Deep Sixed!

September 23rd at Cleveland


Toon Squad Update:
Rorschach
The Sox aren't stuck in here with us, we're stuck in here with them.

Short Take: Indians storm back in the middle innings to crush the Sox and end their thin as fog playoff chances.

It was a dark and stormy night... not really, it just kind of felt that way. The Sox were playing in Cleveland and we all know how well that's turned out this year. The Sox were clinging to their ever dwindling playoff hopes, needing to win out while everyone above them lost the rest of the way. All that stood in their way was the Cleveland Indians, a team the Sox had defeated six times compared to ten losses. The Sox even managed to win two series including the last 4-game set in Chicago a little over a week ago. Unfortunately that was the bright spot of the season against our ALC rivals. This year's highlights include being swept at home in May, at one point losing seven in a row, and notching one meager win, total, in Cleveland proper. Last night things were no different as the Sox jumped out to an early lead only to watch Cleveland put up ten runs over three innings right smack dab in the middle of the game. That explosion ended all doubt and sent the Sox to their sixth straight loss - 10-4, ending those playoff chances and leaving the fans shaking their heads as they watch their boyz of summer tank their way to the end of another lost season.

Not a lot to recap here. The Sox managed to put up four total runs all of them coming on 2-run bombs in the first and fifth innings. Both blasts gave the Sox a 2-run lead, but that was it offensively. There were a grand total of five other hits and a couple of walks, but once again the offense was ineffective. Not that it really mattered. Sox pitching had an off night against the powerful Cleveland offense yielding ten runs, eight of them earned on thirteen hits and three walks.

Miguel Gonzalez started the game and looked solid for the first three innings. He then broke down and yielded a pair of runs in the 4th on a 2-run bomb by Jose Ramirez that tied the game. After Avisail Garcia gave the Sox back the lead in the 5th on a 2-run blast of his own, the Tribe came storming back in the bottom half of the inning. A double, HBP, WP, SF, single sequence tied the game and sent Miguel to the shower. Juan Minaya came on and was mostly okay but an error by Todd Frazier extended the inning and led to two unearned runs that gave Cleveland a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Minaya left with one out in the 6th and Dan Jennings came on and he brought his gas can with him. When the dust had cleared the Toons had a 10-4 lead and yours truly turned the game off. Not that I missed much, no more runs were scored, heck even Jacob Turner managed to throw a scoreless 8th inning - maybe the Indians were just tired from running around the basepaths so much, who knows?

So that's all they wrote for the 2016 season, Sox fans. There's another week+ of games but nothing to play for. I suppose we can hope the current losing streak will eventually end, but that might not happen until Monday as there are two more games yet to play in Cleveland. Game two of this set will occur on Saturday with a start time of 6:10 PM in Chicago. Cleveland's magic number sits at three, so expect them to be bringing everything they have. Can the Sox deny Cleveland the right to celebrate at home at our expense? If you want to watch, Jose Quintana takes the mound for the Sox looking to bounce back from his last poor start and recent struggles. Not sure this is the best place to do that, but stranger things have happened.

 Wait 'til next year, Sox fans...
