Goofy Game, Goofy Finish

August 14 at Miami Marlins


Toon Squad Update:
Goofy
Garsh, can't win for tryin'

Short Take: Sale implosion dooms Sox.

The White Sox were going for a series sweep against the Miami Marlins with their ace on the hill. The odds should have forever been in the favor of the Sox, but it was not to be. In a goofy game with many weird hits and plays, the Sox were defeated on a play at the plate by a score of 5-4.

Adam Eaton got the Sox on the board in a hurry. He smashed the first pitch of the game down the line and off the foul pole for a quick 1-0 lead. With one out Melky Cabrera doubled and scored on a Jose Abreu single. The Sox were in business at the end of the 1st.

Chris Sale had the game on cruise control until the 5th inning. Chris used too many off-speed pitches, and the first three Marlins reached base on singles. Then Marlins pitcher Tom Koehler hit a 1-2 pitch up the middle off Sale's foot and into left field, driving in two runs. Then Ichiro Suzuki sacrificed to the catcher, and Sale neglected to cover home. Adeiny Hechavarria saw the uncovered plate and came all the way from second base to score the go-ahead run. The Marlins led 3-2.

The Sox got the run right back in the top of the 6th. Tyler Saladino, who had a good defensive day at second, singled and stole second an out later. Abreu doubled him home to tie the game at 3. But some bad umpiring gave the Marlins two more runs in the bottom of the 7th. Hechavarria reached on an infield single, but WGN replay showed the ball in Abreu's glove before Hechavarria's foot hit the bag. New York did not agree, and the on-field call stood. Then Ichiro Suzuki was "hit" by a pitch, but the WGN replay showed the ball nowhere near his hands. Again, New York failed to correct the error. Martin Prado took advantage of the free baserunners and drove in a run, and Marcel Ozuna drove in a second run. 5-3 Marlins.

The Sox did not give up, and, in the top of the 9th against Fernando Rodney, they made it close. Tim Anderson homered on a 3-2 fastball with one out, then Omar Narvaez singled. Carlos Sanchez ran for Narvaez. Justin Morneau came in to pinch hit for the pitcher's spot but struck out. Adam Eaton singled, and so did Tyler Saladino. Joe McEwing waved Sanchez home with two outs, but a perfect throw by left fielder Christian Yelich nailed Sanchez at the plate. Robin Ventura argued the plate blocking rule, but once again, New York disagreed and the game was over.

The Sox travel to Cleveland after a Monday off. Jose Quintana faces Corey Kluber on Tuesday at 6:10 pm. Comcast Sports Net broadcasts this one.

Aggressive base running lives right on the knife edge.
