Daily Sox Crop Report:
Late season wilt
Otherwise successful homestand closes on a losing note... What can you do?

Short Take: Jose Abreu hits 35th home run of season to tie Sox rookie record in an otherwise forgettable loss to Twins

Jose Abreu hit a 9th inning homer off Twins closer Glen Perkins to equal the White Sox rookie record of 35 but there was little else for the home fans to cheer for on a cool, sunny Sunday in Chicago. The Twins jumped on Hector Noesi early and hung on later as the Sox’s 4-game winning streak was snapped at 4 in a 6-4 defeat.

Noesi, who has been a pleasant surprise for most of this season, simply didn’t have his stuff today, allowing 2 runs in the 2nd inning and another 2 in the 4th and, in a most frustrating fashion, 3 of the 4 scored with 2 outs. Meanwhile, he was opposed by 24-year-old rookie Trevor May, who entered the contest on a personal 2-game win streak, but still with an overall record of 2-4 and ERA north of 8. Naturally, he pitched easily the best game of his career, holding the Sox to 3 runs on 5 hits over 6 innings while striking out 10. He set down the first 9 batters he faced, 5 via strikeout, and held a 4-0 advantage by the time the Sox even put a runner on first base.

That was the kind of day it was for the Pale Hose. After sweeping yesterday’s double header in dramatic fashion, they looked flat and tired. Yes, to their credit, they clawed back and kept things interesting; a 4th inning rally looked to have real legs when the Sox 1-4 hitters; Adam Eaton, Alexei Ramirez, Jose Abreu, and Conor Gillaspie rattled May for 4 consecutive hits and 2 runs, but he then set down Avisail Garcia, Andy Wilkins, and Dayan Viciedo via strikeouts to end the frame. An Adrian Nieto homer and Abreu’s homer in the 9th capped the scoring for the Sox.

After Noesi, the bullpen was its usual self; Ronald Belisario allowed an inherited run to score in the 7th inning, Maikel Cleto had a nice outing, and Matt Lindstrom had a rough go of things in the 9th, allowing a critical insurance run to score on 3 hits.

The loss caps an otherwise successful 5-2 homestand and they’ll take the show on the road to Kansas City for a 3-game series that kicks off Monday night as John Danks will battle James Shields.

The Futures Market:
Story of the season, Abreu keeps rewriting White Sox history while the team stays decidedly below average.
