Comeback!

May 6 vs. Detroit


Sox Project Update:

Short Take:   The White Sox stun Joba Chamberlain in the eighth to steal one from the Tigers.

Consider any success the White Sox have against the Detroit Tigers extra special. The way Detroit has dominated the division in this decade helps that argument. And one of the best types of success came Wednesday when a likely defeat turned into a 7-6 win.

The teams battled through the first four innings, much to the chagrin of Chris Sale and Alfredo Simon. A Victor Martinez sacrifice fly in the first preceded a Conor Gillaspie homer in the second. Martinez hit a two-run blast in the top of the third before Jose Abreu scored on a wild pitch during the bottom half. The game was tied again the fourth with a sac fly from Melky Cabrera.

Sale blinked in the fifth, allowing the first three hitters to reach base while giving up an RBI single to Miguel Cabrera. He was lifted in the sixth after loading the bases. While Jake Petricka gave him a bit of a break by allowing just one of those runners to score, he and all Sox fans are left to wonder where that dominant Sale we’ve come to know has gone. If anyone out there has kidnapped him, please return him immediately.

Petricka got through the seventh unscathed and turned in over to Zach Putnam for the eighth. After hitting Jose Iglesias to start the inning and walking Ian Kinsler with one out, Miggy threatened to blow the game open. Putnam struck him out, but Martinez scored Iglesias with a single right after. Inheriting a 6-3 lead, Joba Chamberlain came in to pitch for the Tigers and got the first two hitters, seemingly resigning the Sox faithful to the fact that another defeat was near.

Suddenly, the Sox had a surprise for Chamberlain. Micah Johnson and Adam Eaton hit back-to-back singles. Melky, still looking for his first Sox homer, hit one of the line drive variety to tie the score at 6. Sale was off the hook and the momentum was now in the Pale Hose’s favor.

Not content to get out of the inning tied, Jose Abreu and Adam LaRoche hit their own pair of singles, hoping Avisail Garcia would create some magic. Garcia, who’s having a nice year to this point, did just that with his own single and Abreu came home with the winning run. That brought Chamberlain’s night to an end and the Tigers fans in the stands to disbelief.

This wonderful turn of events gave David Robertson a chance to close. He struck out J.D. Martinez first, but then, surrendered singles to Nick Castellanos and James McCann. Fortunately, McCann ran too far off first and was thrown out on a relay. Although the tying run rested 90 feet away, Robertson finished job by getting Iglesias to ground out to second.

True, the Sox have a lot of work to do to get out of this early-season hole. Still, every little bit helps. If the rotation can get its act together and more timely hits such as the ones we just saw come about, anything is possible. Improving that road record would help too, but that part will have to wait after the weekend.

The Sox can pull off a sweep of the Tigers Thursday afternoon at U.S. Cellular Field. Jose Quintana will start getaway day against Kyle Lobstein. Those who don’t have to work can catch the action on WGN beginning at 1:10.
