WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Bad luck and no luck and injuries to boot.

Short Take:Adding injury to insult the Sox lose in familiar fashion.

So did you watch? Or did you watch the Bears get blown out in humiliating fashion to open the preseason? Or maybe you watched the Olympics. The Olympics haven't started for me as I type this sentence and the Bears aren't on local TV here in California so I actually did watch while following the Bears on Gamecast. Lucky me and lucky you, you get to read all about that thing I just witnessed which sort of resembled baseball and far too much resembled White Sox baseball during this long lost season of 2016. Tonight the Sox yielded a grand total of 4 hits and one walk while seeing their starting pitcher, Miguel Gonzalez, go down with a groin strain. It mattered not they lost 2-1.

So yeah, Miguel Gonzalez lasted an inning plus. He managed to strain his groin while pitching to the leadoff hitter in the second inning. Get well soon Miguel. In to the game came Future PTC winner Michael Ynoa (and no that's not a typo, more of a teaser - or a spoiler if you prefer). Ynoa true to the award he was to receive by yours truly promptly plunked Salvador Perez who had been unlucky enough to be standing in the batters' box when Miguel got hurt. Take that Sal and that'll teach you to be in the general vicinity when our guy trips over his own feet and is forced to leave the game. Tim Anderson then booted a grounder to put men on first and second. Here we go again, thought those of us actually watching. A sacrifice back to Ynoa put men on second and third and all 6 of us watching knew some seeing eye slapper off the plate was sure to follow. But, surprise, surprise Ynoa actually found his groove and induced a comebacker to the mound before striking out Raul Mondesi to end the inning and preserve the Sox 1-0 lead. Michel went on to retire the next 6 batters he faced to run his string to 9 straight. He left the game having yielded no hits or walks in three solid innings. More like that please Mr. Ynoa.

Offensively the Sox had another subpar night. They did manage to take the lead in the top of the second on consecutive singles by Anderson, Carlos Sanchez and Jason Coats - getting his first start since being recalled and making it pay with his first major league RBI. Unfortunately for the next seven innings the Sox managed a grand total of three hits and no walks off of Royals starter Danny Duffy who went the distance. Melky Cabrera, Jose Abreu and Tim Anderson had those hits and every one was a single (what's new?). They didn't really threaten though Tim Anderson did actually make it to second base with two outs in the fourth before Coats failed to relive his second inning magic and grounded out to second.

After Ynoa left the game in the fourth the Sox went to Carson Fulmer. Fulmer actually wasn't horrible but he did yield all three of the remaining Royals hits and that sole walk mentioned above. Dyson led off the sixth with that walk and stole second (DUH!) though it took a replay to give him the base as he was initially called out. Fulmer then induced a comebacker from Paulo Orlando but after glancing at third he threw to first and Dyson advanced. Cheslor Cuthbert followed with one of the best placed triples you'll ever see. With Shuck shifted to left and Eaton hugging the line in right the ball split the gap. It wasn't hit hard but it carried well and no one could run it down before it went all the way to the wall. Eric Hosmer (GRRRRR!) then slapped a pitch that was about 6" off the ground and a good 10" outside into left field to drive in the eventual game winner. Fulmer then finished the inning and pitched the 7th too allowing that final hit but getting out of the inning with no further damage.

Tommy Kahnle came on and pitched the 8th and was surprisingly effective striking out the side and opening the door for a tense and gripping 9th... just kidding. Abreu did manage to nearly single to lead off but Duffy induced a routine flyball from Frazier and then struck out Navarro to finish the Sox and lock down the complete game win. Ah well at least the Bears... oh never mind... Hey how about Michael Phelps, Katie Ledecky and the women's gymnastics team? Gotta have something to be proud about and it sure didn't happen for any team most fans reading this might care about tonight. Well our Sox are back at it tomorrow in Florida where Carlos Rodon looks to build on his last solid outing. Game time is at 6:10 in Chicago. I'll be back recapping that one too. Hope we all have something better to read/write about.
