Singling Out a Win

May 17 at Los Angeles


Today's Sox Crew:

After picking up 13 hits and seven walks, the Sox were able to see the ball well.

Short Take:   Sox avoid the sweep behind 12 singles

The White Sox concluded this brief two-game roadtrip by avoiding the sweep. Behind good offense and a good start by Chris Sale, the Sox picked up a win by beating the Angels 6-1.

Sale picked up his fourth win of the season in a very good start. He pitched 5.1 innings, giving up one run, which was an Albert Pujols home run. Sale also only gave up five hits and a walk while striking out seven in those 5.1 innings. Nate Jones came on for 1.2 innings, and he pitched well, giving up only a walk and striking out two. Matt Thornton pitched the eighth, giving up one hit, and Jesse Crain pitched the ninth, giving up just a walk.

The offense did well in backing Sale's start. AJ Pierzynski had himself a day, going 3-for-5 with two RBI. Alexei Ramirez also had a good day, going 2-for-5, as did Adam Dunn who also picked up two RBI. Paul Konerko had a great day as well, going 2-for-3 with an RBI, a run scored, and two walks.

Alejandro De Aza went 0-for-1, but he walked three times, and Brent Morel went 1-for-2 with two walks. The Sox were pretty good at getting on base this afternoon. The last RBI was Dayan Viciedo's solo home run in the eighth, his sixth of the year. The Sox could have scored two more runs in the eighth. After Viciedo's home run, Morel singled to left. He moved to second on a sac bunt by De Aza, and Gordon Beckham came up to bat. On a 1-1 count, Vernon Wells robbed Beckham of a two-run homer.

The Sox come back to Chicago and visit Wrigley Field for their first interleague series of the season. Philip Humber takes the mound tomorrow afternoon and faces Jeff Samardzija. Humber is looking for his second win of the season and hopefully he'll lower that 5.77 ERA. He's made one career start at Wrigley, which was a 1-0 win last July.

 I appreciate that we didn't get swept on this ridiculous two-game road trip across the freaking country.
