Adam Eaton of the White Sox homered Wednesday night for the first time since last April 12. MLB.com has the video. It’s unfortunately not embeddable.
That ended a span of 627 plate appearances without a dinger for Eaton. He has always been more of a gap-to-gap, line-drive hitter, but it’s a little surprising the 26-year-old doesn’t randomly send a few more over the fence considering how many chances he gets as the primary leadoff hitter for the White Sox.
U.S. Cellular Field on the south side of Chicago is known as a power-friendly park.
