Despite Fedde’s stellar start, the White Sox suffered a heartbreaking defeat

The White Sox lost to the Mariners 8-4 after Erick Fedde’s strong performance was marred by bullpen struggles that culminated with a grand slam off Cal Raleigh’s win.

By the numbers

  • Fedde threw 7 innings, allowing 5 hits and lowering his ERA for the season to 3.10.
  • Over his last 11 starts, Fedde is 4-1 with an ERA of 2.84.

Yes but

The bullpen performance thwarted Fedde’s efforts, and Michael Kopech struggled in the eighth inning, ultimately leading to the loss.

Game status

  • The White Sox record dropped to 17-50, the worst in the major leagues.
  • The team faces a difficult journey: three more games in Seattle and three in Arizona.

What’s next

The White Sox need to solve their problems to capitalize on their early hitting and turn close games into victories.

Bottom line

Fedde’s strong starting pitching highlights the potential of the White Sox, but their bullpen struggles continue to cost them key games, highlighting the need for consistency and reliability in relief pitching.
