Sox Rattled by Dbacks Rook

May 11 vs Arizona Diamondbacks


Daily Sox Crop Report: Growth stunted by Chase Anderson's sharp MLB debut.

Short Take: Sox hitters can't crack Dbacks starter Chase Anderson, Dbacks win 5- 1

Happy Mother's Day to fellow White Sox moms, and also moms of White Sox fans everywhere! Unfortunately, today's Sox game made me want to run home crying for my mommy. On a pleasant Sunday in front of 18,000 fans, the Sox again could not muster up anything against a starter that they had not seen before. The Arizona Diamondbacks won the rubber game of the series 5-1.

Chase Anderson, making his MLB debut for the Diamondbacks, pitched a cap-tipping-worthy game. He threw different pitches at different speeds and with pinpoint accuracy, baffling White Sox hitters. Anderson held the Sox to 2 hits over 5.1 innings, and only allowed 1 earned run (a home run by Moises Sierra in the 6th).

Although Hector Noesi pitched an adequate 6 innings with 8 hits, 3 earned runs, 3 walks and 4 Ks, he ran up 117 pitches in doing that. In addition, the Dbacks took advantage of several mistakes made by Sox fielders and turned them into runs.

Alejandro De Aza bungled the very first play of the game, magically turning a Geraldo Parra fly ball hit into a triple. After De Aza broke back toward the wall, but then realized he needed to go forward, his feet comically tangled themselves up and he completely missed the ball. I'd wager that he missed it on purpose - since he didn't touch it, he didn't get charged with error, and poor Noesi got to take the fall for the earned run when Parra eventually scored.

Then in the 9th, Adam Dunn knocked down a Paul Goldschmidt hard-hit ball at first base, but then lofted it like a slow-pitch softball to reliever Frank Francisco. Goldschmidt was safe, and Miguel Montero followed up with a home run to increase the Dbacks' lead.

The White Sox seemed flat today. They were unable to hit or even outguess Anderson. The only run of the game was courtesy of Moises Sierra, who hit a home run off Anderson after a long at- bat in the 6th inning.

The normally mild-mannered Robin Ventura expressed his displeasure in the team's performance during the post game conference. "It stunk", Ventura said. He called out the Sox for not supporting a decent start by Noesi. Ventura also said that "something will happen. I don't know what, but something will." Is he suggesting roster moves? Will he beat certain players with a wet noodle? Take away the post-game buffet? Call certain players' moms on Mother's Day and tattle on them? Inquiring minds want to know…

The Sox head to the west coast for a three-game set against the talented Oakland As. On Monday, John Danks (3-2, 4.93 era, 1.48 WHIP) faces Jesse Chavez (2-1, 2.47 era, 1.03 WHIP) at 9:05 pm CST, seen locally on WCIU.
