Half A Foot From Victory

April 17 at Tampa Bay Rays


Toon Squad Update:
Dilbert
Frustration at the incompetence of your co-workers

Short Take:   Decent pitching, not enough hitting.

The White Sox and Jose Quintana put up a valiant effort, but came up just short 3-2 to the Tampa Bay Rays. Quintana's troubles today were mostly of his own making. Jose's inefficient pitching found him behind in the count during much of the first three innings. This led to Tampa Bay hitters teeing off on middle-of-the-plate offerings. The Rays scored one run in the 1st and two runs in the 3rd, and those were enough to send the Sox down in defeat. Quintana's failure to cover first base cleanly on a two-out grounder to Jose Abreu allowed the decisive run to score.

The Sox had just scored a run in the top of the 3rd on good old-fashioned hustle. Rays pitcher Matt Moore made one of his few mistakes by hitting Avi Garcia on an 0-2 pitch to lead off the inning. Following two strikeouts, Adam Eaton beat out an infield single to keep the inning alive. Despite being down two strikes, Austin Jackson managed to shoot a single to right field and drive in the Sox's first run. Slumping Jose Abreu then struck out to end the Sox threat.

The typical CB Bucknor random strike zone today favored Matt Moore over Quintana. Moore struck out ten Sox hitters; struggling Sox third baseman Todd Frazier accounted for four of them.

The second Sox run was generated by a Brett Lawrie hustle double with one out in the top of the 7th. Rays left fielder Desmond Jennings was slow to get Lawrie's hit back to the infield, and Brett kept the motor running all the way into second. Avi Garcia followed with an RBI single, and Moore's day was done. But the Tampa pen kept the Sox hitters down the rest of the game, allowing only one baserunner on a walk. The struggling Sox managed only five runs of offense in Tampa this weekend, and were fortunate to come away with one win.

WSI's
That's all folks:
 The Sox batters were Wally to Quintana's Dilbert today, with a sad lack of productivity.
