The Chicago White Sox began their 2024 season with a four-game losing streak, but they turned things around with a victory against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night. Despite their slow start, the White Sox have managed to match the 2021 Braves in terms of season stats through five games. They recorded 28 hits, 11 walks, six home runs and a .329 slugging percentage while their pitchers allowed 11 walks, mirroring the 2021 Braves’ stats when they won the World Series.

This alignment with a successful team like the Braves is promising for Chicago, especially given the Braves’ recent dominance of the NL East. However, Tuesday’s win is only one game away with 157 regular season games left to play. The White Sox are currently 1-4 and in last place in the AL Central, with a slim chance of making the postseason according to FanGraphs. Despite the odds, history shows that a slow start like the White Sox’s can still lead to a successful season, as seen with the Braves in 2021.

While a championship may seem far away for the White Sox, most fans would be satisfied with a winning record.
