Walk-off Woes

August 18 at Cleveland Indians


Toon Squad Update:
Foghorn Leghorn
"This is a joke, ah say, this is a joke, son."

Short Take:  Sox bullpen can't hold a quick lead, letting Indians peck away and wrangle a walk-off win over Sox 5-4.

Q: When was the last time the Sox won two games in a row against an AL Central opponent?

  1. I dunno, but it feels like an eternity.
  2. Have the Sox beat any AL Central opponents this year?
  3. I dunno, I was watching the Rio Olympics.
  4. Today.

The correct answer might be any of those, except (D). It's happened this season. Just not today.

In what may have been unofficial payback for last night’s come-from-behind Sox win, today the Indians walked off the Sox 5-4 in the bottom of the 9th.

The Sox got to struggling Indians starter Danny Salazar in the first inning. Salazar walked 3 hitters, and then Justin Morneau staked our boys to a 3-0 lead with a double off the wall.

Sox starter Carlos Rodon held the Tribe scoreless until the 5th inning, when Carlos Santana doubled and Jose Ramirez singled him in.

Rodon continued to pitch well through the 6th, when the Indians started to hit him pretty hard. After Roberto Perez singled and Jason Kipnis doubled, Francisco Lindor singled to cut the Sox lead to 1. Rodon got Mike Napoli to strike out swinging, but then loaded the bases when he hit Santana with a pitch. Ramirez then grounded deep to shortstop Tim Anderson. Jose Abreu pulled down Anderson’s high throw and somehow managed to keep his foot on the bag, getting the final out and preserving the lead.

In the end, Rodon pitched 6 solid innings, allowing 8 hits and 2 runs, striking out 5 and walking none (!).

The Sox widened the lead in 7th when Narvaez singled, scoring Anderson and making it 4-2 Good Guys.

But the White Sox bullpen let the Indians peck away. Chris Beck gave up 2 hits and a run in the 7th. In the 8th, Nate Jones walked Mike Napoli, who advanced to 2nd on a wild pitch, then gave up a single to Ramirez. Tie game.

The Sox offense couldn’t do much against Andrew Miller in the 9th, and Jacob Turner proved to be an easy mark for Cleveland. A leadoff double by Abraham Almonte turned into a runner at 3rd with no outs, when a high pitch was carelessly missed by Dionner Navarro. Almonte scored on a shallow fly by Tyler Naquin to end the game.

The Sox headed home for a series against the Oakland Athletics, starting tomorrow at 7:10; James Shields is set to duel Kendall Graveman.

WSI's That's All, Folks:  Boy...I say, boy, this season needs to go away - it bothers me.
