The Kids Can Beat the Indians

September 8 vs Cleveland Indians


Sox Project Update:
New building materials are proving useful
Too bad the foundation already collapsed.

Short Take:  Callups Rob Brantly and Trayce Thompson back Carlos Rodon's strong start with 5 RBIs; Sox beat Tribe 7-4

Rain, rain, go away…the kids wanted to play today. And play the White Sox did, to the end result of a 7-4 win over the Cleveland Indians. A sparse, damp crowd endured an hour-long rainless rain delay, only to sit down for the 1st pitch amid falling raindrops. But the rain was short-lived and South Side baseball played on.

The Sox sent rookie starter Carlos Rodon against Indians starter Carlos Carrasco. Carrasco was making his first start after being placed on the DL for a shoulder issue more than two weeks ago. He'd had a good season until his DL stint, with a 12-9 record, a 1.06 WHIP and an ERA of 3.73. He was on a 75 pitch limit this game, but the Sox made sure he didn't get to that limit.

In the 2nd inning, after singles from Avisail Garcia and Trayce Thompson, September callup catcher Rob Brantly hit a 3-run homer on the first pitch he saw. Then in the 3rd inning, Jose Abreu's no-doubter into the left field bleachers tacked on one to give our Sox a comfortable 4-0 lead. After Abreu's home run, Carrasco walked two and was removed after 58 pitches in 3-2/3 innings. He was replaced by Giovanni Soto (not, NOT Geovany Soto). The Sox bats were quiet against Soto. But the Sox scraped up another run against reliever Austin Adams in the 5th, when an Alexei Ramirez double was followed by an Abreu single. The Sox extended the lead to 5-1.

In the meantime, Sox starter Carlos Rodon continued to look more impressive as the season rolls on. He pitched 7 strong innings, giving up 1 earned run, 5 hits, 8 strikeouts, and 1 walk. It was especially satisfying to watch him quash career Sox killer Ryan Raburn (0/3, 1 K).

In other good news, Trayce Thompson -- finally inserted in the lineup against a righty -- was 2/3 with a walk and earned 2 RBIs in the 7th off of righty reliever Ryan Webb. Thompson was thrown out trying to stretch that screamer down the 3rd base line into a double, but the runs scored to pad the Sox's lead to 7-1.

Sent in to the 8th for Rodon, Nate Jones immediately gave up a double to Mike Aviles, followed by a homer to Michael Brantley. This cut the Sox lead to 7-3. After getting Francisco Lindor to ground out, Jones walked Carlos Santana, inspiring Coop to take a trip to the mound. This apparently had the desired effect, as Jones then got the last two outs without much trouble.

Indians reliever Gavin Floyd (yes, THAT Gavin Floyd) shut down the Sox in the 8th. Then Zach Duke made the 9th, uh, interesting, by continuing his propensity for giving up homers. Duke gave up a loooong home run to pinch hitter Jose Ramirez (I think that thing landed on the left field concourse); that made it 7-4 Sox. The incredible shrinking lead was making me think about getting nervous. But Duke followed up by striking out Michael Martinez and Jason Kipnis. Brought in to face Mike Aviles, Dave Robertson threw one pitch and got Aviles to ground out on a checked swing. Whew!

The Sox face the Indians for the rubber game of this 3-game set at the Cell tomorrow at 7:10 pm CST. Jeff Samardzija is scheduled to face Josh Tomlin.
