How did this SS look? Weird that he leads off, but he coaxed a couple of walks despite not hitting much in the majors.
He created that second White Sox run all by himself. He worked a leadoff walk, stole second and went to third on the throwing error. And I don't know if there's another guy on this club who would have scored on that shallow fly to center off the bat of Keppinger.

From what I've seen of him so far, he has great wheels and he's smooth in the field. But the bat obviously needs some work. The swing is a little too long, and he was late on the fastball more than once tonight. He did work some counts, drew a couple walks and got a man in from third base with less than two outs when the opportunity presented itself.
