White Sox 7, Red Sox 2: And the losing streak is OVAH!

by Jordan Lazowski

Finally, at long last, a victory.

The White Sox ended a historic 14-game losing streak this evening with a 7-2 victory, thanks to some strong pitching and plenty of timely hitting. Garrett Crochet got the start for the evening and continued his All-Star campaign, working around some trouble in the third to complete six strong innings. Jonathan Cannon would follow him to save a pretty depleted bullpen, going three strong innings while striking out four to earn himself a rare three-inning save.

On offense, the White Sox used home runs from Andrew Vaughn, Gavin Sheets, and Luis Robert Jr. to pace the offense. Paul DeJong drove in runs with a base hit to left in the fourth and a double to left in the eighth, while Oscar Colas continued his recent strong stretch with a two-RBI single in the fourth.

Overall, it was a pretty standard baseball game. The weird third inning included a steal of home on a pickoff play, but other than that, it was the kind of simple, straightforward baseball game that the White Sox needed for once. They can now head into the weekend without the weight of a franchise-record losing streak hanging over their heads.

With the win, the White Sox improved their record to… oh, who cares. Just enjoy the win.

W: Garrett Crochet (6-5) | L: Cooper Criswell (3-3) | S: Jonathan Cannon (1)

Notable Performances

Garrett Crochet: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 10 K

Crochet is likely well on his way towards earning his first career All-Star appearance this season. The left-hander was fastball/cutter heavy this evening – but he was able to pretty easily navigate through the Red Sox’s lineup outside of a weird third inning.

Crochet has now been on the mound for the last three White Sox victories.

Gavin Sheets: 1-for-2, HR, RBI, 3 R, 2 BB

Gavin Sheets was on the basepaths all night, walking and scoring twice and also putting a ball over the fence as the first of back-to-back homers between him and Andrew Vaughn. Sheets launched his sixth homer of the season with his liner to right.

Andrew Vaughn: 2-for-4, HR, RBI, 2 R

Andrew Vaughn, interestingly enough, has been better since injuring his finger. He posted three more hard-hit baseballs tonight, including one he put over the fence.
