Yasmani Grandal has to work in terms of regaining sufficient energy for his catching responsibilities after a knee injury.
His swing seems to be very excellent.
Grandal homered twice in the game and drove in 8 runs upon his return from the list of the injured players on Friday night, leading the Chicago White Sox to a 17-13 victory against the sloppy Chicago Cubs.
Grandal’s eight RBIs tied the club record and set a career-high for the switch-hitter. Additionally, he doubled and singles.
Yasmani Grandal said that by halfway through the game, he was very exhausted from running around, blocking, and moving behind the plate, but that’s part of the job. He added that he thanks God that he is back and has a month of games to build up his stamina and feel good before the playoffs.
The AL Central’s leaders are also relieved Yasmani Grandal is back.
The manager, Tony La Russa, said that evidently, he’s been putting in a lot of effort as shown by his timely swing. He added that he is talking about a massive, massive production; it was really amazing.
José Abreu had three hits and two RBIs, helping the White Sox move to a 43-23 this season at home. Luis Robert contributed three hits and three runs, while Yoán Moncada widened his hitting streak to a total of 13 games.
The White Sox advanced to 4-0 over their crosstown rivals, claiming their first season series victory since 2014.
