White Sox beat perpetual losers

August 1 vs. Minnesota


Daily Sox Crop Report:
Bumper crop
Sox combine for 17 hits and 10 runs to beat the Twins

Short Take:   Man bites dog! Sox offense bails out Sale!

Normally, if Chris Sale gives up any more than three runs it spells bad news for the Chicago White Sox.

Well, tonight he gave up five runs in three innings, more than he gave up in all of last month. But the Sox put ten across the board and went on to win 10-8 in a truly bizarre game.  

Everything about this game was weird, starting with the Twins wearing their red batting practice tops. I guess the thinking was if you're going to play like a minor league team, you might as well dress like one.

Things got even weirder in the third.

After striking out the side in order, Sale gave up five runs (four earned) in the third. It was one of those freak things where he couldn't hit his spots and even a bad team (like say, the Twins) can make a pitcher pay if he isn't locating.

But here's the thing: the White Sox can score runs this year!

Slowly and surely, the Sox started chipping away. An RBI double by Conor Gillaspie double in the third. A Jose Abreu RBI single in the 4th (that's his 39th hit in his last 40 games). A Tyler Flowers homer in the fifth. An RBI double by Alexei in the sixth.

And then, in the eighth, it all came together.

The Sox put together one of the innings that the Twins used to have in the 2000s when they'd play the Sox. Six guys got a hit, and they were all singles. You had your seeing-eye singles, your singles the other way, the singles that just fell in front of the outfielders.

For the Twins, it must have been like drowning in three inches of water.

But the damage was lasting. The Sox would plate four runs, and they'd need them in the ninth.

The Twins strung together their own single-fest in the top of the 9th, with two infield singles and another one that just fell in front of Eaton. But, they couldn't get the big hit (or single) that they needed. They could only get one across.

I suspect it's because the Twins are crappy. They're perpetual losers.

 Buy! As long as they keep playing the Twins at least.
