Cuban Connection Blasts Detroit

July 29, at Detroit


Daily Sox Crop Report:
God bless the Cubans!
Alexei and Abreu combine to drive in 7 of Sox's 11 runs in blowout winner

Short Take: Ramirez and Abreu drive in 5 runs in consecutive at bats as Sox blow out Tigers in series opener

Alexei Ramirez blew the lid off Tuesday nightís game in Detroit with a 1-out, bases clearing triple. Moments later, Jose Abreu put the nail in the Tigersí coffin with his MLB-leading 31st home run of the season, highlighting a 7-run 7th inning in support of Jose Quintana as the Sox rolled over the division-leading Tigers 11-4 in the first of a three-game series.

After taking 3 of 4 from Minnesota over the weekend, a day off Monday didnít stop the Sox bats or keep Quintana off his recent hot streak. Though he allowed two early runs to Detroit in the 2nd inning courtesy of an RBI triple by JD Martinez and sacrifice fly from Bryan Holaday, Quintana posted his 6th quality start in his last 8 games and moved to 3-0 over that stretch. He pitched 6 innings, scattering 9 hits and allowing only those 2 runs in the victory.

But the story tonight was the booming White Sox offense, who shellacked Anibel Sanchez for 5 runs over 6.1 innings and the Tigersí recently acquired reliever Joakim Soria, for 6 hits and 4 runs over a single out. The Sox would get back into the game in the 4th inning as Jose Abreu lead off the frame with a single to push his hit streak to 18 games. He would come around to score on an RBI single by Conor Gillaspie and the Sox would knot the game at 2 one batter later on a sacrifice fly by Gordon Beckham.

Sanchez and Quintana each threw up a few more goose eggs until the Sox broke the scoring wide open in the 7th inning, though they got plenty of help from Detroitís miserable defense as the Tigers made two errors in the frame to help the Sox along. With a runner at first, Gordon Beckham grounded into a potential double play that was botched by Miguel Cabrera at 3rd base. Tyler Flowers's single to left field drove home a run but he was not credited with an RBI as Rajai David misplayed the ball in the field. The Sox, however, were more than accepting of Detroitís generous gifts, as Alexei cleared the bases and Abreuís homer put the game away. Adam Dunn went back-to-back with Abreu, launching a solo homer to right field to cap the inningís scoring at 7 runs.

Abreu capped the Soxís scoring with a nifty two-run double down the right field line off Ian Krol in the 8th inning that closed the book on a 3-4 night with a homer, two runs scored, and 4 driven in. His batting average now sits just under under .300 at .299 and he leads all of baseball with 31 home runs and 83 RBI. The Tigers scored 2 meaningless runs off Taylor Thompson in the 8th.

Tonightís win moves the Sox to 52-55 and 7 games behind Detroit with 55 games left in the 2014 season. The two teams will square off again Wednesday night as Hector Noesi will face reigning AL Cy Young winner Max Scherzer. The Sox need to win one of their last two games in July to record their first winning month of the season. First pitch will be at 6:08 PM Central time and the game will be televised on Comcast Sports Net.

Everything clicking tonight, good hitting, good pitching, even some throwing some nice leather in the field. Is it all coming together?
