Saturday night was no different when the Sox lost to the Angels, 3-2. » Continue reading “Lack of Run Support Dooms White Sox”

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”

The Sox got on the board quickly in the first inning after Gonzalez had a shaky start. After striking out Alejandro De Aza to lead off the inning, Gonzalez gave up back-to-back singles to Jeff Keppinger, who broke an 0-for-19 streak, and Alex Rios. During Alexei Ramirez’s at-bat, Gonzalez balked, allowing Keppinger to score before Ramirez flew out to end the inning. » Continue reading “White Sox Lose to Nationals After Allowing Four Homers”
