Full House Flop

April 17 at Oakland Athletics


WSI Playdate Funtime:
Poker
I hope this Sox team is bluffing.

Short Take: As trounce Sox 10-2 in front of chock-full Oakland Coliseum

This was a 50th anniversary game for the Oakland As, so in celebration, they gave away free tickets to this game. How nice of the White Sox to give the full stadium an eyeful of just how bad the 2018 team can be. The pitching sucked. The hitting mostly sucked. I guess the defense didn’t suck as much as it did last night – I missed that debacle, thank heavens.

The As tattooed Sox starter Miguel Gonzalez, especially in the 1st inning where they scored 5, and in the 4th, they got 2 more before chasing Gonzalez out of the game. Gonzalez was responsible for 8 of the As’ 10 runs. He was replaced by Hector Santiago, the long reliever who has been called into service way too often lately. Santiago allowed one of Gonzalez’ runners to score, but thereafter held the As scoreless for a few innings, as did Joakim Soria. But then Bruce Rondon allowed 2 more to score in the 7th. Where is that 10-run slaughter rule, anyway – at that point, I was ready to hit the hay (darn West Coast games).

The Sox scattered 8 hits over the game, against starter Trevor Cahill and the As bullpen. Yoan Moncada was the only Sox hitter who had any real success through 8 innings, with a single, a walk, and a 2-run homer in the 8th. And Nate Jones struck out the side in the 8th inning.

The Sox did muster a mild rally in the 9th off Lou Trivino, a righty making his major league debut. Nicky Delmonico singled; Yolmer Sanchez grounded out, but beat out the throw at first. Tim Anderson walked, and Leury Garcia singled. Omar Narvaez struck out. With the bases loaded and 2 out, Moncada took the count full, fouled off a few, and then struck out looking at a 3-2 curve ball right in the heart of the plate.

Nothing to see here, folks…move along.

Final game of this series is tomorrow at 2:35 pm; the Sox send Carson Fulmer to the mound and try (again) not to get swept.

 Um…the ’68 uniform throwbacks were kinda cool? That’s all I got.
