Thrown Away

September 10 at Kansas City


WSI Playdate Funtime:
Sorry!
Lucas deserves apologies for how this one turned out.

Short Take: Lucas Giolito puts the White Sox in position to win, but the offense does little, and poor execution at the end makes Kansas City victorious.

To say the least, this has been the most trying time of the season. Not only have the White Sox not won in a week, but during that span, we've learned that Michael Kopech likely needs Tommy John surgery, which would cost him all of 2019. In a season when top prospects have dropped like flies, that was the biggest gut punch of all. It almost numbs the pain of Monday's 4-3 road loss in 10 innings to the Kansas City Royals.

Despite all the recent pain, baseball stops for no one, which Lucas Giolito was reminded of when Whit Merrifield hit his first pitch for a home run. The Royals scraped together another run in the second inning. Already trailing, 2-0, Giolito appeared destined for a short outing. Fortunately, that was the only damage he allowed for awhile.

The offense came to life in the third when Adam Engel greeted Jakob Junis with a leadoff homer to cut the deficit in half. Two outs later, Jose Abreu, back from the disabled list, came up with a single to short. That set up Daniel Palka's two-run blast inside the right-field foul pole to give the Sox a 3-2 lead. Just like that, things were looking up.

That third inning was the only time the Sox scored as Junis settled down and ended up throwing eight innings with no walks. Giolito came close by lasting seven innings, but along the way, he gave up a solo shot to rookie Ryan O'Hearn that tied the game. It stayed tied until the 10th, when Jeanmar Gomez became charitable to the Royals. After giving up a lead-off double to Brian Goodwin, he fielded a bunt from Alcides Escobar and threw to third to get Goodwin, but the throw was wide, and Goodwin breezed home to give the Royals a walk-off win.

It's amazing how baseball makes you go through hot and cold spells. Only last week, the Sox were playing their best ball of the season. Now, they're right back to what they've been most of the year: a young team severely lacking in talent and shaky in fundamentals. With the September call-ups sure to get more playing time soon, don't expect anything drastic to change over these final few weeks, not that it matters, anyway.

Instead of looking forward to another start from Kopech, we get welcome Dylan Covey back to the rotation Tuesday. He'll be opposed by Brad Keller starting at 7:15. Is anyone honestly looking forward to this? Didn't think so.

 Somehow, this team could still lose 106. Let's now allow that to happen, shall we?
