Double the Suck

June 28 vs Cleveland


Today's Game Rating:
0 Stars
The movie started well but ended with the death of the Sox, both times.

Short Take:   Sox again blow losing both games of a doubleheader to Cleveland 19-10 and 9-8.

Game 1:

The city was in a great mood celebrating the parade and rally for the Stanley Cup Champion Blackhawks. Unfortunately, the Sox couldn't continue that winning mood as they started a doubleheader against Cleveland. We started well but got bombed in the end. Hector Santiago and Brian Omogrosso highlighted a disgraceful game as the Sox lost game 1 of the DH 19-10.

The Sox offense in the first looked great. We chased Indians starter Trevor Bauer in the first after he gave up five runs. Homers by Dunn and Keppinger helped put the runs on the board for the Sox.

Hector Santiago gave it right back in the top of the second. RBI's from Jason Kipnis and Nick Swisher eventually made a 5-0 game a 5-5 game.

Brian Omogrosso came in to pitch the fourth and fifth innings. That's when the real suckage occurred. Over those two innings Omogrosso would give up five extra base hits, four doubles and a triple. Cleveland plated nine runs in those two innings, all charged to Omogrosso.

With the Sox losing 14-5, we did mount a mini comeback. A long homer from Tyler Flowers, along with RBI's from Gordon Beckham and Jeff Keppinger, we closed the gap to 14-10. Then more suckage would occur.

Ramon Troncoso came in to pitch for the Sox. After giving up a homer to Ryan Raburn in the seventh, he allowed the Indians to load the bases in the eighth. Alexei Ramirez then tried to field a ball off the bat of Mark Reynolds but threw the ball away at third, allowing two more runs. By the time it was over, it was 19-10. Cleveland had 21 hits to go with eight doubles. Please blow up this team!!

The game lasted over four hours and saw 406 pitches thrown.

Game 2:

Things started the opposite in game 2. Jose Quintana gave up four runs in the top of the first thanks to two walks, a passed ball, and RBI's from Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley to make it 4-0.

The Sox would close the gap at 4-2 by the fifth thanks to RBI's from Gillaspie and Keppinger.

Down 5-2 in the bottom of the sixth, the Sox would actually take the lead after we loaded the bases against Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco. Alejandro De Aza hit a two-run double to cut the Cleveland lead to just a run. Rich Hill came in to relieve Carrasco and gave up a two-run single to Adam Dunn to put the Sox in the lead 6-5.

In the bottom of the eighth we'd add two insurance runs. A double by Alexei Ramirez and a triple by Jeff Keppinger put us up 8-5.

It would all be for not in the ninth with Addison Reed coming in to close. Cleveland started with two hits before an RBI single from Michael Bourn and a wild pitch from Reed cut the Sox lead to 8-7. Cleveland would tie the game on a Kipnis sacrifice fly before Captain DBag himself, Nick Swisher, stepped up to the plate. Reed grooved him a fastball right down the middle that Swisher pounded to right for a solo homer to put Cleveland up 9-8.

The Sox would go quietly in the ninth to end a long and pathetic day/night of baseball.

On Saturday, June 29th, the Sox again face Cleveland. Dylan Axelrod faces Ubaldo Jimenez. Game time is 3:10 and can be seen on WGN.

WSI's
Hawk and Stoney's Thumb Guide:
  Hawk: "Thumbs down, we suck. Yaz would be tearing these guys a new one." Stone Pony: "Two thumbs down. By allowing 19 and 9 runs, respectively, the Sox won't win too many games if we continue to give up that many runs."
