Shields Yields Two Too Many

July 22 vs Minnesota Twins


Toon Squad Update:
The Real Ghostbusters
The whole team has been slimed.

Short Take:  Shields gives up only 2 solo homers to Tigers sluggers, but phantom Sox offense sputters in 2-1 rain-shortened loss.

Our White Sox started the second half of the 2016 season miserably against several bottom-dwelling teams. They were swept out of Los Angeles and then managed only one win of 3 in Seattle.

Coming home to a steamy US Cellular Field, you would hope that a change was in order. Nope.

Annoyed White Sox fans have turned to predicting which Sox player would be traded, or whether GM Rick Hahn would pick up yet another aging veteran to “help” the club. Hahn spoke before the game, calling the White Sox “mired in mediocrity”. Brett Lawrie was removed from the game and replaced by Tyler Saldino in the 4th, causing the trade rumor mill to kick into high gear. But no - he just strained a hamstring, and is day-to-day.

Sox starter James Shields settled in after a couple of innings, and the Sox gave him a 1-0 lead in the 3rd. Adam Eaton doubled off the center field wall and then Tim Anderson blooped a single over Miguel Cabrera’s head, scoring Eaton. And I enjoyed Tim Anderson flashing some leather in the 2nd inning, ranging to his right to snag a Mike Aviles grounder and gunning him down mid-leap. (I’m having déjà vu, and it’s the good kind - I believe I wrote a very similar sentence about Anderson a few weeks ago.)

However, in the 5th inning, Shields gave up solo homers to Ian Kinsler and Miguel Cabrera. The Sox loaded the bases in the 6th, but true to 2016 form, could not capitalize. So the Tigers held that 2-1 lead up through the bottom of 7th inning, when thunderstorms began, the tarp came out, and the stadium emptied. Two+ hours of rain and thunder later, the game was called complete, and the Sox tallied yet another loss.

The Detroit-Sox series resumes tomorrow at 7:10; Jacob Turner is scheduled to face Michael Fulmer. That oughta be good, eh?
