White Sox’s Jose Abreu ties the game with six homers in three games


CHICAGO – Chicago White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu tied a major league record on Sunday in his first homerun against the Cubs, marking his fourth straight appearance at home with a homerun and a sixth series circuit.“I’m never happy with what I do,” Abreu said after the Sox’s 2-1 loss to the Cubs. ” I can do better. I can do more. This is why I work so hard. But it really feels good to do something like that. I prefer to win today. ”

The home run was the only record of the game for the White Sox, who scored their last 20 points via the long ball. That’s three points short of a record set by the Milwaukee Brewers last season.

His six home runs over the weekend tie him with four more for the most in a three-game streak in the era of the live ball, which dates back to 1920. It’s also the most home run of any player. of all the series this season.

“We know what we are capable of doing,” Abreu said. “We can’t move quickly from here to the playoffs. At the end of the season, we’ll see what the outcome will be. “
