Creeping Closer. Why Sell?

July 29 at Boston


Sox Project Update:
Titanium walls
The strong portion of the building is finally going up. Better late than never.

Short Take:   The White Sox continue letting the Red Sox know how bad they are by showing more of their newfound goodness.

I know I said the White Sox should sell in my last game recap. Funny how things can change in a week. They haven't lost since I last recapped a game, including Wednesday's 9-2 win over the Boston Red Sox. Make that 7-0 on the road trip and 2 1/2 games back in the Wild Card race.

On the sixth pitch of the game, Adam Eaton took ex-Tiger Rick Porcello deep to Fenway Park's shallow right field for a quick 1-0 lead. Later in the first, Melky Cabrera singled, advanced on Adam LaRoche's single, then suddenly came home when Brock Holt blew a relay catch. Make it 2-0 Pale Hose.

Porcello continued to struggled in the second, giving up a double to Carlos Sanchez and RBI singles to Eaton and Cabrera. A mound visit didn't help as he proceeded to walk Jose Abreu, loading the bases. LaRoche came up and with his reputation, it would have been a perfect time for him to strike out in the clutch yet again. Porcello, too generous to afford LaRoche the opportunity, drilled him instead to score Tyler Saladino and make it 5-0.

Alexei Ramirez led off the third with a homer over the Green Monster. Sanchez's subsequent second double and Tyler Flowers' single didn't score, but those very acts sent Porcello to the dugout after only two-plus innings. The Bronx cheers coming from the Fenway faithful were as loud as they were all night. Back in Chicago, that was music to our ears.

That was more than enough for Jose Quintana, who gave up just two runs in 6 1/3 innings. In his sixth win, he struck out three and walked one. Mike Napoli's homer in the seventh signaled he was near his limit and Rusney Castillo's subsequent double put a stamp on what was a rare good-luck outing for him. Zach Putnam and Daniel Webb kept the Red Sox scoreless for the rest of the game.

Before the pitching finished the job though, some more White Sox offense was on display. In the seventh, Avisail Garcia's single and Ramirez's double scored on Sanchez's groundout and Flowers' single respectively. The eighth provided a Cabrera double and Abreu RBI single. We then got a look at Boston's woes when Alexi Ogando botched the start of a double play and Abreu moved up to third with nobody covering.

Averaging 9.3 runs on 15.3 hits so far this series are cause for excitement. Suddenly, the White Sox offense is complimenting that solid pitching staff and it's leading to a playoff push. Perish any thought this team might have had about rebuilding for the time being. Unless there's an offer they can't refuse for Jeff Samardzija, there's no reason to change what's turning into a good thing.

The White Sox will try to finish the perfect road trip in Thursday's series finale. Chris Sale will get the call against Steven Wright at 6:10. You know who wouldn't want to see this sweep come to pass? Yaz.

 This project suddenly looks stronger than it's been all year. Keep it up and the rewards will be plentiful.
