White Sox Minor Keys: June 8, 2022

The Charlotte Knights played the game of the season for the entire White Sox organization at any level, and it’s hard to imagine what could possibly top it.

The way the game unfolded originally broke the MiLB.com scoreboard, because the truth didn’t even look right. The Knights:

  • Led 1-0 after two
  • Trailed 10-1 after four
  • Entered the ninth down 10-4
  • Won 15-14 in 10 innings.

The only bad news is that it occurred on what’s supposed to be Lance Lynn’s final rehab start. He survived a pair of action-packed first innings before a 1-2-3 third gave him a shot at going the originally planned five innings on 75-80 pitches.

And while Lynn ended up with 77 pitches, he did so without recording a single out in the fourth. Instead, the inning started with a double, walk, single, single and single over the course of 18 pitches. He left the bases loaded for Lincoln Henzman, and Henzman couldn’t strand any of them.

Fortunately, the Knights had their own magical sequence in the ninth inning, culminating with some game-tying #WILDPITCH OFFENSE.

In happier pitching news, Norge Vera is expected to start for Kannapolis tonight. So that’s what Friday’s Minor Keys will be about.

I assume they are hoping to not have to burn Sheets’ option but it is becoming more and more intriguing to call Haseley back up


I still think that its because of Eloy’s needed roster spot.

The team is gonna have to juggle the nearing returns of Eloy, TA, Kelly, and Lynn.

DFA Harrison, Sheets down…. crick down… martin down….

I dont see how Haseley would fit.


Excellent lines from Thompson and Mena.
