Although inclement weather broke just in time for first pitch, a perfect storm remained in the air for the White Sox on Wednesday afternoon.
After all, the South Siders’ matchup against the San Francisco Giants turned out to be one scattered with milestones. In the bottom of the first inning, White Sox infielder Andrew Benintendi singled to center field. Thanks to an additional single by Gavin Sheets, Benintendi would make it home, scoring the 400th run of his career.
Then, only a few innings later in the bottom of the fifth, White Sox infielder Elvis Andrus became just the 293rd player in MLB history to record 2,000 career hits, following his single to right field. Timely hitting and ample run support supplied the bullpen with a solid cushion, as the team secured their first home victory of the 2023 season with a 7-3 final. It was great to hear “Sweet Home Chicago” ringing throughout Guaranteed Rate Field once again.
