White Sox Offense Sputters in Loss to Mets

The White Sox scored a total of four runs in a series sweep at the hands of the Mets

The Chicago White Sox offense was once again a no-show against the New York Mets on Thursday, as they were swept at Guaranteed Rate Field. 

The White Sox managed to score just four runs total in the three-game series, and were held off the scoreboard completely on Thursday as they managed just four hits against the visitors. 

Dylan Cease gave up three earned runs in seven innings of work, but was tagged with the loss as his record dropped to 1-4 on the season. He did strike out six batters and scattered seven hits in his outing. 

For the Mets, Zach Wheeler had a strong day on the mound, holding the Sox scoreless through seven innings and giving up just four hits while striking out seven batters. 

Robinson Canó hit his 10th home run of the season off of Cease, and Wilson Ramos drove in a run for the Mets as they completed their series sweep. 

The Mets got on the board in the second inning thanks to the veteran infielder, as Canó ripped a home run to left field and put the Mets ahead 1-0. He struck again in the sixth, doubling to deep right field and scoring Jeff McNeil to secure a 2-0 lead for the Visitors. 

The Mets added two more runs in that frame, with Pete Alonso scoring on an RBI single by Ramos, and Canó also scored on an error by White Sox catcher Welington Castillio to make it a 4-0 game. 

That was all the run support the Mets' pitching staff needed, as Luis Avilan and Jeurys Familia threw two innings of shutout ball to finish off the victory. 

The White Sox will now head to Philadelphia for another interleague series, as they open up a three-game set against the Phillies on Friday evening.
