The Sox had their first game against the Royals postponed on Friday, so they opened the series Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, the Royals have been relatively good while the Sox have been relatively bad. This was the case today, as they lost 2-0. » Continue reading “Guthrie’d: White Sox Blanked By Royals”
It appears that the White Sox are actually capable of scoring runs! Who knew! They happened to score quite a few of them tonight, beating the Blue Jays 7-0 behind a great performance from Jose Quintana.
Quintana pitched 6.2 solid innings, allowing just five hits and two walks while striking out seven. He picked up his first win of the season, as he was backed up with some run support. Jesse Crain pitched 1.1 innings allowing just one hit, and Donnie Veal pitched a perfect ninth, striking out one. » Continue reading “White Sox Blank Blue Jays Behind Quintana’s Strong Start”
After losing a close game last night, the White Sox looked to turn things around. Cheryl mentioned briefly yesterday that the Sox will finish this 10-game road trip with a losing record. Despite that, there are still many games to be played, and the Sox needed to get back on the winning track. Facing off against the Blue Jays and pitcher Josh Johnson, the Sox sent Dylan Axelrod to the bump, and the Sox pulled out a 4-3 win.
Axelrod pitched poorly his last time out, lasting just 3.2 innings against the Nationals. This time out, he had a much better performance. He lasted six innings, giving up two runs on seven hits and a walk. The two runs were both solo home runs, one from Colby Rasmus and one from JP Arencibia. » Continue reading “White Sox Win Despite Limited Offense”
The White Sox continued their winnings ways with a 5-2 win over the Royals. All runs came courtesy of the long ball. Adam Dunn, Alexei Ramirez, and Dayan Viciedo all hit their first home runs of the season, while Tyler Flowers knocked his second.
There were runs. There were lots and lots of runs. And the White Sox scored them all, beating the Indians 11-0. » Continue reading “Too Little, Too Late”

The Sox lost today. But you probably already knew that. The Tigers won. Again, you probably already knew that. The Tragic number at the start of the day was at three. Now it is at one. It wasn’t a pretty start for Jose Quintana who was throwing a bajillion pitches in just the first inning. So many in fact, that Philip Humber was up and warming in the bullpen.
Sure, he settled down but as usual, the offense was just not around today. Yeah, they put up a couple of runs. And yeah, they managed to string together some hits ( a whopping FIVE in total) but it was just too little too late. David Price is a 20-game winner now. There was a brief moment when the Sox looked like they would get to him, but alas, it didn’t happen. Remember when this team was AMAZABALLS with RISP? If you don’t, it’s ok as it was such a long time ago. Now, this team is just looking lifeless. » Continue reading “And Then There Was One”
Yes, White Sox, let’s keep playing horribly. That’s just what you need to get into the postseason. Especially since the Tigers won this afternoon. Unfortunately, the Sox continued to play like crap and lost to the Rays, 3-2. » Continue reading “Falling Further Out”
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”
Much of my evening consisted of yelling at my TV, telling the Sox to score runs since the Tigers were either winning or had won, depending on the time of yelling. More often than not, the Sox didn’t listen. Thankfully they did at some point, beating the Indians 5-4. This also snapped their ugly losing streak. » Continue reading “Streak Snapped! A Win!”
