So Far Yet So Near

September 17th vs. the Kansas City Royals


Toon Squad Update:
Droopy Dog
Droopy is guy who uses as little energy as possible. Kind of like this game.

Short Take:Despite a respectable performance by Miguel Gonzalez, the Sox lost 3-2 to the Royals in KC.

So far, yet so near. The White Sox are so far from being a championship ballclub, but yet so near in a division that, with a few more wins, could've put them in a wild-card slot. So many games this year were so close, with chances to score and runners waiting to come home, but they couldn't get that one hit, that one well-placed grounder, or that one last putout they needed to win.

Tonight was one of those. The Royals took the game 3-2 in an otherwise unremarkable game that featured no highlight-reel plays. Miguel Gonzalez started for the Sox and did not do a bad job at all, going seven innings on six hits, with two strikeouts and no walks. The offense wasn't there, though.

The three runs Gonzalez gave up were, like the previous night, accomplished with a string of well-placed hits. One in the first and two more in the fifth. The Sox got one run in the first after Tim Anderson's single and Jose Abreus's fielder's choice put a runner in scoring position for Melky Cabrera. His RBI single got our guys on the board first.

But beyond that they couldn't get off the dime until the eighth when they showed enough life to pick up a run on Avi Garcia's RBI double that scored Abreu. But 3-2 is where it stayed. Wade Davis came in to pitch the ninth for KC and struck out the side, ending the evening with a whimper.

October 2nd is the last game of the season. I'm looking forward to a series of personnel announcements beginning October 3rd. Until then, I'll just enjoy the rhythm of baseball for its own sake and leave the celebrating to the well-scrubbed novitiates on Clark Street.

That's all folks:
Not quite enough, like so many other games this year.

Avi Garcia

Got a timely hit in an untimely game. Too bad Melky was left stranded.
