Sale-ing Up Clark Street

July 11 vs. the Ursa Minors


Sox Project Update:
Solid Workmanship On A
Weed-Choked Site

The crew worked like the pros they are, showing inattentive onlookers what craftmanship means.

Short Take:Chris Sale got another ten strikeouts as the Sox beat the Addison Street Pretenders 5-1.

The Rebel Alliance took it to the Empire today. Trixie, bewildered, looked up from her four-pump soy frappuccino to ask Chad, "Who are these people?" After all, Clark Street is where guys are seen accesorizing with cute blue tees, not serious-looking black hats.

But it was those in the dark chapeaux who took it to the North Side Empire, which crumpled under the timely change-up of Chris Sale. In a 5-1 victory, the White Sox once again demonstrated to They Who Must Not Be Named how serious baseball is to be played.

Chris Sale went up against Jon Lester in a pitching matchup you'd pay to see. Sale was the Sale we've come to know and love, going seven innings of one-run ball while striking out ten. Lester was no slouch, also going seven and striking out eight, but allowing five big White Sox runs. Four of those were earned, but no matter. Five is more that one.

It started right away as Adam Eaton's leadoff double in the first was followed by Tyler Saladino's first Major League hit, an RBI triple. That was promptly followed by Jose Abreu's RBI single, which made it 2-0 before any outs were recorded. The crowd, more interested in each other than the game, didn't seem to notice as the noise level never changed.

Lester settled down after that, but Sale had resolved to settle in before he got out there. The game proceeded routinely until the seventh. Melky Cabrera singled and Avi Garcia followed with a softly-hit ball to the left side which was thrown wildly by thirdbaseman Kris Bryant for a two-base error. Alexei Ramirez singled home Cabrera, and Tyler Flowers hit a double off the centerfield weed patch to drive in two more. That made it 5-0 for the Bridgeport banner-bearers, which is plenty for Chris Sale.

Ah, but Chris had ten strikeouts, which took his pitch count well over 100 in the seventh. After giving up one run in the bottom of the frame, Sale was taken out for Jake Petricka. Petricka and Duke finished off the game quietly as all good relievers should do.

Great vast bedsheets adorned with an impressive blue "L" now flutter over the world south of Madison Street to warm the hearts of all those who appreciate the steak more than the sizzle. That's two in a row across the great divide, and tomorrow a chance for the sweep. Meanwhile, Trixie is still talking to Chad: "Is it done yet? I wanna go back to Cubby Bear."
