Moncada Debuts, But Sox Lose

July 19 vs LA Dodgers

A new superhero-to-be joins the rag-tag band of misfits.

Short Take:  Yoan Moncada's White Sox debut creates a buzz, but Dodgers sting Sox pitching for 9 runs in rain-shortened loss.

Our hapless 2017 White Sox chalked up their 6th loss in a row tonight, losing to the Dodgers 9-1. To be fair, the Dodgers have the best record in baseball. Playing against this White Sox team that looks very much like a AAA+ team must feel like spring training to them.

Last night, Rick Hahn continued to trade pieces of the Sox for prospects, and shipped Todd Frazier, Dave Robertson, and Tommy Kahnle to the Yanks for Blake Rutherford (OF) (#30 prospect in all MLB), Ian Clarkin (LHP prospect), Tyler Clippard (RHP), and Tito Polo (OF prospect).

Needless to say, there were a couple of open roster spots, so Yoan Monada got the call and was in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game. A very nice crowd was on hand to welcome Moncada to the South Side. Acquired as the central piece of the trade that sent Chris Sale to the Boston Red Sox, Moncada was greeted with standing ovations when he was announced in the lineup, and for his appearance at the plate in the 2nd inning. Moncada drew a walk after being behind 0-2, and was roundly cheered for his first at-bat.

But there was little to cheer about for the rest of the game – except, perhaps, for the opportunity to spend a lovely evening at Sox Park. My own DH (designated hubby) and I sat down the right field line close to the field amongst quite a few Dodger fans, and we enjoyed the comfortable weather and large crowd for a Wednesday night.

Perhaps the leadoff home run by Chris Taylor off Sox starter Carlos Rodon was foretelling how this game would go. Dodgers hitters smacked Rodon's offerings all over the field. Rodon only made it 3.2 innings, giving up 5 runs on 7 hits, 4 home runs (including 2 to Enrique Hernandez), walking 3 and striking out 4.

The Sox countered with their own matching home run in the 1st by Melky Cabrera. But that was all the scoring that the White Sox would manage against Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda, or any other pitcher.

Chris Beck replaced Rodon and shut down the Dodgers for 1.2 innings, but in the 6th, back to back to back doubles by Yasiel Puig, Trayce Thompson, and Chris Taylor ran the score to 7-1. David Holmberg replaced Beck, coughed up singles to Corey Seager and Justin Turner, and it was 9-1.

The DH and I happened to be taking a walkabout in the outfield concourse in the 6th inning, enjoying the crowd, spending money in a fan shop, and taking pictures with Paul Konerko's likeness. We didn't even notice that the Sox had given up 4 more runs! With the score 9-1 and with impending bad weather approaching, we decided to head straight for the exit instead of our seats. By the time we got to Harlem Avenue, the heavens had opened and the lightning was spectacular.

The game was halted in the 8th with 2 down and Dodgers leading 9-1, and later called final.

Moncada finished the game 0-2 with a walk. But that the ball really jumps off his bat; I can't wait to see what he can do. Welcome to the White Sox, Yoan.

A day off tomorrow, then the Sox play the Royals in Kansas City, 7:15 pm CST. James Shields faces Ian Kennedy.
