Moncada Mondays – 1/15/18

The seventh edition of Moncada Mondays


In the dead of winter, baseball fans long for warm summer days at the ballpark. This week’s edition of Moncada Mondays takes you back to a mid-September day in Detroit. The White Sox opened up a four-game series against the Tigers on a Thursday afternoon. Yoan Moncada was slotted second in the order, and he was ready to go right out of the gate. Down 1-2 in the count, he made Chad Bell pay for leaving a fastball up in the zone.

Moncada set the tone for the game with this home run as the Sox would mash 25 hits on their way to a 17-7 victory. Yoan continued to rake, going 4-5 with two walks and five runs scored on the afternoon. Only 73 days until Moncada and the South Siders face the Royals on Opening Day!
