You Just Have to Tip Your Cap

August 11 vs. Minnesota


Today's Game Rating:
0 STARS
Zzzzzzzzz...........

Short Take: The White Sox offense was sleepwalking like usual Sunday at U.S. Cellular Field.

Well, at least the White Sox didn't waste a quality start this time. This team's slogan for the 2013 season is "Make An Impact." It might as well be "Tip Your Cap," given the way the White Sox offense makes mediocre pitchers look like Cy Young.

On Sunday, the Sox failed to get a runner as far as third base in seven innings against Kevin Correia (8-8), Minnesota's journeyman right-hander. Correia struck out seven and allowed only five hits over seven shutout innings as the Twins defeated the Sox 5-2 on a pleasant, but sleepy Sunday afternoon at U.S. Cellular Field.

The only offense of the day for the Sox? Well, that came in the bottom of the ninth inning after the outcome was no longer in doubt. Adam Dunn and Conor Gillaspie hit the obligatory meaningless solo home runs to make the score 5-2, but let's be honest, this game wasn't really that close.

Jose Quintana (6-4) didn't have his best command on this afternoon. He was missing location with his fastball all day. After getting through the first four innings unscathed, his poor control finally caught up to him in Minnesota's five-run fifth inning. You knew Quintana was in trouble when he walked Minnesota's No. 9 hitter, some .219-hitting shortstop named Bernier. Right after that, Brian Dozier hit a 3-run homer to left to give Minnesota the lead. After a Jamey Carroll single, Joe Mauer hit another home run to make it 5-0. The game was over at that point. The Sox never seriously threatened to get back in the game.

Dylan Axelrod pitched four shutout innings of relief to keep things from getting completely out of hand. That was pretty much the best thing that happened today: Axelrod saved the bullpen. Hooray. Pretty sad, huh?

Minnesota leaves Chicago having taken three of the four games in the series. Next up for the Sox: a series with first-place Detroit. Chris Sale (7-11, 2.77 ERA) gets the start in the opener Monday night. He'll be opposed by right-hander Doug Fister (10-5, 3.50 ERA). Game time is 7:10 p.m. You can watch on Comcast SportsNet.

I'll tell you what, Stone Pony, with our Sox being about 87 games out of first place, that gives me more time to tell stories about YAZ!
