No Runs for You!

July 6 vs. N.Y. Yankees


Toon Squad Update:
Road Runner
The Sox were always a step ahead of the Yankees.

Short Take:   The Sox take yet another series by shutting out the Yankees.

On Wednesday, I decided to do the Chicago baseball doubleheader for the first time. My uncle had a bleacher ticket to see the Cubs, who lost to the Cincinnati Reds 5-3. Even with no one to go with, I hopped on the Red Line to enjoy a Major League experience far more to my liking. The decision proved to be a good one as the White Sox shut out the New York Yankees 5-0.

For the first two innings, Miguel Gonzalez pitched like the fifth starter he is, putting runners at second both times and consistently going deep into counts. But he got out of potential trouble both times. Perhaps inspired by this good fortune, Gonzalez proceeded to throw seven shutout innings, at one point retiring eight Yankees in a row. He allowed only one baserunner to reach third, a feat repeated by Zach Duke and David Robertson in their two innings of relief.

Over the past month, Yankees starter Michael Pineda has consistently decreased his ERA and it appeared this game would be no different after he retired the first five Sox hitters in short order. With two outs in the second though, Brett Lawrie singled, followed by a four-pitch walk by Dioner Navarro. Both scored on an Avisail Garcia single and J.B. Shuck ground-rule double respectively. Tim Anderson then provided some breathing room on a two-strike count by doubling in Garcia and Shuck.

The Sox tallied one more run in the sixth when Melky Cabrera's walk scored on a fielder's choice from Lawrie. It made a large lead insurmountable for a Yankees offense that couldn't do anything. The only thing to complain about this game took place in the ninth when the umpires took over six minutes to determine a game-ending double play was actually a groundout with two outs. They really need to find some way to speed replay decisions up. It didn't affect Robertson though as he struck out Chase Headley for the final out right after.

That's five straight series wins for the White Sox, who have moved into third in the Central by half a game over the struggling Royals. The pitching continues to be solid and the offense is finding support for everybody. It's always fun when both sides compliment each other like that. As we look toward the second half of the season, we wonder if it will happen enough that just maybe, our boys will be playing in October.

After a well-earned day off Thursday, the Sox will welcome the putrid Atlanta Braves to the South Side on Friday. Chris Sale will start against Matt Wisler at 7:10. Should we just say the Sox won that game now? It's as fun as seeing two ballgames in one day and getting your desired outcomes for both.

That's all folks:
 Those poor Coyote-type Yankees were blindsided by a fifth starter they surely didn't expect much from.
