At first, things were looking somewhat promising for a White Sox winner. Early on, the game was tied and then the Sox managed to take a 2-1 lead on Hector Gimenez’s first double. Gimenez was actually having a pretty good night. Unfortunately, he got hit by a pitch in the seventh inning and ended up leaving the game.
At that point, the Sox still were up by one on the Indians. And then the eighth inning came along with a new battery of Matt Thornton and Tyler Flowers. And the defense just went to crap. Some hits were given up, a terrible pick-off throw attempt and the next thing you know, the Sox are now trailing 3-2. » Continue reading “Almost But No As White Sox Lose To Indians”
I wanted good starting pitching and I got it. I wanted solid defense and so far, I’ve gotten it. As for offense, it was sparse and unfortunately, when opportunities arose to score, nothing happened. The White Sox dropped the opener to the Cleveland Indians by a final of 1-0.
The game turned out to be a pitching duel. After how Jose Quintana had pitched in his previous efforts, I was not expecting to see such a strong outing from him. Things got off to a great start for him when he struck out the side in the bottom of the first inning. Unfortunately, as good as he was, Justin Masterson was matching him. Masterson ended up pitching a complete game shutout tonight. He scattered five hits over the course of nine innings as well as striking out seven Sox batters. He also issued just one walk. » Continue reading “Offense Unable To Support White Sox In Pitching Duel”
After dropping the series opener, the Sox looked to get back to their winning ways. The Sox pitted Dylan Axelrod against a dominating pitcher: Felix Hernandez. In the end, the Sox pulled out a 4-3 winner.
Axelrod had a pretty good day Saturday. He lasted 5.2 innings, allowing one unearned run on three hits and two walks. The error from Jeff Keppinger in the second allowed Raul Ibanez to cross home. When Axelrod left the game, the Sox were tied at one with the Mariners, thus denying him the win. Donnie Veal came on to pitch a perfect inning with two strikeouts. He picked up the win, as the Sox scored two runs in the seventh to take the lead. » Continue reading “Alex Rios Homer Leads White Sox Past Mariners”
As I’m sure you’re all fully aware, SoxFest is this weekend. Fans from all over will flock downtown to meet some of their favorite players and hear some of them in panels. Before SoxFest starts, the White Sox wanted to give season ticket holders a chance to talk to Tom Paciorek and Robin Ventura during a conference call this afternoon.
As with every other season ticket holder chat, Gene Honda moderated the call, and we started with Wimpy. He’ll be a big part of SoxFest this weekend, as it will partly be a celebrationg of the 1983 “Winning Ugly” team. Wimpy is excited to be there this weekend with a great group of guys and a great coaching staff. He mentioned that while most fans remember the players, some people may have forgotten the personnel of the 1983 team. » Continue reading “Conference Call with Tom Paciorek and Robin Ventura”
