Royal Snooze

June 12 vs Kansas City Royals


Toon Squad Update:

Sleepy offense naps on and on

Short Take: Well-pitched game goes to waste.

After pounding out seven runs on twelve hits Friday, it looked like the White Sox offense had awakend from its long slumber. Saturday and Sunday told a different story. The sleepy Sox offense scored but once today, and the White Sox lost to the Royals 3-1.

Sox starter Carlos Rodon got into trouble early. He gave up a leadoff double to Royals outfielder Whit Merrifield. But in a classic WSI taboo, Royals shortstop Alcedes Escobar gave up an out by sacrificing Merrifield to third. It looked like Rodon might escape when Eric Hosmer popped out on the infield, but he was too careful with Lorenzo Cain and walked him on four pitches. Kendrys Morales hit a 1-0 pitch into center, and the Royals struck first leading 1-0.

In the top of the 2nd, Rodon hit Paulo Orlando with a 0-2 pitch. Orlando got himself out on a failed stolen base attempt. Then the Royals strung three singles together and finished the inning leading 2-0.

The Sox put a brief rally together in the 5th, but let it go to waste. Alex Avila singled to center, and moved to second when Cain booted the ball. Avi Garcia shot a single up the middle, but Avila had to wait for it to get through, and could only advance to third. JB Shuck watched strike three with the bat on his shoulder, and Sox rookie shortstop Tim Anderson hit into his second double play of the game to bail out KC starter Yordano Ventura.

The final two runs of the game were scored on homers. Jose Abreu smashed a 400+ foot shot to center field in the Sox 6th. KC catcher Salvador Perez got the run back with a drive to left in the KC 9th. KC relievers shut down the Sox offense. Wade Davis struck out Melky Cabrera and Todd Frazier, both swinging at 3-2 pitches that were out of the strike zone.

The Sox continue their home stand Monday against the Detroit Tigers. Matt Boyd faces James Shields at 7:10 pm on Comcast Sports Net.

Sox offense as sleepy as Dagwood at work or after a meal.
