At Least They Didn't Get No-Hit

September 22 at Detroit Tigers


Sox Project Update:
Yellow DANGER tape surrounds the site
There's no saving this one.

Short Take: Multiple Tigers pitchers nearly no-hit the Sox, until Tyler Saladino saves the day with a triple in the 9th; but Sox lose 2-1 in extras.

Poor Jose Quintana just cannot catch a break. The White Sox starter took a scoreless game into the 7th inning, allowing 8 hits, walking 1 and striking out 5. But, he: 1) made the mistake of giving up 1 run in the 7th and 2) before the game, forgot to sprinkle magical hitterish dust over the White Sox bats, again – so the Tigers pitching staff combined to hold our Sox hitless through 8-1/3 innings.

Yep, the White Sox were 2 outs away from being no-hit by a collection of Detroit pitchers. But within 2 minutes, it was a game within reach: a 9th-inning triple by Tyler Saladino broke up the no-hitter, and Adam Eaton followed up by singling in Saladino to tie it up.

Quintana was lifted after the 7th, and Jake Petricka did a fine job shutting down Detroit for 2-2/3 innings. But in the end, it didn't matter. Detroit walked it off in the 10th inning after Zach Duke failed to get the last out, and the Tigers beat the Sox 2-1.

Detroit Tigers starter Jack Norris pitched a perfect 5 innings, yet departed the game after the 5th. He was reportedly on a strict pitch count after recently returning from the DL. Tigers reliever Buck Farmer continued the perfect game through the 6th. Ian Krol came in for the 7th and hit leadoff hitter Adam Eaton with a pitch, for the Sox's first baserunner of the game. But the Sox could muster nothing else that inning.

And although not perfect, Quintana matched the zeros in the run column until the bottom of the 7th, when 3 straight Tigers singled to score a run.

Drew VerHagen took the 1-0 lead and shut the Sox down in the 8th; Sox reliever Jake Petricka reciprocated by sitting down the Tigers in order in the bottom of the inning.

Finally in the 9th, the Detroit pen cracked. Off of Neftali Feliz with 1 out, Tyler Saladino tripled, then Adam Eaton singled to tie the game. Eaton, however, was thrown out trying to steal when Jose Abreu was at bat; then Abreu struck out to end the inning.

The Tigers managed nothing against Jake Petricka in the bottom of the 9th, so into extra innings we went.

The Sox could muster nothing in the 10th off of Detroit reliever Blaine Hardy. In the bottom of the 10th, Petricka came out again and got the first 2 outs with little trouble. Then Robin Ventura called on Zack Duke to be the designated game- thrower get out lefty Anthony Gose. Instead, Duke walked Gose, then nearly walked Rajai Davis. With a 3-1 count, Davis jumped all over a 90-mph fastball and dumped it the right field corner. Gose scored; game over.

Well, whatever wool that the White Sox pulled over our eyes about this season has long been pulled off. We'll now make that wool into Blackhawks sweaters as playoff hopes for this wretched Sox team dissipate into the waning weeks of the season.

For today's TV broadcast, Brian Anderson sat in for Steve Stone and will do so tomorrow. Personally, I enjoy hearing different broadcasters paired with either Hawk or Stone - they infuse new energy into the telecast. Maybe it's time for rotating broadcasters? (Nah, that would probably be as effective as Ozzie Guillen's rotating DH.)

The Sox face Detroit for the last game of this 4-game set at tomorrow at 12:08 pm CST. Frankie Montas gets the start against Justin Verlander.
