Latest update about this Chicago White Sox players: The Chicago White Sox…………….

Lenyn Sosa launched a three-run home ball, Chicago scored their first run on a planned balk, and the White Sox defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-2 on Saturday night to record a rare away victory.

In the second inning, Thyago Vieira’s pitches from second base to Andrew Vaughn were relayed by Chicago’s Martín Maldonado, which led to the balk.

Torey Lovullo, manager of the Diamondbacks, observed, “It was a calculated balk.” Maldonado is quite astute and was gesturing. He went nine for nine without missing. His habit of signaling the batter caught our attention, and it looked excessively dangerous.

Erick Fedde (5-1) delivered a strong performance, allowing two runs on eight hits across six innings with six strikeouts.

Chicago exhibited considerable power, bouncing back from a one-run effort in the series opener with four homers and 12 hits.

Andrew Vaughn launched a home run and drove in three RBIs, Korey Lee added a two-run shot, and Paul DeJong contributed a solo homer, contributing to the White Sox’s seventh road victory in 31 games.

“We’re in a good offensive flow right now,” said Sosa through an interpreter. “Like everything, it’s contagious, and I think that’s what’s happening currently.”

The Diamondbacks inadvertently aided Chicago in the third inning with Vieira’s intentional balk (0-1).

With Maldonado on second, the Arizona pitcher threw multiple pitches into the dirt, prompting a mound visit from Lovullo. Lovullo instructed Vieira to drop the ball, which he did before the next pitch, advancing the slower Maldonado to third on the balk. Vaughn then singled, easily bringing Maldonado home.

DeJong extended the lead for the White Sox with a homer to the pool deck in right-center in the following inning, and Vaughn furthered it to 4-1 with a two-run homer in the fifth. Sosa contributed his second homer of the season in the seventh inning, and Lee capped it off with his sixth in the ninth.
