Quick Lead Nets Q an Elusive Win

August 4 at Detroit Tigers


Toon Squad Update:
Shroeder
Like Jose Quintana, he just puts his head down and plays, no matter what's going on.

Short Take:  Bad day for Tigers starting pitcher opens door for 6-3 Sox win -- with Jose Quintana on the mound to boot.

What? Offense for Jose Quintana? A Jose Abreu home run? Dave Robertson didn’t blow the save? A White Sox winner? What alternate universe it this?

But don’t go buying your playoff tickets yet, Sox fans. Mostly what happened today is that the Sox offense scored 6 runs off a struggling Jordan Zimmerman in the 1st two innings. The Detroit bullpen easily suppressed the Sox offense for the rest of the game, while the Detroit hitters chipped away at the lead. They couldn’t chip away enough, though, and the Sox held off the Tigers for a 6-3 win.

Jose Quintana pitched well, giving up 3 runs and 8 hits over 7-2/3 innings pitched. But if it wasn’t for the poor showing by Zimmerman, causing his early exit from the game, this would have been another no-show by the Sox offense for Hard-Luck Jose.

But I guess we’ll take it, along with the corresponding non-sweep by the Tigers.

Justin Morneau led off the Sox scoring with a double in the 1st, scoring Tim Anderson from 3rd. Anderson had been hit by a pitch on his left hand, and left the game after the inning; he is day-to-day.

Detroit’s Ian Kinsler led off the bottom of the 1st with a solo home run, tying up the game. But Avisail Garcia returned the favor by leading off the top of the 2nd with his own solo dinger. The Sox continued to pummel Zimmerman, with RBIs from Melky Cabrera, Adam Eaton, and Jose Abreu – who finally hit a home run after a bazillion days since his last one. With the Sox leading 6-1 and 2 outs in the 2nd, Zimmerman was yanked and a series of Detroit relievers finished the game.

Quintana was on cruise control until the 7th, when he gave up three straight singles and allowed the Tigers to score a run with no outs. But he knuckled down and got the next three hitters out, to escape the jam still holding a 6-2 lead. He would give up only one more run on a solo homer to Miguel Cabrera in the 8th. Nate Jones took over for the last out of the 8th, and with a 6-3 lead, Dave Robertson successfully closed the game.

The Sox headed home for a series against the Baltimore Orioles, starting tomorrow at 7:10; Miguel Gonzalez is set to duel Yovani Gallardo.

WSI's That's All, Folks:  Just keep your head down and pitch, Q, and ye shall (sometimes) be rewarded.
