Busting Out in Boston

June 22 at Boston


Toon Squad Update:
The Powerpuff Girls
Cabrera is Blossom, Lawrie is Bubbles and Frazier is Buttercup. Together, all three will pound you if you do our Sox wrong.

Short Take:   The White Sox break out their bats to win their third straight against the Red Sox.

Following the White Sox sweep at the hands of Cleveland, there was little reason to be optimistic about the following road series with the Boston Red Sox. They surprised everyone by taking the first two at Fenway Park. Could they ensure a series victory by winning Wednesday? Following some late craziness, the answer was a happy yes by way of an 8-6 final.

The White Sox took a couple of early runs against Eduardo Rodriguez. Adam Eaton's walk in the first scored on an RBI double by Melky Cabrera in the first. Jason Coats got his first Major League hit in the third and came home when Travis Shaw made a two-out error. The way Jose Quintana has been pitching, you'd think that would have been enough support for him. But surprisingly, he was off his game this time.

Quintana gave up a leadoff walk in the bottom of the third and then, allowed singles to five of the next six Red Sox hitters, meaning a 4-2 Boston lead. Todd Frazier picked his pitcher up in the top of the sixth by hitting a two-homer to tie it up. But Quintana gave it right back in the bottom half by throwing a leadoff homer to Hanley Ramirez. After allowing his career-high sixth walk that inning, he left for the dugout, where he saw that run come around and the score became 6-4 Boston.

The eighth inning, known as the "Sweet Caroline" inning at Fenway, was when things got very interesting. Eaton led off with a single, which allowed Cabrera to tie the game on his home run two hitters later. Another two hitters passed before Brett Lawrie launched the second pitch he saw over the Green Monster and out of the ballpark for a 7-6 Pale Hose lead. But all that was merely a setup to the crazy bottom half that would transpire.

Michael Ynoa, in relief of Dan Jennings, retired Mookie Betts and Dustin Pedroia in short order. The next hitter, Xander Bogaerts, just missed clearing the Monster, but a fan reached over as the ball was descending. The umpires checked with the replay center in New York to make sure it wasn't actually a home run. Fortunately, it wasn't and the offending fan was promptly escorted from the premises.

David Ortiz was up next and even though he represented the go-ahead run, Ynoa wanted no part of the retiring slugger and opted to intentionally walk him with first base open. It paid off when Chris Young struck out, but before that, he hit a foul ball that just barely missed the Fisk Foul Pole in left field. In the top of the ninth, Cabrera added some insurance with an RBI single. Zach Duke, in for the save, gave up a leadoff single to Jackie Bradley Jr., but shut the next three hitters down to put a bow on this beauty.

The win brought the White Sox back to .500 at 36-36. They're not giving up on this season and don't want us to either. The pitching has been solid and for one night at least, the offense came alive. If both can happen at the same time consistently, they'll resemble the team that started 23-10, which can only mean good things going forward.

It would be nice to see a four-game sweep, but James Shields is pitching the finale Thursday afternoon. Boston will send out Rick Porcello, who's 6-0 at home this season. It's not the most promising situation, but the White Sox will have to try and conquer it anyway. The first pitch is at 12:35.

 So once again, the day is saved thanks to the Pale Hose Guys!
