But that’s not all: This game will be featured as the first of 18 games to be streamed live on Peacock. Peacock will be the new and exclusive home base (pun intended) of one game per week, occurring on Sunday mornings.
The three-game series between the two Sox began on Friday night with a 4-2 White Sox victory.
Boston entered the matchup with questionable momentum following Thursday’s performance against the Angels. Trevor Story did not take fans’ reactions well when the team was shut out 8-0 by the Angels.

Similarly, the White Sox played a great pair of games against the Cubs, resulting in their first three-game win streak since April 9-13, when they won four games consecutively. It looks like Matt Foster got his groove back.
