Sox Fall Short...

June 26 at Detroit


Sox Project Update:
Things were looking good until...
The late crew knocked off early.

Short Take:  Sox lack of hitting was offset by good power numbers, but the pitching struggled early and often.

Tonight's game started off well as the eventual Pick To Click winner homered to give the Sox the 1-0 lead right off the bat. After that one can forgive fans if they thought they were watching a game of leapfrog. The score ended up flipping back and forth. The normally more dependable pitching staff really didn't have it's best stuff and a couple of late inning solo shots gave the Tigers a lead they would not relinquish. The Sox go on to lose 5-4.

The Sox offense only managed 8 hits tonight but with 3 homers, a triple and a pair of doubles at least there was good run production. Eaton, Abreu and even Flowers all managed to put the ball in the seats and all three of those homers gave the Sox the lead. The final one coming in the top of the 7th off of Tyler Flowers bat a long pop-up down the right field line that managed to sneak over the wall and inside the foul pole. Unfortunately that was the last run of the night.

Meanwhile the Sox pitching was not having a good night. Jose Quintana gave up 11 hits in his 6 innings of work but managed to hold the Tigers to 3 runs and leave with the game tied. After Flowers gave the Sox the lead Jake Petricka and Zach Duke both gave up solo shots in the 7th and 8th innings respectively to give back the lead.

In the ninth Avisail Garcia led off with a double. After Beckham struck out JB Shuck pinch hitting for Flowers (I swear this must be some internal organizational memo to pinch hit for players who have hit a home run to give the Sox the lead in their very next at bat, but I digress...) singled weakly to left which only allowed Garcia to get to third. Carlos Sanchez then attempted a safety squeeze but popped the ball up foul and was retired. Unfortunately Eaton could not bookend his first inning magic and bounced out harmlessly to short to end the Sox hopes and the game.

So that's the story of "missed it by ' ' that much". Not sure the Sox deserved to win this game, but they still came close. Unfortunately we're talking about baseball not horse shoes so close doesn't count. Sox still have a solid chance at a split or even a series win but that will require more timely hitting and definitely better pitching. Next game is tomorrow at 3:08 in Chicago.

 There may be some design flaws that will cause the project to crash and burn.
