WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Q is Quality

June 10 vs. Houston

Sox Project Update:
Level floors
Certain floors not on the ground are getting easy to walk on.

Short Take:   Jose Quintana holds Astros in check, gets support needed to complete sweep.

Jose Quintana might want to appreciate games like this a little more. Given his luck, he's not likely to see them often. Don't tell him that after Wednesday's game though. He and the White Sox decided to pay tribute to the 2005 champs by sweeping the Houston Astros, culminating with a 4-1 win.

Early on, it appeared this would be a typical Quintana outing. After allowing a single run on a sacrifice fly from Jake Marisnick in the second, he settled in. But for five innings, the Sox offense could do nothing against Vincent Velasquez, who was making his Major League debut. Hey, let's throw another Sox trend in while we're at it.

Will Harris relieved Velasquez in the sixth and blew the perfect premiere when Adam LaRoche took him deep for a tie game. Quintana threw a scoreless seventh with the hope that he might actually get credit for a win. Geovany Soto took care of that by taking the first pitch from Tony Sipp out of the park. Possibly not wanting to give Quintana a chance to blow his own victory, Robin Ventura elected to start the eighth with Zach Putnam, who struck out the side.

Some insurance came in the bottom half when Carlos Sanchez led off with a single and Jose Abreu went yard to increase the Sox lead to three. It appeared to become four when Adam LaRoche beat the tag on a throw home on Conor Gillaspie's single, but the Astros won a challenge to end the inning. Hawk Harrelson was livid, especially after a similar close call where Avisail Garcia got caught stealing earlier. While not the worst replay call ever, such events sure get people talking about how accurate the system is.

The ninth saw David Robertson succeed at earning his third straight save of the series. It marks the second time in less than a month the Sox have swept an AL West opponent, the other being Oakland on the road. The explanation for that isn't clear, but it's too bad the Sox can't play these teams more often. If they could dominate like this against the AL Central, they could be much higher in the standings than fourth.

After a day off Thursday, John Danks will take the hill Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. Coincidentally, they'll be competing with the Blackhawks for attention in that city all weekend. It's so weird that two sports in Florida will feature teams from the same cities. That's why it's so easy to say sports doesn't always make sense.

Rebuilding Recap:
 We're sensing the best portions of the project are starting to come together. Hopefully, they're not just blowing smoke.
