With two celebratory showers in one game, Yolmer Sanchez had the best 24-hour stretch of all time

Have a day, Yolmer Sánchez.

Thanks to some inclement weather in Chicago, the White Sox infielder had what I'll call the single-best baseball game of any player in history.

Who else has enjoyed two celebratory showers in the same game? If that doesn't make sense as you read it, I understand your confusion. Monday night's game was suspended in the fifth inning, and Sanchez -- who was on the bases when play was paused -- did this:

That was the fifth inning. Play was resumed on Tuesday before the regularly-scheduled Royals-White Sox game in the evening, and wouldn't you know it? Sanchez drove in the winning run in Chicago's 4-3 win.

Naturally, that led to another shower, this time of the yellow Gatorade variety courtesy of teammate Reynaldo López.

Have you had as great a 24-hour stretch as Yolmer? Probably not.

I haven't either. None of us have. Yolmer's in a class all his own.
