Yard Sale

September 13 vs Minnesota Twins

Short Take:   Sale hit early and hard

Of all the AL Central opponents, the Minnesota Twins fare best against Chris Sale. That trend continued today as the Twins beat the White Sox and Chris Sale 7-0.

Aaron Hicks led off the 1st with a lucky infield base hit off Sox third baseman Mike Olt. Sale retired the next two batters, and was poised to get out of the inning Unscathed. But rookie Twins slugger Miguel Sano laced a single to center to drive in the first run of the game. Trevor Plouffe followed that with another single, and career Sox killer Torii Hunter homered on a 2-2 pitch. Giving up four runs in the first inning just isn't something Chris Sale does. Whether Chris is tipping his pitches, or the Twins have a hidden sign stealer, Twinkie batters seem to always know what's coming.

Sale set down the Twins in order in the 2nd, but ran into more trouble in the 3rd. After retiring the first two batters, four consecutive Twins hit singles to add on another two runs. But Chris came up big to prevent even more damage. Turnstyle Tyler Flowers let a passed ball get away, putting Twins runners on second and third. Sale managed to induce a ground ball out of Sox killer Kurt Suzuki, but the Sox trailed 6-0.

Meanwhile, Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson was pitching to the Sox hitters like Bob Gibson. After retiring the first 10 Sox in order, Tyler Saladino managed a one-out single in the 4th. A walk to Adam LaRoche put two runners on, but no timely hit was forthcoming.

Meanwhile, Sale's day had come to an end. Frankie Montas started the 4th for the Sox, and immediately got into trouble. A double, a single, and a walk loaded the bases with one out. Montas managed to escape by throwing a double play ground ball to Sano. Montas got into more trouble in the 6th by not throwing strikes. A walk, single, and another walk loaded the bases with no one out. Frankie struck out the side, but a Joe Mauer single with one out plated the final run of the day.

The Sox threatened in the bottom of the 6th, but came up empty. Micah Johnson led off with a double, and moved to third on Eaton's ground out. Unfortunately, Saladino grounded out to third and Micah tried to score. After being ruled safe initially, a Twinkie challenge got the safe call overturned and preserved the shutout. A couple of Sox singles in the 8th came to naught, and the Sox went down in order in the 9th. Other than the 6th inning threat, it was a zombie performance for the Sox offense.

Oakland comes to town for a four-game series on Monday. John Danks will take the hill at 7:10 pm. The game will be broadcast on Comcast Sports Net.
