Amid Chris Sale drama, White Sox heroics just keep coming

While the Chicago White Sox deal with the fallout of Chris Sale’s throwback shredding on Saturday, things are actually going pretty well on the field.

On Sunday, after announcing Sale’s five-game suspension for insubordination, the White Sox had two walk-off wins over the Detroit Tigers. 

Then on Monday, the team was set to begin a series against the Chicago Cubs, only to find out their crosstown rivals had made a trade for flame-throwing reliever Aroldis Chapman.

Unfazed, the White Sox opened Monday’s game with a gem of a play by Melky Cabrera, going over the wall to rob Kris Bryant in the first inning (watch the video above).

And how did they end it? 

With another walk-off, of course.

For what it’s worth, Chapman is expected to join the Cubs for Tuesday’s game and the White Sox will get Sale back in time to start Thursday’s series finale.
