The first ever ‘Field of Dreams’ baseball game was held Thursday night in the cornfields of Iowa. The Chicago White Sox hosted the New York Yankees in what ended up being one of the most exciting regular season games of the MLB season. Just take a look at how the players came out of the cornfields and entered the stadium…CHILLS
The game didn’t disappoint either…the White Sox took an early lead off of Jose Abreu’s 22nd HR of the season, which was quickly taken away when Aaron Judge hit a 3-run HR in the 3rd inning to give the Yankees a 3-1 lead. The White Sox responded in the bottom of the 3rd by scoring 4 runs, 3 of which were off of Eloy Jimenez’s 3- run bomb. Chicago added to their lead by making it 7-3 in the 4th inning and it was looking like it may be a blowout when it was all said and done. Not so fast, the Yankees kept battling and entered the top of the 9th down 4-7. All with 2 outs, the Yankees amazingly, hit 2 HR from Judge and Stanton to give themselves a 8-7 lead over Chicago and needing 3 outs to complete the epic comeback.
The White Sox had an answer of their own in the bottom of the ninth. P Zach Britton of the Yankees was able to record the first out in the bottom half of the 9th, but walked catcher Sevy Zavala and gave up a 2-run walkoff homer to Tim Anderson. What a crazy finish it ended up being! It’s only right that the ‘Field of Dreams’ venue brought out the best in both teams. The Yankees currently sit at 63-52 which is 4th in the AL East and 2 games back of a wild card spot. The White Sox are cruising right now at 68-48 and lead the AL Central by 11.5 games.
