Watch: AJ Pollock gets game-winning hit for Chicago White Sox

Notre Dame alumnus aj pollock is in the middle of the worst season of his career. He’s frequently been cited as one reason the Chicago White Sox arguably are baseball’s most disappointing team in 2022. It’s a club that had World Series aspirations but can’t even get above .500.

For one night at least, Pollock’s struggles were forgotten when they really needed to be. The White Sox already had lost the first game of a doubleheader against the division rival Cleveland Guardians and were in danger of letting another one slip away. They trailed by a run in the bottom of the eighth inning but had the bases loaded with two outs. That’s when Pollock came up and did this:

That 5-4 score held up, giving the Sox their first win of the season’s second half. For Irish fans, it had to be a thrill to see that Pollock’s heroics came in front of a national TV audience. For Sox fans, any win is welcoming right now. They sure got one at a needed time.
