WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Yoan and the Long Ballers Save Lucas’ Tuches

July 3 vs Cincinnati Reds

WSI Playdate Funtime:
Back and forth, back and forth, but the Sox come out on the good end.

Short Take: Lucas Giolito coughs up 4 runs in the 1st without an out, but despite the doom and gloom, the Sox claw their way back to win 12-8 in 12 innings

If you lost interest in this game after Lucas Giolito gave the Reds a 4-0 lead in the first inning without getting an out, and/or fell asleep during extra innings (cough-ChiSoxGal85-cough), you got to wake up to a treat this morning: The Sox pulled one out of their hats last night and beat the Reds 12-8 in 12 innings.

Giolito looked tentative and entirely hittable right from the start, giving up homers to Scooter Gennett and Eugenio Suarez, as well as a triple and double without getting any outs in the 1st. A mound visit later, he induced a couple of grounders and a strikeout to finish the inning behind 4-0.

But the Cincinnati stadium was hot and heavy with homers last night, and the Sox made a dent into that lead in the 4th. Avisail Garcia singled and Daniel Palka homered to make it 4-2 Reds.

The Reds extended the lead when Adam Duvall homered with 2 on in the 5th. Not to be outdone, the Sox fought back with back-to-back homers from Avi Garcia and Daniel Palka (yes, his second long ball of the game) in the 6th. A follow-up single by Kevan Smith chased Reds starter Anthony DeSclanafi from the game. Still the Sox inched closer, when Tim Anderson singled, Matt Davidson doubled to score Smith, and then Adam Engel ground out to score Davidson on a fielder’s choice, The 5th inning ended with the Sox down only a run with a 7-6 score.

Despite not being a total wreck after the 1st inning, Giolito was still in line for the loss when Xavier Cedeno and Bruce Rondon took over and threw scoreless 6th and 7th innings.

The Sox tied the game in the 8th with a Leury Garcia RBI single, then coughed it right back up in the bottom of the 8th. Jace Fry was not paying attention to Billy Hamilton at 2nd, allowing him to steal 3rd when he was easily picked off. Then Scooter Gennett grounded out to shortstop Tim Anderson, who looked the speedy Hamilton back at 3rd almost too long. He threw out Gennett at first, and Davidson fired home but Hamilton was safe at the plate. Replay review upheld the call and it was 8-7 Reds.

Not to fret, though - red-hot (hah) Avisail Garcia tied the game in the top of the 9th with his second homer of the evening.

Joakim Soria pitched a scoreless 10th. And Hector Santiago was fantastic, shutting down the Reds in the 11th and 12th with 6 strikeouts!

But the game winner was provided by Yoan Moncada. In the 12th, Anderson reached on an error, Matt Davidson walked, and Adam Engel reached base on a sac bunt and throwing error. Moncada then tripled to the right field corner, and it was 11-8 Sox. Moncada has been struggling at the plate for a while so it was good to see him get to be the hero. Then Yolmer Sanchez followed Moncada’s triple with another long one that actually would have been caught on the fence by right fielder Brandon Dixon, but Dixon’s glove came off, and it and the ball tumbled onto the right field grass. However, Moncada scored, and it was 12-8 Sox.

Santiago made the Reds look silly in the bottom of the 12th inning for a White Sox winner. Those are few and far between these days so let’s enjoy it!

The Sox play the Reds again tonight at 6:10 pm CST; Dylan Covey vs. Sal Romano in the battle of the 4.8+ ERAs.

Fun Da Mentalz:
 Yes. Yes that is fun!
