The White Sox offense had itself a day Wednesday in Arizona, winning a Cactus League game with the Cincinnati Reds by a 14-12 score.
The South Siders hit four homers, but none was more dramatic — or exciting for rebuild-loving White Sox fans — than Luis Robert's go-ahead grand slam in the eighth inning at Camelback Ranch.
Not bad for Robert's first start in a spring training game.
Robert's seen a good deal of action so far, but mostly in the field, coming into Wednesday with a pair of singles in just six at-bats. That spring stat line got a bit of a boost Wednesday, with Robert going 1-for-4 with a walk and the slam.
Robert was drawing a crowd and making eyes pop early in spring training whenever he and fellow highly ranked outfield prospect Eloy Jimenez took batting practice. He was already generating a ton of buzz, and now he's got a grand slam to go along with it.
Robert, it should be noted, has yet to play a minor league baseball game in the United States, his lone action since joining the White Sox organization coming in 28 games in the Dominican Summer League.
Ranked the No. 28 prospect in baseball and the No. 3 prospect in the White Sox stacked farm system, Robert is still a ways away from the big leagues. But he'll have fans paying close attention to everything he does in the minors this year.
