A Giant Score For The Giants's Loss

September 9th vs. the San Francisco Giants


Sox Office Smash Hit:
The Force Awakens
Tonight some people came out of the scrapyard and defeated the enemy in a big way, just like in a galaxy far, far away.

Short Take: In a festival of offense, the Sox got 18 hits, including Jose Abreu's cycle, to beat the Giants 13-1.

It was a cool September night on 35th Street. Jose Abreu hit for the cycle, Tim Anderson and Yolmer Sanchez were each one hit away from the cycle, and the under-construction White Sox got a total of 18 hits in a 13-1 trouncing of the San Francisco Giants.

It was a like a base-hit buffet. Abreu went 4-for-5 to raise his average to a nice round .300. His cycle was especially sweet: started with homer number 29 in the first, came back with a double in the third, singled in the seventh, and after painfully hitting a foul off his foot in the eighth, hit a ball in the gap that he was determined to stretch into a triple. Three RBIs in all that.

Abreu was the crowd favorite but it should be noted that in addition to Abreu's long shot, the Sox whacked five other homers. Four of those were off Giant starter Jeff Samardzija. You remember him -- he came here in 2015 along with Michael Ynoa (who?) in exchange for Josh Phegley and Marcus Semien (who and who?). He's tall and has great hair, but he wasn't fooling any Sox hitters tonight.

The many hits and the many runs got our attention, though a big part of the story was James Shields's one-run effort over seven innings. I've employed a lot of hyphenated terms watching him pitch the past couple seasons, but tonight he looked genuinely sharp. He allowed only two hits and delivered five strikeouts. If this is the Shields we were waiting for, I'm glad he showed up.

After three embarrassing errors the night before, this squad looked like an actual professional ball team tonight. This is what we've been told to expect as the South Side resconstruction ripens into a dynasty over the next several seasons. Inconsistency sprinkled with frustration is our lot in life, but it makes gonzo wins like this that much sweeter.

Gotta love those cool autumn nights. They seem to bring on hot bats.

Jose Abreu

Not just the three RBIs, not just the cycle, but just his determination to get that triple in the eighth.
