Axelrod Shaky, Offense Non-Existent

May 6 at Detroit Tigers


Today's Sox Crew:
Stink Bombed
The offense didn't come through in the clutch, hence the stink bomb.

Short Take:   Dylan Axelrod's 4 1/3 IP were shaky at best and other than an Adam Dunn home run, the Sox offense was anemic.

If anyone would have told me that Adam Dunn would have been as close to his 2011 season total in home runs (11) as he presently is, I wouldn't have believed him. With a home run total of eight coming into Sunday's contest, Dunn padded that total with one more at Comerica Park in Detroit on Sunday afternoon. Despite that, his White Sox fell to the Detroit Tigers 3-1.

Typically, Rick Porcello (3-2) struggles against the White Sox offense, as he had a 3-4 lifetime record against the South Siders coming in to Sunday's contest. However, he baffled Paul Konerko & Co., stymying the Sox bats and limiting them to four hits in his 6 1/3 innings pitched.

Making his first start for the Sox in 2012, Dylan Axelrod (0-1) temporarily replaced Chris Sale in the rotation. Sale, who has found himself battling a slight injury, will be moved to the bullpen, freeing up a spot in the rotation. Axelrod wasn't sharp in his season debut, surrendering two earned runs on six hits in just 4 1/3 innings pitched. Axelrod's lack of control hurt no one more than those in the Sox bullpen, as a day-night doubleheader awaits. As for Detroit's scoring off Axelrod, that was left up to Austin Jackson and Prince Fielder, both of whom hit solo shots, putting the Tigers up 2-1.

If Hector Santiago tries hard enough, he's going to pitch his way right off the Major League roster. When Jesse Crain is activated from the disabled list, a pitcher will need to be sent down and with the way Santiago has been throwing the ball as of late, he better start packing his bags. His ineffectiveness continued Sunday afternoon when he had a shaky outing. While he did limit the damage to just a solo home run off the bat of Andy Dirks in the eighth, he had control problems once again. Dirks's late-inning home run produced the final score of 3-1.

While the Sox have played well against the dangerous-hitting Tigers, they dropped two of three in the weekend's series. From the Motor City, the Sox now head to Cleveland, where they'll play four games in three days, beginning with a day-night doubleheader on Monday. Pitching the first game for the Sox will be Philip Humber (1-1, 4.62 ERA) and he'll oppose Cleveland's Josh Tomlin (1-2, 5.27 ERA). The first pitch will be thrown at 12:05p CDT and the game will be broadcast on WGN. The nightcap will feature Eric Stults (0-0, 0.00 ERA), making his season debut for the Sox, and Zach McAllister (0-1, 6.11 ERA) for the Indians. The first pitch of the nightcap will be thrown at 6:05p CDT and the game will be broadcast on Comcast Sports Net.

KW Appreciates The Game:
 Sale's been moved to the bullpen. Axelrod wasn't good. The offense only managed one run against Tiger pitching. Ugh!
