Quintana and 3 HRs Boost Sox in Seattle

July 19th, 2016 at Seattle Mariners


Toon Squad Update:
Thor
3 HRs swung with the force of mighty Mjolnir!

Short Take:   Sox snap skid behind Quintana and a trio of HRs.

The Sox came into tonight's game looking to get in the win column on this road trip after getting punched in the mouth by Adam Lind in the 9th inning of Game 1. Sox fans were treated to another quality start from Jose Quintana backed by some late arriving offense from Melky and Frazier that put the losing skid in the rear view mirror. The South Siders took out the Mariners 6-1 and evened the series at 1-1. Not to mention, this also saves Sox fans from further emotional distress and trauma.

Just like Game 1 of the series, the White Sox drew first blood on a solo HR. This time it was Brett Lawrie doing the deed in the Top of the 2nd inning off of Mariners starter Wade Miley. It was a hanging breaking ball that Lawrie blasted out to LF on a line drive. Brett had a group of family and friends at this game since he is from the Vancouver area so he acknowledged his buddies as he crossed home plate. Jose Quintana had his good stuff early in this game and kept the Mariners hitters at bay with 4 strikeouts in the first 2 innings. The Mariners would get even in the bottom of the 4th inning on a Robinson Cano solo HR. Quintana left a curveball up at Cano's letters and he deposited it deep into the RF seats. Jose would get in trouble during the 5th and 6th innings as his control wavered slightly but he managed to pitch out of danger each time and keep his team in the game long enough to get a lead. Jose wasn't economical but his final line was 6 innings, 1 ER, 6 hits. Another quality start for our All Star Pitcher under the duress of minimal run support. What new?

Quintana's valor would finally be rewarded with a lead in the Top of the 7th. Melky Cabrera leaned on a Wade Miley offering for a solo HR into LF that was caught by Zach Duke in the Sox bullpen on a fly. Duke pumped his fist in the bullpen celebrating his caught HR and the Sox 2-1 lead. Later in the frame, Todd Frazier singled on a seeing eye grounder to RF and Garcia walked to put 2 runners on with 1 out. J.B. Shuck delivered a well struck single to CF that plated Frazier making it 3-1 Sox. Garcia unfortunatley made an out on the bases that kind've stifled the rally at 2 runs. The way the offense has been lately, getting 2 felt like an explosion of runs.

The top of the 9th inning featured a welcome sight. The Pale Hose accomplished actual certified insurance runs to put an opponent down! No save opportunities were needed here because Todd Frazier flexed some of that "easy power" for a 2 run jack to LF making it 5-1. J.B. Shuck followed that with an infield single and Dioner Navarro finally broke his slump with an opposite field RBI double to the RF corner making it 6-1. All the damage came off of M's relief pitcher Joaquin Benoit. Nate Jones and Carson Fulmer shut the door in the bottom of 9th and the Sox FINALLY got in the win column on this road trip.

This was obviously a much needed win for the reeling White Sox who are desperately trying to stay in the wild card race. It was also nice to see Quintana get rewarded with a win considering he was the only thing keeping the Sox in the game for the first 6 innings while the team struggled to solve Wade Miley. The Sox remain a team reliant on HRs to score which is fine as long as they are blasting them out like they were tonight. It also helps when people are on base to drive in and the Sox took 5 walks tonight which was almost as welcome a sight as the HRs. I'll take late arriving offense over none at all. The Sox will go for the series win tomorrow as Miguel Gonzalez takes on King Felix in the rubber match.

Game Notes-

-Todd Frazier's HR was his team leading 27th of the season.

-Jose Quintana improved to 8W-8L on the year

-Tim Anderson had yet another multi hit game. He was 2 for 5.

-Brett Lawrie hit his 12th HR of the season tonight. He is well on his way to breaking his career high of 16.
