Rodon Can't Write Off Errors

June 9th vs. the Boston Red Sox


WSI Playdate Funtime:
Double Frustration
A bobbled play here, a bad throw there, and frustration is doubled.

Short Take:In Carlos Rodon's comeback outing, the White Sox lost to the Red Sox 4-2, thanks to unearned Boston runs and not enough earned Chicago runs.

Welcome back, Carlos. We've missed you. We missed your sinker, your fastball, and things like seven stikeouts in six innings.

What we wish we could miss are the errors the White Sox commit. So many, and usually at the wrong times. The White Sox lost to the Red Sox in Boston 4-2, and of those four runs only two were earned. Rodon did what he had to do, but it wasn't enough.

I usually find myself as I draft these epistles falling back on the pretext that it's a rebuilding year. It is, and the guys wearing the gloves are full of potential. But they're also full of baseball skills they should be displaying when they handle the ball. Nuts.

But enough kvetching. Today's game, though a loss, was Rodon's story. He had gone through shoulder surgery in the fall and looked good in a string of rehab starts in the minors. In his recent stretch at the farm, he carried a 1.53 ERA, walking five in 17 innings while striking out 28. Not bad for a guy who had some work under the hood.

In this, his MLB comeback debut, he struck out seven and scattered six hits, walking two. A solid outing for six innings, but he made two mistakes that cost him. He gave up a solo homer to Jackie Bradley in the second, which tied the game 2-2, and gave up a two-run homer to J.D. Martinez in the fifth that made the score 4-2.

Our Sox scored their two runs in the first, after Tim Anderson's leadoff single and Jose Rondon's walk against David Price were followed by Jose Abreu's RBI double and Kevan Smith's RBI groundout. Looking good, gentlemen! But alas, that was all there was. The Bridgeport Bafflers went down quietly in the remaining eight innings.

Only two of the beantown runs were earned, thanks to errors by Anderson and Yoan Moncada in the first and by Abreu in the fifth. Join that to the poor run production and you get what we got. Ricky's boys may not quit, but they don't hit. And they don't catch and throw so good, either.

Welcome back nonetheless, Carlos. It's good to know there's a solid guy in the rotation. Stick around for 2020 -- it'll get better.

Maybe Ricky should go shopping for bigger gloves.

Kevan Smith

Did what he could. Went 2-for-4, but he's one guy out of nine.
