Lone Star Sale

June 3 at Texas


Sox Project Update:
Sizzling steel
Cool it down because it came in hot, hot, hot!

Short Take:   Chris Sale, offense shine as Rangers helplessly watch.

One couldn't blame even the most diehard White Sox fan for choosing to watch hockey instead on Wednesday night. After all, the South Siders had just gotten blown out by the Texas Rangers the previous evening. What was really the point of tuning in? Turns out a few may regret missing most, if not all of a 9-2 road victory.

The offensive explosion that came wasn't even necessary because Chris Sale was on from the start. He threw seven shutout innings and fanned 13, a season high which marked his third straight outing of 10 or more strikouts. Eight of the nine Rangers took the slow walk back to the dugout at least once. Three did it three times, including new Rangers golden boy Joey Gallo.

Let's talk about that offensive explosion. It came by way of a six-run second inning off Nick Martinez. It started when Avisail Garcia was hit, then moved to third on singles by Alexei Ramirez and Gordon Beckham. Two batters later, Carlos Sanchez brought Garcia and Ramirez home with his own single.

Adam Eaton doubled to score the two runners on base and before long, scored himself on Jose Abreu's two-run homer. In all, 10 men came to the plate that inning, giving Sale more than enough support. Isn't that lovely?

Before Martinez left in the fourth, he gave up a dreaded lead-off walk to Eaton and an RBI single to Abreu. The scoring for the Sox ended in the seventh as Tanner Scheppers serve a two-run blast to Tyler Flowers. Beckham had singled just before that.

The Rangers got on the board in the eighth when Jake Petricka loaded the bases and Zach Duke walked Mitch Moreland. The ninth began with Gallo hitting a solo shot, but it was too little and far too late to make a difference. Duke retired the remaining hitters in order. Suddenly, the Sox were 5-5 on their 11-game trip.

We can't explain how the Sox have such an up-and-down persona. It would be far more comforting to see blowouts on a regular basis. However, even the best teams can have trouble doing that. As long as the offense and pitching are consistent, anything is possible.

This long stretch of road games finally ends Thursday. Carlos Rodon will face Yovani Gallardo. To go above .500 for this trip could do wonders. Every little bit counts as the push to stay in the playoff race continues.
