José Abreu moved within one home run of No. 200 for his stellar White Sox career by connecting for a third-inning grand slam off Angels left-hander Andrew Heaney Friday night at Angel Stadium. It was Abreu’s third career grand slam.
The White Sox didn’t have a hit off Heaney until Yermín Mercedes singled to center with one out in the third, marking his first career hit. Mercedes moved to second on Nick Madrigal’s single to left and the inning stayed alive when third baseman Anthony Rendon bobbled a Tim Anderson grounder and was only able to get an out at second.
Luis Robert battled to earn a seven-pitch walk and Abreu connected on the next pitch for his blast to right-center field. Abreu has topped the American League in RBIs in each of the last two seasons and has now driven in 64 over his last 62 regular-season games.
Abreu would be the fifth player to hit 200 home runs with the White Sox. He would join Frank Thomas (448), Paul Konerko (432), Harold Baines (221) and Carlton Fisk (214).
