Rattled in Arizona

May 24 at Arizona Diamondbacks


Sox Office Smash Hit:
Snakes on a Plane
"I have had it with all these **** Diamondbacks on the **** basepaths!"

Short Take:   Dbacks tag Jose Quintana for 8 runs and Sox cannot quite bridge the gap for a 8-6 loss.

Swept in Arizona.

Thus endeth the May 2017 west coast road trip. Well, the Diamondbacks are playing well and are second in their division, behind the Rockies. So there's that…

The Sox struck first when Leury Garcia homered in the 2nd against Dbacks spot starter Randall Delgado. In the 4th, Jose Abreu doubled, made it to 3rd on a passed ball, then scored when Avisail Garcia ground into a double play.

Sox starter Jose Quintana pitched a perfect first 3 innings, looking remarkedly like the Q of previous seasons. But in the bottom of the 4th, he gave up back to back doubles to Nick Ahmed and Paul Goldschmidt, scoring one, and then Chris Owings singled in Goldschmidt to tie the game.

And the Dbacks opened the floodgates in the 5th inning. Q didn't make it out of the inning, allowing 4 hits in a row and 4 more runs, including a 2-run homer by Jake Lamb. He was lifted for Anthony Swarzak with runners on 1st and 3rd. Another run was plated when Owings hit a sac fly. Then Brandon Drury smoked a liner to right that Avisail Garcia dropped, allowing another run to score. Garcia recovered and threw out Daniel Descalao at 2nd, but the damage was done.

Although it was a disappointing fifth inning, the 2017 edition of the Chicago White Sox does not quit. In the 6th, they began chipping away at the gap. Melky Cabrera singled and Abreu (who was 3/3 up to then) homered to make it 8-4 Dbacks. The big man is really hitting the ball well these days.

And the dynamic duo of Melky and Abreu each drove in a run in the 7th. It was 8-6 Dbacks, and 2 runs seemed surmountable.

Tommy Kahnle and Dave Robertson kept the Diamondbacks from adding on, but the Sox could manage no more runs. I had high hopes in the 9th when (I sense a theme here) Melky Cabrera walked and Jose Abreu strode up to the plate, but Abreu grounded out to end the game.

The Sox head home for a much-needed day off tomorrow to prep for Friday's double header against the Tigers. Starters appear to be TBD, but game 1 starts at 4:10 pm with game 2 to follow.
