Naylor, Guardians Shock White Sox

Jonathan Grant | May 10th, 2022

The Chicago White Sox were headed toward a fairly routine win on Monday night. Until they weren’t. Up by an 8-2 score heading into the ninth, the Cleveland Guardians made a comeback just short of miraculous behind the charge of Josh Naylor and co.

Naylor, who had already had an RBI double in the eighth, had one of the best late-game performances of all time as he hit a tying grand slam in the ninth to force extras before pounding a game-winning three-run homer on the road in the 11th. The 12-9 win saw Naylor become the first player in MLB history to rack up eight RBIs or more after the eighth frame, quite the feat for a man that is only coming back from a nasty leg injury sustained last year. Thanks to the win, the Guardians moved to 15-14, a game up on their hosts and three games off the early-season AL Central pacers known as the Minnesota Twins.
