Shut Out and Swept

September 7 at Cleveland Indians


Daily Sox Crop Report:
There must have been a hint of a first frost, because the crops are cringing in anticipation

Short Take: Sox only muster 3 hits off Indians starter Carlos Carrasco; bats snooze through 2-0 loss to Cleveland.

Hellloooo??? Anybody there???? Echo...echo...echo...

I'm pretty sure there were about 14 fans watching the White Sox take on the Cleveland Indians at noon today, as the rest of the Chicago area was watching the Bears game. That's okay, though - because if you saw yesterday's game, you pretty much saw today's game - except with even less Sox offense.

There's no doubt that Indians Carlos Carrasco pitched a great game. He was removed with 2 outs in the 9th inning, having given up only 4 scattered hits, no walks and striking out 8.

But this game pretty much was a carbon copy of the 2014 Sox game formula:

(Sox starter has decent start - but it's not a shutout)
+ (Sox offense snores through most of game)
+ (Sox bullpen gives up a couple more runs)
= Another loss

Sox starter Scott Carroll had a solid start. He pitched 7 innings and gave up one run in the 1st inning on a lead-off triple by Michael Bourn, followed by a 1-out single by Michael Brantley. The only other run charged to Carroll came in the 8th inning when he wasn't on the mound (of course…the beleaguered bullpen!). By the time he departed in the 8th inning, Carroll gave up 7 scattered hits, walked 1 and struck out 1.

But Sox hitters could not figure out Carlos Carrasco. For the first 4 innings, only a Conor Gillapsie double marred Carrasco's line, but Gillapsie was left stranded on 3rd. In the 5th inning, Sox 1st baseman Andy Wilkins got his first major league hit--a double down the right field line. Unfortunately, he was also left stranded, as Dayan Viciedo and Jordan Danks both struck out.

The Indians scored again in the 8th inning on a fluke foul/fair ball. With bases loaded and Eric Surkamp on the mound, Carlos Santana hit a soft chopper down the 1st base line that started out about a foot foul, but then spun back into fair territory and hit the bag. A surprised Wilkins missed the ball, and the run scored (although Carlos Sanchez was backing up the play and got the runner at 1st).

Carrasco nearly pitched a complete game, giving up only 3 hits, walking none and striking out 7 Sox hitters. Despite giving up a leadoff single in the 9th to Adrian Nieto, Carrasco knuckled down, got Adam Eaton to ground out and struck out Carlos Sanchez. But when Jose Abreu singled, Terry Francona brought in reliever Cody Allen to face Conor Gillapsie, who flew out to center field to end the game.

Lather, rinse, repeat...Game, set, and match to Cleveland. It must be nice to still have something to play for.

Sox head home to face Adam Dunn and the Oakland As on Monday. It's Bark at the Park night and free Paul Konerko t-shirt night. If you don't go to the game, you (and the other 12 or 13 of us still watching the Sox) can see the game at 7 pm CST on CSN.

WSI's
The Futures Market:
 The future is certainly not in 2014, but congrats to Andy Wilkins on his first major league hit.
