Easy Does It

June 12 vs Cleveland Indians


WSI Playdate Funtime:
40-Piece Puzzles
Lately, all the pieces are fitting together nice and snug.

Short Take: Shields' solid outing and lead off back-to-back homers help Sox coast past Tribe 5-1.

After a (semi-forced) break from watching Sox games in the last few weeks, I was able to resume watching just in time to see the team play well (lucky for me). For example, I enjoyed the Boston series over the weekend. And even the dreaded Sox bullpen has been pretty good lately.

So I was looking forward to tonight’s game report, until I was idly waiting in line at Costco, and started thinking about which Sox starters had pitched this weekend, and realized that James Shields was tonight’s starter. Shields might be teaching the young guys some stuff off the field, but on the field…well, for the most part, I’d rather he stayed off the field, especially against the 1st place AL Central leaders.

But I can’t complain about Shields tonight. His line of 7.0 IP, 4 hits, 1 earned run, no walks, and 2 strikeouts was more than adequate, especially when the Sox tagged Indians starter Adam Plutko for 5 runs in 5 innings.

Back-to-back White Sox homers to lead off the bottom of the 1st inning was especially refreshing, and set the stage for a relatively easy Sox win. To lead off, Yoan Moncada drove one deep to the center field seats. Then Yolmer Sanchez sent the very next pitch to the right center field bleachers. With Jose Abreu up next, I had hopes for a back-to-back-to-backer, but he grounded out. All was not lost, though, because Daniel Palka walked, and Matt Davidson’s double to the right center field fence scored Palka to make it 3-0 Sox.

In the 5th, and eerily similarly, Palka again walked and Davidson again doubled off the wall, driving in his 30th RBI of the season and making it 4-0 Sox. Our boys in black weren’t quite done. when Omar Narvaez doubled to the gap to score Davidson. A 5-0 deficit spelled the end for Plutko, and that was also the end of Sox scoring for the night off of a succession of Indians relievers.

Shields gave up a run in the 6th, and was not overwhelming but effective. Jace Fry pitched a scoreless 8th inning. In the 9th, Nate Jones gave up a double to Jose Ramirez that Adam Engel could not quite track down. A groundout advanced Ramirez to 3rd, and then Jones walked Yonder Alonso. Bye, bye, Nate…Ricky replaced him with Xavier Cedeno, who struck out Jason Kipnis. Jokiam Soria was brought in to face Yan Gomes. With 2 on and 2 outs, we held our breaths when Gomes sent one all the way to the Wintrust sign on the wall in left center, but Adam Engel caught it against the padding.

Nice job by our pitching staff, supported with an errorless defense and enough offense to get the job done.

Tomorrow’s game vs. the Indians starts at 7:10 pm; Dylan Covey vs. Trevor Bauer.
