WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Royally sQrewed

May 20 Vs. Royals


Toon Squad Update:

Not a lot of life, energy or positive results.

Short Take: Sox bats continue to struggle while the Roylas eventually solve quintana.

Anytime the Sox want to start playing like they were the first 5 weeks of the season again would be fine by me. Tonight a familiar story from the past few weeks played out with the Sox bats struggling while Jose Quintana looked good for a while but eventually broke down and gave up 4 runs and the Sox went on to lose 4-1.

Early in this game the Sox looked like they might have a good night. The offense generated a run in the second after loading the bases before Austin Jackson hit a sacrifice fly to drive in Melky Cabrera. That was all they managed though and for a while it looked like Quintana was going to have to Chris Sale the night to get a win. For a while that even looked possible. Jose breezed through the first 5 innings yielding a lone single that was promptly erased by a double play. He'd faced the minimum when entering the 6th and promptly recorded an out. Then things went south... Infante doubled and Orlando followed with a double of his own to tie the game. An infield single by Escobar left men at first and second and then Cain doubled to drive in the go ahead run. On the next play they caught Escobar in a rundown off third to record the second out. Unfortunately Morales then singled to drive in a third run before Jose managed to fan Perez to end the inning. When the Royals opened the 7th with back to back singles and a sacrifice bunt Robin had seen enough and pulled Quintana. Putnam came on and managed to hold the Royals to a single run but only because of a seeing eye liner that snagged Jose Abreu's mitt with one out and the bases loaded. Abreu was able to tag out the runner caught off first for an unassisted double play to keep Sox hopes alive.

Considering the lack of hits and walks tonight the Sox actually had some scoring chances, but once again a lack of timely hitting left them with a sole run entering the ninth inning. They loaded the bases in the second but only scored one run. They had two more runners on in the 3rd and 4th but failed to drive anyone in. They had two more on in the 7th with only one out but Frazier lined into an inning ending double play of his own as Eaton got too far of second and was thrown out before he could get back. I guess that's only fair given how the top of the seventh had ended, but you could almost feel the air go out of the stadium when that happened. The 8th came and went with no signs of life from the offense but with one out in the 9th Carlos Sanchez pinch hit for Austin Jackson and looped a single into center. Tyler Saladino promptly hit another line drive that unfortunately was snagged by the Royals' shortstop. After Sanchez took second on an indifference and third on a wild pitch, Adam Eaton struck out looking to end the game and start this weekend series off on a sour note.

Not much to be happy with here, Sox fans. I suppose Jamie Purke making his MLB debut and recording a scoreless 1.1 innings of work including a strikeout qualifies as something to smile about but it's a sad, frumpy, grumpy smile. Hopefully Rodon builds on his better outing from last game and gives the Sox a chance tomorrow. The bats need to wake up big time that's for sure. Game time is at 1:10 PM in Chicago. Hopefully the Sox can start winning again.
