Snapping the Slump

August 27 vs. Cleveland


Daily Sox Crop Report:
Ripe pork
The future keepers reminded us of why we want them around.

Short Take:   Abreu drives in two runs to bring White Sox out of dreary stretch.

Since becoming a TBGR correspondent right before the All-Star break, I had yet to recap anything positive. I was beginning to empathize with what tebman has gone through this season. At least I went into Wednesday's tilt with the Cleveland Indians knowing I'd seen a victory in the afternoon with the Schaumburg Boomers. It turned out to be a good sign because the White Sox brought me my first win and more importantly, an end to their seven-game losing streak with a 3-2 win.

Hector Noesi took the mound against AL Cy Young candidate Corey Kluber, so the odds were not in the home team's favor. Like so many times this season though, Noesi showed he's been worth taking a chance on. In seven innings of work, he struck out five and walked just one. That first run charged to him came with two outs in the third thanks to a Roberto Perez double and subsequent Michael Bourn single. The second and final run was scored on a solo blast by Lonnie Chisenhall in the seventh. The good news is those were just footnotes in the final score.

The bats came alive in the bottom half of the aformentioned innings. Adam Eaton legged out a triple to further remind us of what we missed while he was out. Jose Abreu singled him in, then came home himself on an Adam Dunn double. Later on, Eaton moved Carlos Sanchez, who had singled, to third on a ground-rule double. Alexei Ramirez then hit a grounder to third, which Sanchez headed home on, but was tagged out. Although the replay showed he didn't receive a clear path to the plate, the call was upheld, further illustrating how stupid this rule has become. No matter though. Abreu singled Eaton home in the very next at-bat to give the Sox the lead for good.

But what would a 2014 White Sox winner be without some bullpen drama? Javy Guerra got through the eighth without any trouble. But in the ninth, he gave up a one-out single to Jason Kipnis and hit Zach Walters with two away. Faced with the go-ahead run on first, Robin Ventura elected to send Zach Putnam to the mound. The nerves settled down when Putnam got Chris Dickerson to fly out to left, ending the worst stretch of the season which dashed any remaining postseason hopes. For now though, let's enjoy any positive vibes we can get.

Believe it or not, the Sox can actually take this series by winning Thursday. John Danks will be the man to do it against Carlos Carrasco. You can watch on Comcast SportsNet at 7:10 if you're still interested in pre-callup baseball. Hey, it'll still count more than the fourth Bears preseason game going on at the same time.
