Aroldis was greeted by AJ Pollock with a homer 381 feet to left field, his second hit this year, both in the last three games he’s pitched.

Already with a 2×1 disadvantage on the board, Chapman dominated the White Sox’s Cuban catcher, Yasmani Grandal, on a fly ball to left field himself, but it was complicated again by walking Andrew Vaughn, who reached second thanks to a wild pitch from the pitcher himself and then to third on a pass ball from catcher Jose Trevino.

To complete an afternoon to forget, Adam Engel doubled him, again to the left wing, to bring the third and final run of the game.

The man from Holguín suffered his second defeat in this 2022, both in his last four relays, in addition, for the first time since June 30, 2021, he allowed two or more runs in one start.

On that occasion it was the Angels who made four for him, all clean, thanks to three walks and a home run. As a curious fact, he did not lose that game, since he arrived with an 8×4 advantage and left the match even.

For Chapman, this was his 17th start of the season, in which he has nine saves in nine opportunities, with 15 strikeouts and 10 walks in 14 innings of action. His ERA increased to 3.86 and his WHIP to 1.643.

To give you an idea of ​​how fateful this month has been for Aroldis, I tell you that of the 13 hits he has received this year, 11 have been in May, in only seven outings. During April, in 10 appearances, he only got hit twice and for the first six, no one could hit him with a single hit.

If this is not enough data, then know that during his last five reliefs he has allowed at least one run in each of them and of his seven appearances in May, in five of them two or more opposing batters have reached base.
