Short Take:Sox offense blasts six HRs but still not enough against Halos

The Sox closed out a 4 game set with the Halos this afternoon looking to take the series. After victories in the first two and an ugly blowout loss yesterday, they sent Dylan Covey to the bump seeking another stellar outing after blanking the Mariners last weekend. Alas, consistency seems to be elusive for young Dylan as he got rocked pretty hard by the Angels for six earned runs. The Sox offense showed up in a big way today with a whopping six HRs but it still somehow was not quite enough as the good guys fell 12-8.

Jose Abreu got the good guys on the board early in this one with a laser beam solo HR to left field. It is nice to see Pito getting himself back on track in this series and he wasted no time putting the Sox ahead in the top of the 1st. Covey would give the lead right back in the bottom of the 1st allowing a solo blast to Calhoun. Daniel Palka answered with a solo dinger of his own in the Top of the 2nd giving Covey and the Sox their lead back. However, from here on out it was all Angels. After single runs in the 3rd and 4th innings, the Angels would chase Covey out of the game with a bases clearing triple from Simmons that plated 3 more runs making it 6-2. That was all she wrote for Covey. Dylan Covey shows flashes of dominance this year at least and remains intriguing enough to keep running out there every 5th day for now. However, he has entered a very Gavin Floyd-esque territory of alternating ace type outings with awful outings.

There was more offense to be had in this one and the Sox certainly did not go down without a fight. A three solo homer inning from Avi Garcia, Daniel Palka, and Nicky Delmonico cut the Angel lead to 6-5. However, the Angels would pile on the White Sox relief corps. Most of the damage coming against Juan Minaya and Chris Volstad which should shock nobody. I will cut the Sox some slack for giving Minaya another chance because he is relatively young and had some success last year but I seriously am perplexed as to what role Volstad is filling other than providing batting practice for opposing AL hitters. I would rather have Fulmer or Bummer here at the big league level with a chance to improve and learn. The Sox managed to hit yet another HR as Jose Abreu blasted his 16th for a two run shot. By then, it was too little too late as the South Siders fell 12-8 in this one and settled for a split.

The big news today was what happened off the field. The White Sox sent closer Joakim Soria to the Milwaukee Brewers for two intriguing pitching prospects. Fortunately, Soria pitched well enough this year to net the White Sox something interesting in trade. Unfortunately, his departure blows a giant hole in the current bullpen which means the big league club could be even harder to watch in the coming weeks. Ultimately, these are the types of moves a rebuilding club needs to make to further bolster the prospect depth. Losing today was a disappointment but overall, a 3W-4L road trip against some stiff competition is acceptable for this talent deprived roster. The Sox come home tomorrow to face the Blue Jays as Reynaldo Lopez looks to rebound against Marcus Stroman and the Blue Jays.

Game Notes-

-Dylan Covey’s line was 4.2IP, 6ER, 2K, 2BB

-Daniel Palka and Jose Abreu each had 2 HRs today.

-Prior to the game, the Sox finalized a deal to trade Joakim Soria to the Brewers for 2 prospects.

-Moncada finished 0 for 3 with 2BBs.
