Royals go MEEP! MEEP!

May 27 at Royals


Toon Squad Update:
Wile E. Coyote
Dropped a couple bombs on the Royals only to watch them sprint out of the way and laugh.

Short Take: Gonzalez has a solid outing and the Sox put up a 5-spot but it's not enough against our speedy nemesis.

The Sox went to Kansas City badly in need of a win. After a brutal two week stretch and a day off they were hoping for a fresh start against their division rival the Royals. Early in the game it looked like more of the same as the bats were held perfectly silent for the first five innings. After that they woke up and managed to put up a 5 spot in the 6th to take a 4-run lead. Unfortunately it didn't hold up as the Royals did that annoying slap the ball around and dink and donk you to death while their speedy players run wild. They ended up taking a 2-run lead into the ninth and that's how the game ended as the Sox lost 7-5.

The Sox finally scored some runs tonight, but it took 5+ innings to get anything going. After failing to reach base at all for the first five frames, the Sox managed to load the bases with one out in the 6th when Garcia, Navarro and Jackson slapped back-to-back-to-back singles. Garcia almost overran the stop sign but managed to get back to third and that brought up Melky Cabrera. Melky promptly hit a no-doubt-about-it bomb into the left field stands for a grand slam and a 4-1 Sox lead. Todd Frazier promptly followed with a bomb of his own and things were looking up.

Miguel Gonzalez actually had a solid outing for the Sox. Pitching to contact as he does can be risky, but tonight it worked as the defense made several solid plays and Gonzalez made it through 6.1 innings and left with a 5-2 lead after yielding a 1-out double in the seventh. Then the bullpen came on and honestly they weren't as bad as the box score shows, the Royals just managed to put their groundballs and ducksnorts where nothing could be done with them. After Gonzalez exited Dan Jennings came on and pitched to a single batter and promptly walked him. That brought in Albers who induced a groundball to short but it was hit too softly and all Rollins could do was stick it in his pocket as the bases were loaded. A seeing-eye single later and the Royals were within one. Albers threw a wild pitch to put runners at second and third which required a replay to overturn the out call at third. Albers finished by striking out Cain and that brought on Duke. Duke got Hosmer in a quick hole but Hosmer managed to drop a ducksnort into left to score the two runners. Nate Jones came on and got out of the inning with no further damage but gave up another run in the 9th to finish the scoring.

The Sox had scoring chances of their own in each of the final two innings but couldn't do anything with them and honestly it feels like they maxed out their opportunities tonight, scoring 5 runs on 8 hits and a lone walk. Our boyz had a chance to bust out of their hole tonight but managed to only dig themselves in deeper. Not entirely the team's fault to some extent they got unlucky. Honestly watching the Royals pull this crap time and time again gets old. Inches from a win becomes miles from a victory. At least the Toons lost too so the fragile hold on first remains for another day. Tomorrow Carlos Rodon pitches for the Sox in a game that will feel a bit desperate after losing like this tonight. Hopefully the Sox can put some more runs on the board. Game time is at 1:15 in Chicago. Maybe they can finally keep that damned bird in it's cage.

That's all folks:
 Sox had the Royals in a trap and then wound up inside themselves watching KC run wild and laugh.
