The White Sox suffer another wild finish against the Royals, this time losing on a walk-off bunt.

The Chicago White Sox have experienced a second unusual defeat, this time against the Kansas City Royals. However, this loss was a bit more legitimate than the previous one. During the game, which was tied 3-3 in the bottom of the ninth, Freddie Farmin successfully hit a perfect safety squeeze bunt to bring Nick Pratt home, and there was no play for the White Sox. The game ended as it was, with no further action. Royals manager Matt Quatraro praised Farmin’s impressive bunting skills, stating that the play is usually very difficult.

This was the second loss of its kind in Major League Baseball this season, with the first also involving the White Sox. In a game against the Minnesota Twins last month, Michael Taylor hit a sacrifice bunt at Target Field, causing a throwing error that led to a 4-3 win for the Royals. This was again an unusual way to win, but the outcome remained the same.

The White Sox’s defeat on Thursday was the team’s third in a losing streak of four games. Despite being disappointed in the lack of urgency shown by the team, White Sox manager Pedro Grifol acknowledged that there is still a lot of baseball left to play. However, he also highlighted the need for improvement, from himself and his staff to the entire ball club.
