White Sox Right on Q

May 3rd, 2016 vs. Boston Red Sox


Toon Squad Update:
Bart Simpson
"EAT MY SHORTS AMERICAN LEAGUE!"

Short Take:   Quintana shuts down Boston and Abreu supplies the power in White Sox victory.

After a grueling stretch of 19 games in 19 days, the first place White Sox got a much deserved day off on Monday. The rested Pale Hose came to 35th & Shields for some home cookin' and picked up right where they left off on the road trip, dispatching the AL East leading Red Sox by a final of 4-1. The victory was highlighted by tremendous pitching from Jose Quintana and a resurgent power performance from Jose Abreu.

The White Sox would draw first blood in this game in the bottom of the 1st. Adam Eaton singled to open the frame with a line drive to RF. Jose Abreu followed by blasting a triple to deep CF off of Red Sox knuckle baller Steven Wright that quickly staked Quintana to a 1-0 lead. Jose threw the ball well in the game, but he had some stellar outfield defense in the early going to back him up. Austin Jackson stole a HR with a spectacular catch at the top of the CF wall. The grab would earn a salute from the big man as he made his way back to the Red Sox dugout. The defensive theft wasn't over though as Adam Eaton would continue to rob the American League of extra base hits snatching away a sure double from Jackie Bradley Jr. It might be early May, but so far, the White Sox outfield is where hits go to die in 2016.

The bottom of the 3rd began in promising fashion. Austin Jackson and Adam Eaton would get things going with back to back walks from Wright. Rollins seemed uncomfortable against the knuckle baller all night but managed to move Eaton and Jackson into scoring position with a slow rolling groundout. Abreu was intentionally walked to load the bases for Todd Frazier who quickly lunged at a first pitch knuckler. He managed to make enough contact to get the run home on a groundout making it 2-0 White Sox. The Sox would strand the remaining baserunners and end up settling for the 1 manufactured run.

Quintana would hold the score at 2-0 until the top of the 5th inning. Hanley Ramirez took an outside fastball into the bullpen sports bar in RF for a solo blast cutting the Sox lead in half to 2-1. It was just a good piece of hitting by Hanley and Boston crept uncomfortably close to stealing this game. However, the score would hold serve until the bottom of the 8th inning as the White Sox would continue to follow a familiar script for 2016 with their late scoring offense. Eaton would get things rolling off Red Sox setup man Tazawa with a leadoff bunt single. Jimmy Rollins followed with a walk and that set the stage for an encore of the Jose Abreu power show. Jose crushed a Tazawa offering for a line drive double into LF scoring both Eaton and Rollins for his 3rd RBI of the evening. The Sox finally had the insurance runs they needed at 4-1. The offensive inning would continue for the White Sox but a questionable replay call on an infield single from Melky gave the Red Sox some breathing room to pitch out of further danger allowing no more runs to score. Despite the stranded runners in the 8th, the White Sox have completely reversed a trend from previous seasons that saw their offense shut down in the late innings. These days? The Sox are just getting warmed up in the 7th, 8th, and 9th innings. It's becoming quite the good habit to develop for a winning ballclub.

Jose Quintana had his "plus plus" fastball working tonight. He regularly hit 94mph on the radar gun throughout the evening. Throw in a curveball that he was grabbing for strikes whenever he wanted along with changing eye levels and you have a recipe for a long day at the office for the Boston Red Sox. Jose Quintana is finally getting run support folks and he has notched his 4th win of the season on May 3rd. David Robertson worked a quiet 1-2-3 inning to notch his AL leading 9th save of the season.

The South Siders keep answering the call against elite competition in the American League. The "good guys" have run their record to 19W-8L and don't show any signs of being a fluke. As Ozzie Guillen once said: "When you win, the beer tastes better." I can't disagree. Carlos Rodon takes the bump against the Red Sox in Game 2 vs. Clay Buchholz.

Game Notes-

-Jose Quintana lowered his E.R.A. to 1.40

-Eaton went 2 for 3 with a walk and 1 run scored

-Jose Abreu had his 5th consecutive multi-hit game.

-Brett Lawrie walked for the 12th time tonight. He had only 28 walks for the entire 2015 season.
