Cut To The Quick

May 8 vs Minnesota Twins


Toon Squad Update:

Being oblivious to outside pressure makes for a quick win

Short Take: Patient Production Sweeps Twins.

This year, Jose Quintana has been the White Sox 1A pitcher. His stinginess with runs allowed has kept the Sox in the game on every one of his starts. Today was no exception, as the Sox defeated the Minnesorta Twins by the score of 3-1.

Not everything was smooth sailing, however. Quintana got into some 1st inning trouble when Eduardo Nunez doubled on the second pitch of the game. Jose walked Jorge Polanco, and Sox fans began to get nervous. But Twinkie ineptitude saved the day. Nunez assumed a Miguel Sano shot to center would drop in and took off for home. Austin Jackson made a good run to the ball, and doubled the overly aggressive Nunez off second. Quintana worked out of the inning and the threat was quashed.

Twins pitcher Tyler Duffy was every bit as tough as Quintana. Duffy got ahead of Sox hitters all day by dropping a first pitch 79 mph curve in for strike one again and again. Sox batters had to work hard to string together some hits, and scored only a single run in any of their scoring innings.

As in yesterday's game, the Twins struck first. With one out in the 3rd, Eddie Rosario singled, and moved to third base on a Nunez single. Nunez ran for second on a 2-2 pitch to Polanco, who put the ball in play on the ground. Sox shortstop Jimmy Rollins had to take the out at first. The RBI grounder would be the last Twins run batted in of the day.

The Sox tied the game in the 4th with some patient small ball of their own. Adam Eaton walked to start the inning. Rollins singled to right, moving the speedy Eaton to third. Jose Abreu struck out, but Rollins stole second during Todd Frazier's at bat and took away the double play. Frazier grounded out but Eaton scored.

The very next inning, Sox tenaciousness struck again. The ever-improving Avi Garcia shot a one-out double to right, to extend his hitting streak to nine games. After a horribly slow start, we are starting to see the Spring Training version of Garcia. With two outs, Jackson doubled and Garcia put the Sox ahead for good. Then, in the seventh inning, White Sox mojo struck again. Avi struck out but reached first when backup Twins catcher Juan Centeno couldn't corral a bounced pitch. Dioner Navarro slugged a double to right, and Garcia motored all the way around to score the final Sox run.

Despite a questionable strike zone, Nate Jones shut the Twins down in the 8th, and David Robertson earned save number 10 with some great defensive help from Austin Jackson. The Sox have not lost this year to the crappy, perpetual losers from Minneapolis.

The Sox head back out on the road to play the Texas Rangers on Monday night. The game will be broadcast on WPWR My50, starting at 7:05 pm. Miguel Gonzalez attempts to lock down the fifth starter job for himself.

That's all folks:
The Sox worked patiently against a pitcher having a good outing and won the day.
