Yoan Moncada joins Frank Thomas in White Sox history books

Yoan Moncada has only been with the White Sox for a few months and he's already etched himself in the record books next to a Hall of Famer.

The White Sox rookie second baseman had the best statistical game of his career in Thursday's 17-7 clobbering of the Detroit Tigers.

Moncada reached base six times vs. the Tigers, becoming the youngest White Sox player to accomplish the feat since Frank Thomas in 1990.

Moncada also notched a career-high four hits, cranked out his 5th home run of the season and scored five runs.

Moncada's five runs vs. the Tigers also put him in the same company as a recent Hall of Famer.

Moncada now owns a .229/.353/.407 slash line with five home runs and 15 RBI in 38 games with the White Sox in 2017.
