Sweet Royals Sweep

April 26 vs. Kansas City Royals


Sox Office Smash Hit:
The Lego Movie
Everything is awesome when you're rebuilding, and you're winning!

Short Take:   Dos Garcias hit dingers while Quintana ignores his historically bad record against the Royals; Sox win 5-2 and sweep series from KC.

I just knew it...this Sox team is trying to make me care. They're going to suck me in, play hard, pitch well, and win more than they lose. Later, they will break my heart. (Said in Randy Quaid's voice from "Major League".)

Oh, well, if that's how it goes - so be it. I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts, starting with today's win over divisional rivals Kansas City 5-2, resulting in a three-game sweep. Sweet!

Jose Quintana finally got his first win of 2017. For the first 3 innings, he looked like the Q we remember from the last few seasons, striking out 7 and making the Royals look like Little Leaguers.

And the Sox continued the previously unheard-of practice (at least on the South Side) of scoring early, rustling up two runs in the 1st inning. Tyler Saladino singled and stole 3rd, and Jose Abreu and Todd Frazier followed up with back-to-back doubles to put the Sox ahead 2-0.

Quintana was a bit less effective in innings 3 through 5, and the Royals capitalized on an error by (and concurrent injury to) Jose Abreu. After Alcides Escobar singled, Cheslor Cuthbert hit an infield grounder that made Abreu pull a hip flexor trying to field it. It's not a pretty sight watching a large man attempt to do the splits. Abreu was removed from the game and Todd Frazier replaced him at 1st base. Jorge Bonifacio then singled, allowing Escobar to score and making it a 2-1 game.

Q tired in the 6th, and nearly blew his chance for a win. After allowing a single to Gordon and walking Merrifield, Quintana threw a wild pitch that allowed both runners to advance. Cuthbert (again) grounded out to short, allowing Merrifield to score and tie the game.

Fortunately for Quintana, though, the Sox found some more ways to score in the bottom of the frame. Melky Cabrera singled, and Yolmer Sanchez advanced him with an unintentional sacrifice grounder. After Todd Frazier grounded out, Avisail Garcia hit a 437-foot bomb to center field to break the tie, and put Quintana in line for the win.

Not to be outdone, Leury Garcia (who was 7 for 11 in this series with 2 RBIs) padded the lead by depositing one into the RF bullpen to make it 5-2 Sox. And the Sox bullpen of Dan Jennings, Tommy Kahnle, Nate Jones, and Dave Robertson held down the fort for the win.

A day off tomorrow, and then Sox go to Detroit on Friday; Mike Pelfrey vs. Matthew Boyd at 6:10 CST.
