Same Old Story

June 22 vs Minnesota Twins

Sox Office Smash Hit:
Star Wars: Attack of the Clones
Only because it was Star Wars Night at Target Field, and – like this game -- this movie is one that I don't ever care to see again.

Short Take:  Sox offense can't solve Jose Berrios while Twins tweak Holmberg; Sox lose third straight game, 4-2.

What's it like to have your starter pitch a solid 8 innings of 5-hit, 2 ER baseball? Ask the Twins tonight – they had Jose Berrios, who did just that against our mostly ineffective White Sox. The White Sox haven't had one of those games with their starters in…well, I'm too lazy to look it up, but it feels like it was a long, long ago in a galaxy far, far, away.

The first turn at bat for our White Sox looked pretty promising. Leadoff man Alen Hanson walked and advanced on Melky Cabrera's fielder's choice, then scored when Avisail Garcia singled to left. The throw beat out Hanson, but catcher Jason Castro couldn't hang on to it, and the Sox took an early lead.

In the bottom of the 2nd, David Holmberg gave up singles to Max Kepler and Byron Buxton. Omar Narvaez made a nice play on a crappy bunt by Ehir Adrianza, and got Kepler at 3rd for the force. But then Brian Dozier doubled in Buxton to tie the game.

In the 3rd, a fortuitous bounce allowed to Sox to again take the lead, when Adam Engel's grounder to 3rd bounded high over Eduardo Escobar's head. Engel raced to 2nd, took 3rd on a bunt by Hanson, and scored on a Melky Cabrera GIDP.

But just as quickly, the Twins took the lead in the bottom of the inning and they never looked back. Holmberg promptly fell behind Miguel Sano, who got the 3-0 green light and smashed it in the upper deck in right center field. Holmberg followed that fine, hah, performance by coughing up a couple more hits, and another run scored. Then Tim Anderson muffed what should have been an inning-ending double play that allowed yet another run to score (Anderson's 16th error of the season already). It was 4-2 Twins. We all knew Holmberg wasn't long for this game, after finally finishing the inning with his pitch count at 72.

It was Star Wars Night at Target Field, and after getting a lead to work with, Berrios took the theme to heart. Beginning in the top of the 4th, he put on a Darth Vader-like performance, striking fear in the South Siders' order. And the Sox acted just like Vader's subservient cronies.

And that was pretty much game over. Holmberg was taken out in the 4th for Gregory Infante, who threw a couple of scoreless innings. Michael Ynoa also kept the Twins off the board for two innings. Berrios pitched through 8, and Brandon Kitzler closed it out.

The Sox will try to not get swept tomorrow at 12:10 pm. Jose Quintana faces Nik Turley.

 Do, or do not. There is no try. (Yeah, they didn't.)
