No Chance

May 7, at NY Mets


Today's Game Rating:
1 STAR
There was one star tonight. His name was Hector.

Short Take:Harvey, Santiago duel for 9 innings before Mets win in 10th

It’s hard to see a line of 0 runs and 1 hit in 10 innings for these White Sox; a team whose near comical offensive ineptitude the past few years has reached such lows as being no-hit by Franciso “The Human Walk Machine” Liriano and basically never scoring a run ever off the fearsome Kansas City twosome of Jeremy Guthrie and Bruce Chen, and not imagine another wasted night by the White Sox offense. And while yes, the Sox lost another game they theoretically could have won Tuesday in Queens, sometimes you just have to know when you’re beat. Tuesday was that night as Matt Harvey, the Mets’ up-and-coming superstar completely dominated the White Sox with a repertoire of a upper-90s fastball, devastating breaking pitches, and a wipe out changeup that would have beaten any team in the Majors, let alone a group that is collectively struggling to hit .220. Mets 1, Sox 0.

The lone offensive highlight for the South Siders came in the 7th (and I use the term highlight pretty liberally here) as Alex Rios singled on the infield, beating Ruben Tejada’s throw by an eyelash, to break up Harvey’s bid at perfection and ultimately be the only White Sox baserunner of the evening. Otherwise, yes, Harvey was that good. But lost in that footnote is Hector Santiago, making his 2nd start in spot of Gavin Floyd and, who matched Harvey inning for shutout inning for 7 strong frames, keeping the Sox somehow alive in a game that should have effectively been over long before. With John Danks on target to return by the end of the month the Sox will at least have one pleasant problem; 6 starters throwing effectively and only 5 spots to fill.

The Mets finally broke through for the win in the 10th, ironically when they lifted Harvey for pinch hitter Mike Baxter, who doubled into the right field corner to score Ike Davis for the lone run of the game. Nate Jones was credited with the loss who, after throwing a perfect ninth, walked Davis to lead off the tenth and set the wheels in motion for the loss. Matt Lindstrom also chipped in with a perfect 8th, but that’s about all there is to write about tonight’s loss.

The Sox and Mets will conclude this brief two game series tomorrow evening as Jake Peavy returns to the hill against Jeremy Hefner. Peavy will be making his first start in 10 days after recovering from back spasms and Hefner is a 27-year-old still in search of his first win of the season. First pitch is at 6:10 PM and will be broadcast on Channel 26 WCIU.

Want to give 2 thumbs up for pitcher's duels, but too many Sox "O" stinkers make this hard to appreciate
