Moncada went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Friday's 11-4 win over the Twins. Moncada has slipped below .300 after a hot start to the season but is still hitting with regularity. He's had a hit in 36 of his 49 starts and has never gone more than two games without getting on base via hit. That consistency has led to 32 RBI, second on the White Sox behind only Jose Abreu.
Moncada went 1-for-5 with an RBI double and run scored in Thursday's win over the Astros. Moncada drove in an RBI double and scored another run to help lift the White Sox to a 4-0 victory.

Moncada, who was hit by a pitch on his left knee Sunday, started Monday and went 0-for-4 in a 3-0 loss to the Astros. Moncada walked gingerly to first base after getting plunked Sunday but apparently felt well enough the day after to remain in the lineup.
Moncada was hit on the left knee by a pitch but remained in Sunday's game, Brian Sandalow of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Moncada took his time getting down to first base following the HBP and was able to finish out the game. Seeing how Moncada responds the day after will dictate his availability for Monday night's game in Houston.
Moncada went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Friday's 10-2 loss to the Blue Jays. Moncada was part of the White Sox's lone rally when they plated two in the third inning after Toronto jumped out to a 7-0 lead. The soon-to-be 23-year-old is up to 29 RBI through 42 games, a much better pace than 2018, when he didn't drive in his 29th run until the 69th game June 24. Part of that is due to the team taking him out of the leadoff spot where RBI opportunities aren't as plentiful, but the major reason for his increased run production is that he's been swinging at hittable pitches that he let pass by last season. He's averaged 3.85 pitches per plate appearance this season, down from 4.11 last year, while making more consistent contact when swinging.
