Erroneous Results

May 15 at New York Yankees


Toon Squad Update:
Mike Doonesbury
American Everyman faces the odds stacked against him

Short Take: A tough slog comes up a bit short.

Orioles cast-off Miguel Gonzales has been given the opportunity to take the White Sox fifth starter role. Gonzales gave a gutsy effort today, but was denied a chance at victory by both pitch count and the White Sox bullpen. The Yankees defeated the White Sox by a score of 7-5.

The Gonzales saga got off to a rough start. Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury led off the bottom of the 1st with an infield hit. Sox second baseman Brett Lawrie could not make a clean throw to Jose Abreu. After a sharp Brett Gardner single to center, Carlos Beltran hit a sacrifice fly to left and the Yankees were on the board. Gonzales worked his way out of the inning and the damage was limited to a single run.

The Sox evened things up right away in the top of the 2nd. Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka couldn't find the plate, and walked both Melky Cabrera and Lawrie. Avi Garcia drove the first pitch he saw to left and tied the game up. The Sox took the lead in the 3rd on an Adam Eaton homer, but could not hold. Some Gonzales wildness, not all of it of his own making, loaded the bases with a single and two walks. Yankee second baseman Starlin Castro then beat out an infield hit to tie the game, and right fielder Dustin Ackley walked to force in another run for a 3-2 Yankee lead. Gonzalez did not receive the same strike zone as Tanaka, and had more borderline pitches called balls. Tanaka had more borderline pitches called strikes.

The Sox battled back nonetheless. Garcia started the 4th with another single, and stole second. Tyler Saladino singled Avi to third. Then Eaton executed a safety squeeze bunt to score a run and move Saladino to second. Austin Jackson's base hit then put the Sox in front 4-3.

The hallmarks of the 2016 Sox have been good defense and good relief pitching. Today, lapses in both led to the defeat. Dan Jennings was pitching in the 6th when Ellsbury hit an infield roller that Lawrie threw off line. Safe on the error, Ellsbury scored on Carlos Beltran's two-out homer off Zach Duke. The Yankees led 5-4.

Our Sox still did not give up. Tough Yankee reliever Dellin Betances gave up consecutive singles to Jose Abreu and Todd Frazier. Cabrera hit a double down the left field line that took a friendly bounce to Gardner, so only Abreu could score. Lawrie had a chance to make up for his error, but grounded harmlessly to the drawn-in infield. Garcia got himself out on strikes by swinging at a Betances slider out of the zone, as did Alex Avila. What could have been a signature big Sox 7th produced only one run, the last the Sox would score.

Sox bullpen stalwarts Matt Albers and Nate Jones each gave up a run, in the 7th and 8th innings respectively. Yankees late inning specialists Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman made short work of the Sox in the 8th and 9th, and the disappointing game finished with the Yankees on top.

After taking Monday off, the Sox return home to play the Houston Astros on Tuesday night. The game will be broadcast on WPWR My50, starting at 7:10 pm. Carlos Rodon will face the struggling Dallas Keuchel in a battle of lefties.
