Six Pack of Stats: Royals 3, White Sox 2
The Chicago White Sox faced the Kansas City Royals in a rubber match,  ahead of their weekend road trip across town to the newly opened Spirit Halloween. Last night was not great,  and tonight was somehow even more heartbreaking. The StartersDallas Keuchel was his normal self. Not great,  but also not awful. Keuchel only allowed two runs on three hits,  survived the dreaded third time through the batting order,  and lasted six innings. Ie watched  some not-so-great Keuchel starts,  so this outing was a pleasant surprise. If only the offense could have provided him with any run support.Keuchel 95-pitch outing looked like this: Baseball SavantThe last time left-handed pitcher Daniel Lynch faced the White Sox was May 8,  when he gave up eight runs in the first inning. Unfortunately,  Lynch was pretty good tonight,  especially when he threw sliders. Lynch 95-pitch outing looked like this:Baseball SavantPressure Play Adam Engel had the chance to be the hero Dallas Keuchel needed,  but struck out swinging with the bases loaded and two outs in the fourth inning. Engel had a bad night,  including that K,  coming under very heavy,  3.86 LI pressure.Pressure CookerReplacing a frazzled Daniel Lynch,  Josh Staumont faced the most pressure all game,  as he worked to keep the White Sox at only one run. Staumont worked his way out of the inherited mess and tipped the pLI scales at 2.80.Top PlayEmmanuel Rivera solidified this Royals win before the White Sox could even reach the bottom of the first inning. Rivera double to center allowed Salvador Perez and Hunter Dozier to score. Rivera WPA was.181 with the double. Top PerformerAs mentioned above,  Josh Staumont kept the Royals out of the jam Daniel Lynch started,  keeping the White Sox from scoring. Staumont WPA for his sixth inning heroics was.245. SmackdownHardest hit: Aside from carrying the team on his back for the second night in a row,  Jos Abreu also had the hardest hit. Abreu sixth inning single was smashed at 111.1 mph. Weakest contact: An unusually cold Tim Anderson had the weakest contact,  in the fifth inning,  when his ground out left the bat at 57.9 mph.Luckiest hit: There weren any ucky hits tonight,  in a rare case. Csar Hernndez single in the fourth inning had the lowest xBA of any safety,  at.350. Toughest out: Tonight was a bad night to be Adam Engel. He went 0-for-4 and couldn make the catches that woulde prevented all three runs. He also had the toughest out of the evening,  with a seventh inning line out that had an xBA of.600. Longest hit: Jos Abreu not only smashed the ball when he could,  but his first inning home run also went the distance 427 feet,  to be exact. Magic Number: 3Because I rather end on a happy note,  Luis Robert hit a three-run home team for Charlotte this evening. Wel likely see him make his triumphant return to the White Sox after Sunday game,  as he will miss the weekend series against the other Chicago baseball team. Perhaps hel surprise fans next week by pushing through the cornstalks that lead to center field.
