WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Late Night Work

July 1 at St. Louis


Sox Project Update:
Tired, but happy workers
Everyone lost sleep to get the job done, but it was worth it.

Short Take:   After storms move through St. Louis, Jose Quintana pitches well and the offense comes alive in the last inning to remove any doubt.

Thanks to storms which kept popping up, there was doubt as to whether Wednesday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals would actually get played. It started with confusion as to whether the umpires wanted the tarp at Busch Stadium to be off or on. This went back and forth for the first two innings before the game went on without further interruption. And it ended with the White Sox sweeping this two-game series with a 7-1 final.

Jose Quintana’s only damage came in the first frame with former regular Sox killer Jhonny Peralta’s RBI double. From there, Quintana settled down with eight strikeouts over six innings. Sure, he surrendered a double to Jason Heyward and a triple to Mark Reynolds (thanks to Adam Eaton’s questionable defensive approach), but those runs never scored. If only his offense could support him.

Oh, but those bats actually worked to get Quintana the win this time. Tyler Flowers singled to lead off the fifth and three batters later, Adam Eaton singled to tie it up. Then, Melky Cabrera gave Quintana and the Sox the coveted lead by starting the sixth with a solo shot. As the game went on, it appeared the score would stay at 2-1.

However, the Sox had a midnight special in the ninth for those who remained in the stands. Seth Maness came in for St. Louis, only to give up an Alexei Ramirez single, a two-run Flowers homer and a ground-rule double to Carlos Sanchez. Randy Choate relieved Maness and loaded the bases by hitting Adam LaRoche and Eaton. So young gun Marcus Hatley came in and let all three inherited runners score, although a failed rundown against Eaton with two outs wasn’t his fault.

Once the Sox were done batting around for a five-spot, Scott Carroll pitched a scoreless ninth to finish the late evening. It continues to baffle everyone how this team can so well against many good teams and wet the bed against lesser ones. However, this isn’t the time to think about that. For now, everyone looks just fine after taking care of baseball’s best team in their own park.

The Sox return home Friday to face the Baltimore Orioles. John Danks will be matched against Ubaldo Jimenez for this 7:10 start. Yeah, you’re probably already chalking it up as a loss. How about just kicking back and enjoying a lefty-righty matchup instead? *braces for tomatoes pelted by fellow Sox fans*

Rebuilding Recap:
 How do we know this small step forward won’t be followed by two big steps back? This pattern needs to break before we increase our funding.
