Lucas Harrell to the Rescue

July 30 vs. Oakland

AJ

Threets

Threets was a little wild out of the pen; nice to see AJ coming out of his slump

Short Take:  The Sox win their 12th straight home game as Lucas Harrell fills in as an emergency replacement for Daniel Hudson and pitches six innings of one-run baseball.

It was a busy Friday on the South Side of Chicago. Earlier in the day, before their scheduled game against the Oakland A’s, the Sox traded promising right-handed starter Daniel Hudson to their frequent trading partner Arizona Diamondbacks. In exchange, the Sox received the talented Edwin Jackson. With Hudson scheduled to start against the A’s on Friday night, the Sox were forced to call up Lucas Harrell to make his major league debut on short notice. Never fear. Harrell rose to the occasion after a shaky first inning, giving the Sox six strong innings and helping lead them to a 6-1 victory.

Harrell walked a tight-rope early, throwing 45 pitches through the first two innings. He was aided by a double play to escape the first, and he masterfully pitched out of a bases-loaded one-out situation in the 2nd. Harrell let the A’s on the board in the top of the 4th when Cliff Pennington singled in Mark Ellis with a two-out hit. That’s all the A’s would muster on the night, however.

The Sox took an early lead in the bottom of the first when Juan Pierre singled, stole 2nd, and came home on an Alex Rios base hit. The Sox scored three more in the 4th to take a 4-1 lead, with Konerko and “Tank” Viciedo hitting key doubles, while AJ and Bacon knocked them in with clutch base hits. Beckham added another RBI in the 6th when he singled in AJ, and the Sox tacked on one more insurance run in the 7th when Paulie “got the job done” with a sac fly to score the Cuban Missile.

The red-hot Sox offense handed the 6-1 lead over to the bullpen, and things were out of reach for the Swingin’ A’s. The “B-Team” relief core, Santos, Threets and Pena, held the A’s down to secure the victory, the fifth in a row for the Good Guys (12th straight at home and 34th win out of 45 games since June 9).

TBGR Diary:
 The Sox still hold a 1.5-game lead over the Twins in the AL Central. Don’t stop now, boys.
