A win! A win! Somehow the Sox pulled off another win! I know, I’m surprised too. With the way they’ve been playing, it’s a miracle that they actually score runs. But they did tonight, and I’ve been doing a happy dance. They managed to beat the Twins, 4-2. » Continue reading “White Sox Win? White Sox Win!”
It’s not a good sign when I check WhiteSox.com to see who we’re playing and who’s pitching and still think, “We’re probably gonna lose.” Sadly that’s my thought process lately because this team has almost no offensive production. Saturday night was no different when the Sox lost to the Angels, 3-2. » Continue reading “Lack of Run Support Dooms White Sox”
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”

Pitching was all sorts of bad tonight. Gavin Floyd started the game, and he didn’t last very long. In 2.2 innings pitched, he gave up two runs on two hits and two walks. He left in the third inning with a flexor muscle strain in his right elbow. Hector Santiago came on in relief, and he didn’t have a much better night. He pitched 3.2 innings, giving up four runs on ten hits. » Continue reading “White Sox Get Stung, Lose to Rays”
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 came home for a ten-game homestand, and they didn’t get off to the greatest start. Friday night’s game was postponed due to the weather, and Saturday afternoon’s game didn’t quite go their way, as they lost to the Twins 2-1 in ten innings.
Pitching had a little bit of a rough day today. Jake Peavy started for the Sox, and he had a great outing. He lasted seven innings, giving up one run on six hits and four walks. He also struck out nine. » Continue reading “Peavy’s Good Start Wasted as White Sox Lose in Extras”
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”
Today’s game just didn’t get off to a great start. One pitch and a run on the board for the Cleveland Indians. If you’ve been watching the Sox the last few games, you probably got a pit in your stomach thinking, “here we go again” and that the game was lost already. The offense has been putrid. The starting pitching has been abysmal and Jake “Dirt Bag” Peavy had to go and serve up a nice juicy pitch for Michael Bourn to hit out of the park right away.
Fortunately, after getting off to the worst road start in over 35 years, Jake and the team settled down and managed to stop the road bleeding with a 3-1 win over the Indians. Offense came in the form of Paul Konerko hitting a two-run home run in the sixth inning to put the Sox ahead in the game 2-1. Alejandro De Aza added his own solo shot in the eighth inning as insurance for the Sox. » Continue reading “Road Win For White Sox? Road Win For White Sox!”
