Ending on a High Note: The Chicago White Sox win their 72nd game to end their season, 72-89. (@WhiteSox)
Anderson wins the MLB and AL batting titles, and Abreu secures the AL RBI lead
The 2019 Chicago White Sox end their season on a positive note: capturing their 72nd win of the season! For as much as the season aggravated fans, it did bring its sunshine…
The Detroit Tigers took an early 1-0 lead in the first off of a Miguel Cabrera home run. However, in the bottom-half of the inning, José Abreu scored on a throwing error by Detroit’s third baseman, Ronny Rodriguez.
Bottom of the fourth inning, the infamous #SoxMath was played. The 2019 finalists:
South Side Hit Pen’s very own, Joe Resis, will be back at SoxFest defending his 2018 championship title! Congratulations, and good luck, Joe!
Back to the game, the score stayed knotted at one until the Tigers took the lead back in the third off of a bloop, Jordy Mercer RBI-single that scored Victor Reyes.
Once again, have no fear White Sox fans becasue the Good Guys put up a four-spot in the sixth to take the lead back, 5-2.
Yoán Moncada grounded out to tie the game at 2, which scored Danny Mendick — who came in as Tim Anderson’s replacement.
Eloy Jiménez doubled home Ryan Goins, who pinch-ran for Pito.
Welington Castillo finished the inning’s scoring by launching a two-run home run for that 5-2 lead.
One-out in the ninth inning, Rodriguez launched a solo home run to left field to decrease the scoring deficit, 5-3.
Kelvin Herrera was able to close it out, and the White Sox enter the 2019-2020 offseason on a victorious note!
We all know what that means!!!
Keep checking out South Side Hit Pen for many offseason reads! It has been my honor bringing coverage to the South Side Sox and SSHP community beginning in May of this year. I look forward to many more writings in this growing community of passionate White Sox fans! Rest up; there is a lot to do for 2020! I’m predicting many more sunglasses emojis and a playoff appearance!

Progress has been made. Now comes the real question…can the front office keep from screwing up another off season? We’ll see.
Also here’s a stat that I’m always interest in. The Sox trailed in the 7th inning or later and came back to win 10 times this season. The Sox led in the 7th inning or later and lost 10 times this season.
An indication that the bullpen was running out of gas was the fact that three of those blown games came in the last 13 games played.
If you are interested in who was responsible for blowing those games, here is the breakdown (some games had more than one pitcher responsible):
Herrera (2), Marshall (2), Fry (1 1/2), Colome (1 1/2), Bummer (1), Covey (1/2), Nova (1/2), Osich (1/2), Ruiz (1/2)
Great job this year Ashley!!!! Looking forward to your reporting next season & this off season. Sox don’t lose 90 & the future looks bright!!!! Awesome ending to this season.
