White Sox: Tim Anderson leaves Sunday Night Baseball with injury

Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson left the first inning of Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.

The Chicago White Sox entered Sunday evening looking to tie up their four-game series against the Los Angeles Angels. They had to contend with Shoehi Ohtani on the mound and in the batters box, but they also had to deal with an early exit for their star player, shortstop Tim Anderson.

After the top of the first inning, the White Sox pulled Anderson from the game due to a hamstring injury. The ailment stems from Anderson’s first at-bat to leadoff the White Sox, he came up lame when running to first base on his ground out.

As a result, the White Sox called upon Luery Garcia to replace Anderson at shortstop for the remainder of the game.
