More Bad Luck Thanks to More Bad Offense

September 30 vs. Kansas City

Sox Project Update:
Plentiful supplies in poor quality
Time to trade these tools for some that might be useful.

Short Take:   The White Sox earned just three runs on 13 hits while the Royals need just seven to score five. Naturally, Jose Quintana is in the middle of it.

Two of the biggest storylines of this White Sox season were on display Wednesday against the Kansas City Royals. Jose Quintana had his typical hard luck and the offense couldn't do enough with the opportunities given. I was there, sitting several rows behind the Sox dugout. As such, I could only watch in disgust as the Sox lost 5-3 in 10 innings.

The first inning proved to be a sign of things to come. With two outs, Edinson Volquez served up three straight singles to Melky Cabrera, Trayce Thompson and Alexei Ramirez. But that only left the bases loaded with a donut still on the scoreboard. That donut remained when Avisail Garcia could only fly out to center.

The second went a little better when three straight singles from Mike Olt, Tyler Flowers and Adam Eaton actually produced a run. The euphoria for it ended at the start of the third when Alex Gordon worked the count full against Quintana and took him deep. Three innings and three stranded Sox runners later, the Royals made this inaction hurt again. With two outs, Kendrys Morales walked after being down 0-2 and Mike Moustakas went yard on the first pitch.

We felt the Sox would go quietly as they typically do, but Jose Abreu cut the Royals' lead in half with a solo shot in the seventh. Another two-out rally started in the eighth with an Olt single. Tyler Saladino pinch-ran, taking two extra bases on a stolen bases and throwing error by Salvador Perez. Saladino came home on a Flowers ground-rule double, which Orlando misplayed, to tie the game.

The Sox had a couple chances to win it, missing on both. After Flowers' double, Eaton walked, but Jose Abreu grounded out on the first pitch. Quintana completed a perfect ninth, earning a nice ovation from the crowd as he exited. Thompson singled with one out to give Quintana a shot at the victory, but Ramirez hit into a double play, sending the game to the 10th.

David Roberton's mere entrance to start extras meant another maddening no-decision for Quintana. Ben Zobrist singled and two batters later, Eric Hosmer hit it to the seats for a two-run homer, stamping the final insult. Wade Davis retired the Sox in short order in the bottom half and that was that.

Jose Quintana may be the closest thing we've had to a Greek tragedy on the South Side in years. On a team where offense either doesn't come or is station-to-station, it's difficult to imagine anyone would get enough run support to get a win. Yet somehow, Quintana is the one starting pitcher who can never fully enjoy the fruits of his labors. Maybe next year, the Sox will have some hitters and relievers who can give him, and us, more Ws.

Thursday marks the final meeting of the year between these teams. Who better to give the Royals a send-off to this year's meetings than John Danks? That 10-2 record with a 2.57 ERA will be at stake against Kris Medlen. The action starts at 7:10.

Rebuilding Recap:
 An overhaul can't come soon enough. No more funding until the project heads show they're serious about progress.
