The 2022 MLB All-Star Game and surrounding festivities are finally in the books. This year’s installment of the Midsummer Classic resulted in a 3-2 victory for the American League. The Chicago White Sox had two representatives in the 2022 All-Star Game: shortstop Tim Anderson and reliever Liam Hendriks. Here’s how they fared.

Tim Anderson

Anderson started at shortstop and batted seventh for the American League. His defense produced the first noteworthy White Sox moment of the night as he teamed up with Andres Gimenez of the Cleveland Guardians to turn a flashy first-inning double play.

In the top of the second inning, Anderson grounded out to first base in his first at-bat of the night.

The White Sox shortstop flashed the leather in the bottom of the third when he scooped a sharp grounder up the middle and threw out Manny Machado of the San Diego Padres to record the second out of the frame.

In the top of the fourth, Anderson recorded his first-ever MLB All-Star Game hit on a single to left field off Tony Gonsolin of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Tim Anderson’s night came to an end when Xander Bogaerts of the Boston Red Sox replaced him at shortstop in the bottom of the fourth.

Liam Hendriks

The Chicago White Sox closer entered the game in the bottom of the eighth with two outs and a runner on first. He relieved New York Yankees’ closer Clay Holmes.

Hendriks faced just one batter: Atlanta Braves’ catcher Travis d’Arnaud. After falling behind 2-0, the fiery Australian induced a flyout to centerfielder Julio Rodriguez.

Hendriks, who was mic’d up, had a comedic exchange with the Seattle Mariners’ outfielder when requesting the baseball to save for authentication.

Hendriks earned a hold as the American League held on to win the following inning.
