Tonight was it. The end. The finale. Fin.
After playing the way they did tonight, the Sox don’t deserve a shot at the postseason. They lost to the Cleveland Indians, 6-4. Not only did they lose the game, they lost first place in the Central, as the Tigers beat the Royals 5-4. » Continue reading “Adios First Place”

But it could have been worse.
The White Sox looked to keep their distance from the Tigers, but it was not meant to be. The Sox lost 8-6 and now have only a one-game lead on Detroit.
Gavin Floyd returned from the disabled list tonight and started off well. He ran into some trouble in the fifth inning. He gave up a hit and a walk to lead off the inning. He was responsible for all three runs scored in the inning, and that put the Tigers up 3-1. » Continue reading “Well Then…That Sucked”
So far in his career, Myers is 89-79 with a 4.27 ERA and 12 complete games in 249 starts. Over 93 career relief appearances, he is 5-10 with a 3.4 ERA. He also has over 40 saves. Word on his role is not known yet, but he could possibly move into the closer role.
This season, he 0-4 with a 3.52 ERA and 19 saves. That is in 35 games with the Astros this year
More as it is known. In other news, Jesse Crain was activated for today’s game and Brian Omogrosso was sent back to Charlotte. Gavin Floyd is also slated to start on Monday.
Yeah, so Philip Humber didn’t suck tonight. Given the way he had pitched before landing on the disabled list in June, he wasn’t inspiring much much faith that he wouldn’t be bad again tonight. And after his teammates gave him a two run lead to work with in the top of the first inning, Philip apparently couldn’t shut the Red Sox down. So the second inning began as though the game hadn’t started yet.
Luckily, Philip settled down and the White Sox added more runs to go ahead by a score of 6-2. Philip lasted for six innings and then Brian Omogrosso came in the game to relieve him. It was nice to see Philip had settled down and giving the team some strong innings. Omogrosso didn’t give up any runs in his inning of work. Matt Thornton came in and he ended up giving up three runs. That brought the Red Sox within two runs as the score was 7-5 heading to the ninth inning. » Continue reading “Surprisingly, No Suck As White Sox Best Red Sox”
Nineteen runs. Twenty-one hits. All of the starters scored a run and got a hit except for one. Chris Sale cruised to his tenth victory. And the White Sox didn’t lay an egg in the first game home after a road trip.
Yes, it was a good night for the White Sox. It all started with Alejandro De Aza getting a hit to lead off the game. Then Chicago’s new favorite third baseman Kevin Youkilis went boom right away. Big Donkey apparently wanted in on that action right away and he went boom back-to-back with Youk. All told the Sox would score four runs in the first inning.
Turns out, that was all that would be needed as Chris went out in the second and shut the Rangers down. The Rangers wouldn’t get a hit until the fourth inning when Josh Hamilton hit a single to right field. At first, it looked like Alex Rios caught the ball, but it was ruled he didn’t so the Rangers broke up the no-hitter. Of course, the Sox kept pouring on the runs and added more in the second inning, fifth and seventh innings. The Rangers wouldn’t get on the board until the eighth inning. » Continue reading “A White Sox Hit & Run Parade!”
