And That's Called a Winning Streak

April 14 at Cleveland Indians


Sox Project Update:
Framework solidifying
The construction manager reports that despite a delayed start, the rebuilding appears to be making up time in the schedule. The bullpen framework looks solidly in place. Just watch out for those workplace injuries.

Short Take:  Sox beat Indians 4-1 for 3rd straight win; scary moment for Indians starter Carlos Carrasco when he takes a line drive to the face

The White Sox opened the series in Cleveland with a 4-1 win over the Indians and their – gasp – 3rd win in a row. Yep, we're almost to .500. Hang in there, Sox fans.

The game had barely begun when Melky Cabrera drove a line shot directly into Indians starter Carlos Carrasco's face. Carrasco went down hard, and eventually was carted off the field holding the side of his face in his hand. It was later reported that he "only" had a jaw contusion, and X-rays and concussion test were negative. Good news for such a frightening sight.

Carrasco was replaced by Zach McAllister. In that 1st inning, the Sox scraped up 2 runs on RBIs from Adam LaRoche and Avisail Garcia. The Sox never faltered after that. Tyler Flowers drove in Garcia in the 4th, and in the 5th, Jose Abreu upped the score with a towering solo homer onto the left field concourse.

This win was in spite of the fact that this was not one of Sox starter Jose Quintana's better outings. For the first 4 innings, Quintana threw 85 pitches, falling consistently behind batters and missing his spots, sometimes by a country mile. Despite Quintana's struggles, the Indians could not muster much offense, and scored only 1 run in the 4th on a Ryan Raburn double.

The 5th and 6th innings were much more like the Q we know - efficient and quick. At 104 pitches, he exited with a 4-1 lead, and turned it over to the bullpen.

Rick Hahn worked hard to improve the Sox bullpen in the off season, and oh, what a relief it is! Dan Jennings and Zach Duke combined for 5 strikeouts in the 7th and 8th innings. Then Dave Roberston closed out the game by striking out the side, fooling Indians batters with wicked curve balls and precise location. What else could you ask for? After last season's bullpen disasters, this sequence of relief pitchers is a pleasure to watch.

If I have any complaints about this game, it's the baserunning gaffs - like Adam Eaton trying to stretch a double into a triple and making the 3rd out, or LaRoche on 2nd and on a grounder to short, running in to an out at 3rd. It's apparent that whatever lessons Vince Coleman was teaching aren't sticking, yet.

The Sox play the Indians again tomorrow at 11:10 am on CSN. John Danks will face Trevor Bauer.

Rebuilding Recap:
 That deep basement that the Sox dug and poured during week 1 has been setting up quite nicely and should make a nice solid, foundation…we hope.
