Quite The Offensive Outburst

July 3 at Houston Astros


Toon Squad Update:
Deadshot
Quintana's sniper-like accuracy took down Sox foes

Short Take: Quintana makes four runs hold up, easily.

One normally doesn't consider four runs to be an offensive outburst, but for Jose Quintana, that's a life-saving oasis. Quintana was masterful today, giving up only two hits, one a homer, as the Sox defeated the Houston Astros 4-1.

Quintana gave up his only run of the day to the Astros leadoff hitter, George Springer. Springer homered on the second pitch of the game, but after that, Jose shut his opponents down. The Astros mananged only one other hit and two walks, while striking out four times.

The White Sox took the lead for good in the top of the 3rd inning. JB Shuck patiently waited out Astros pitcher Collin McHugh for a dreaded leadoff walk. Sox phenom Tim Anderson followed that up with a double to right, Shuck stopping at third. The Astros chose to play the middle infield back, and Adam Eaton took advantage with a ground ball to short, plating the first Sox run. Jose Abreu then shot a single to center, and Anderson scored the lead and winning run.

In the bottom of the 3rd, it looked at first as if Quintana didn't know what to do with a lead. Astros catcher Jason Castro doubled to right, and then Quintana walked Springer after being ahead 0-2 in the count. Then Jose toughened up, and struck out Marwin Gonzalez. JB Shuck put away the dangerous Altuve and Correa on center field fly outs.

The Sox scored two important insurance runs in the top of the 8th. DH Alex Avila beat the shift with a single to left, and Tyler Saladino came on to pinch run. Two pitches later, Saladino was standing on second with his fourth stolen base of the season. Brett Lawrie shot a 1-2 pitch into center for a RBI single, then took second when Astros center fielder Carlos Gomez threw the ball home and missed the cutoff. Dioner Navarro made the Astros pay by looping an 0-2 pitch into left field for a single, scoring Lawrie.

Nate Jones made quick work of the Astros in the bottom of the 8th, striking out Luis Valbuena and Jason Castro, each on three pitches. Springer then grounded out to short on pitch number seven. David Robertson gave Sox fans a bit of a scare in the 9th. Gonzalez singled to lead off, but then Robertson recorded a ground out and a strikeout. The .219-hitting Gomez was offered only one hittable pitch, and he gratefully took his walk. Robertson then retired tying run AJ Reed on strikes to preserve the win for Quinana and the Sox.

The Sox return home on Monday for a three game series with the Yankees. The rejuvinated James Shields faces CC Sabathia at 1:10 pm. The game will be broadcast on Comcast Sports Net.

Four series wins in a row makes for a positive outlook.
