Luis Robert went 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored, and two strikeouts as the White Sox fell to the A's 6-4 in Game 3 of their Wild Card series on Thursday.
The AL-rookie of the year candidate absolutely demolished a Mike Fiers offering in the top of the second inning to open up the scoring. It was measured at 487 feet, which is the longest home run hit at the Oakland Coliseum during the stat cast era. Robert was responsible for Chicago's next run as well as he singled in James McCann in the top of the third inning. The impressive rookie had a bad September, which put a damper on his rate stats, but still put together a solid season overall. He slashed .233/.302/.436 to go along with 11 home runs, 31 RBI, and nine stolen bases. He will be drafted as a top-10 outfielder in fantasy drafts next season.
