermosillo. If you don’t know who either of those guys are, that’s fine, it doesn’t matter, because the White Sox were still up by six. By the bottom of the seventh, the White Sox were back to double the Cubs’ total thanks to an Andrew Vaughn RBI. Jake Lamb came in to pinch-hit for Tim Anderson, and he popped out to Andrew Romine, who actually caught the ball this time.

Crochet came in in the top of the eighth, inheriting two base runners from Wright and giving up three runs on Ian Happ and Jason Hayward doubles. Crochet closed out the inning with the Sox still up, 14-10. At this point, many White Sox fans were asking, what is happening?

And then, just like that … it’s a brand new ball game. Well, not really, but if this also sounds familiar it’s because Yasmani Grandal hit ANOTHER three-run homer.

And finally, FINALLY, after over FOUR HOURS, the 2021 Crosstown Cup belongs in the hands of its rightful owners, the Chicago White Sox.

Thank you for attending the Yasmani & ReyLo Show, have a good night.
