Trouble with the Tribe

June 11 vs. Cleveland


WSI Playdate Funtime:

The Sox are on their own, and even that doesn't guarantee a win.

Short Take: Cleveland solves Lucas Giolito; Sox are dominated by Carlos Carrasco.

Monday began as a pleasant time to be a White Sox fan of late. The boys had just taken two of three from the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park and were 6-4 in their past 10 games. By the end of the evening, the Cleveland Indians had knocked reality back into everyone. That's because they defeated the Pale Hose, 4-0, at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Initially, the game had the looks of a pitcher's duel as Lucas Giolito and Carlos Carrasco traded zeros for the first three innings. Little did anyone know that the second inning would provide the only Sox hits of the night: singles by Kevan Smith and Charlie Tilson. Neither they, nor any other baserunner came around to score. That happens when you face a pitcher who strikes out 11 over seven frames.

The Indians got the best of Giolito with two outs in the fourth. It began when Yonder Alonso and Melky Cabrera drew back-to-back walks. It continued with Lonnie Chisenhall's RBI single and ended with a two-RBI double from Yan Gomes. For good measure, Michael Brantley hit a solo home run in the fifth that curled around the right-field foul pole.

Even before he was tagged, Giolito showed signs of the wildness Sox fans have come to expect from him. Pretty soon, his pitches got higher and higher until he almost looked like he was aiming for the backstop. Xavier Cedeno, Luis Avilan, Bruce Rondon and Hector Santiago shut out the Tribe over the final four innings, making everyone wonder what would have happened if Giolito had better command. Actually, the Sox probably would have lost anyway since their offense did nothing.

It was reasonable to assume the recent mini surge would end at some point because the 2018 Sox simply aren't talented. It's too bad that meant more badness from Giolito and a return to an offense that can't hit its way out of a paper bag. Prepare for more of this because we're still a few weeks from the midway point of the season. The farm system can't develop fast enough.

The Sox and Indians meet again Tuesday at 7:10. James Shields will be on the hill against Adam Plutko. Shields has looked like, well, Shields recently, so that's not exactly an encouraging sign. But the Sox have had some surprises lately, and who says another one is impossible?
