White Sox rally with 3 runs in the 8th inning to beat the Rangers 7-6

CHICAGO, IL - JUNE 20: Chicago White Sox shortstop Elvis Andrus (1) scores the winning run in the eighth inning ahead of the tag by Texas Rangers catcher Jonah Heim (28) during an MLB game on June 20, 2023 at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, Illinoi

Zach Remillard singled in Elvis Andrus with the go-ahead run on a play that was overturned by video review, and the Chicago White Sox rallied with three runs in eighth inning to beat the Texas Rangers 7-6 on Tuesday night.

The White Sox overcame five RBIs by Corey Seager, including a two-run double in the top of the eighth that put Texas ahead 6-4.

Andrus tied it with a single off Grant Anderson (1-1) that plated two runs with two outs. Remillard followed with a line drive to left field, and Andrus was initially called out at the plate by umpire D.J. Reyburn on Travis Jankowski’s throw.

Rangers manager Bruce Bochy was ejected after the call was overturned. Bochy was booted for the 80th time in his career.

Andrus had a solo shot and finished with three RBIs. Eloy Jiménez hit a two-run homer for Chicago, which ended Texas’ three-game winning streak and won for just the third time in 10 games.

Seager, who finished with three hits, has 41 RBIs in 31 games since returning from a left hamstring strain.

He greeted Aaron Bummer, Chicago’s third reliever, with his second double of the night. Seager’s shot to the right-center gap plated Jankowski and Leody Taveras to put Texas ahead for the first time.

Bummer (3-1) got the win despite retiring only one batter. Kendall Graveman pitched a scoreless ninth for his seventh save.

Rangers starter Nathan Eovaldi yielded four runs and five hits in six innings, his third straight outing allowing three or more runs

Texas trailed 4-2 entering the seventh, but the first four Rangers hitters reached base against reliever Keynan Middleton and Texas tied it on Seager’s two-run single.

White Sox starter Dylan Cease allowed two runs on five hits in six innings, striking out nine. The 2022 AL Cy Young Award runner-up exited with a two-run lead, but got a fifth straight no-decision.


Before Jiménez’s two-run drive, Chicago’s previous nine homers had been solo shots. The White Sox were 1-4 in that stretch.

"It’s making true to the point that solos don’t beat you," manager Pedro Grifol said.


White Sox CF Luis Robert Jr., who entered third in the AL with 18 homers, was rested but entered as a defensive replacement in the seventh. The speedy outfielder had started 20 straight games.
