Game Summary

Erick Fedde delivered a stellar performance, pitching six scoreless innings, while Tommy Pham contributed with two hits and an RBI as the Chicago White Sox secured a 3-2 victory over the Cleveland Guardians on Thursday night.

With this win, Chicago clinched its second consecutive victory and its fourth win in the last six games, improving its record to 10-28. Notably, the White Sox no longer hold the worst record in the majors, overtaking the Colorado Rockies, who stand at 9-28.

José Ramírez and Josh Naylor blasted back-to-back solo home runs off Chicago reliever John Brebbia in the eighth inning, narrowing the White Sox’s lead to 3-2. However, Chicago’s bullpen held firm, with Michael Kopech entering the game to secure the final four outs and claim his fourth save.

Pham, at 36 years old, showcased his prowess by doubling and maintaining a batting average of .313 in the 12 games since joining the White Sox. Andrew Vaughn and Paul DeJong also contributed RBIs for Chicago.

Chicago rookie Bryan Ramos, playing in just his sixth major league game since his call-up from Double-A Birmingham, continued to impress with a single and a double, boasting a .389 batting average in his debut season. Additionally, Eloy Jiménez added two hits, including a double.

Fedde, pitching for Chicago, was outstanding, allowing only three singles, issuing no walks, and striking out three batters through six innings. Despite facing pressure in the seventh inning, Jordan Leasure came in as relief, striking out two batters and inducing a groundout to escape the threat.

The White Sox capitalized on Cleveland starter Ben Lively, scoring early with doubles by Pham and Vaughn in the first inning to take a 1-0 lead. DeJong and Pham continued the offensive onslaught with singles in the second inning, extending Chicago’s lead to 3-0.

In other news, the Guardians acquired right-handed pitcher Darren McCaughin from Miami in exchange for cash considerations on Thursday, subsequently optioning him to Triple-A Columbus. McCaughin had previously appeared in one game this season for the Marlins, allowing eight runs in 4 2/3 innings.
