Tragicomedy Of Errors

July 31 at Minnesota Twins


Toon Squad Update:
Obnoxio
When clown troupes collide ...

Short Take: Refusal of gifts leads to a loss.

Carlos Rodon had not pitched since the fifth of July. A White Sox fan might expect a bit of rust after a 26 day layoff. Rodon was rusty, but not in a wild way. Too many of his pitches were much to the liking of Minnesota hitters, and the White Sox lost 6-4 to the Twins.

Minnesota leadoff hitter Brian Dozier crushed the second pitch he saw to the left field gap for a leadoff double. After a Rodon wild pitch moved him to third, Robbie Grossman beat out a grounder to deep short and drove in the first run. Two batters later, Kennys Vargas slammed an upper deck home run. The Twins led 3-0 and some fans were still walking to their seats.

The Sox attempted a two-out rally in the top of the 3rd. Adam Eaton and Tim Anderson hit back to back singles. Melky Cabrera shot an RBI single to center, but Anderson overran second base and was tagged out. A possible big rally was killed by yet another Sox out on the bases.

The Twins got the run right back. Vargas hit a one-out single. With two outs, Jorge Polanco hit a double to left, scoring Vargas. But Polanco ran into his own baserunning misadventure, and was tagged out between second and third. 4-1 Twins.

Minnesota generosity was plentiful in the top of the 4th. Todd Frazier walked and was on second base with two out. Tyler Saladino grounded to third, and Frazier decided to advance anyway. Twins third baseman Miguel Sano may have been distracted by Frazier, and threw off target to first. Saladino was safe and the inning continued. Backup catcher Omar Narvaez hit a clutch single to center, scoring Frazier and sending Saladino to third. Twins center fielder Eddie Rosario got a little excited at the idea of throwing out Saladino, and heaved the ball into the third base camera well. Saladino scored on the error, and the Sox trailed by only one run.

Rodon gave up a home run to Dozier in the top of the 5th, and Sox rookie Carson Fulmer gave up another home run to Dozier in the top of the 7th. The Sox got one run back in the top of the 8th, on yet another Minnesota error with runners on first and second. Even though the Sox threatened in the 9th, Twins reliever Ryan Pressley managed to prevent any more runs and saved the win for starter Ervin Santana.

After a Monday off, the Sox move on to Detroit. James Shields will face Anibel Sanchez on Tuesday at 6:10 pm. The broadcast is on Comcast Sports Net.
