Shields Doesn't Yield, But Soria Does

May 1 at St. Louis Cardinals


WSI Playdate Funtime:
Chutes and Ladders
Shields was the ladder and the bullpen was the chutes

Short Take: Solid Shields holds Cards to 1 run, but Soria lets the birds walk off 3-2.

Another loss in the books for the 2018 rebuilding White Sox. This time they gave it up to one of those National League teams, the St. Louis Cardinals, with a 3-2 loss in the bottom of the ninth. Yes, the pen...again.

I’m not a James Shields fan. I admit it. But Shields pitched a heckuva game tonight. I might have rolled my eyes when he gave up a leadoff home run to Tommy Pham. But after that, he retired 15 consecutive hitters, and gave up only 1 more hit, walked none, and left with the lead.

Both Sox runs came in the 4th courtesy of Yoan “#bustwatch” Moncada, who hit a short fly that got by Dexter Fowler and allowed Trayce Thompson and Adam Engel to score.

However, a 1-run lead isn't enough. I have so little faith in the Sox blah-pen that I started writing up the game as a loss when Shields departed the game after the 6th.

The pen tried to immediately oblige me. Bruce Rondon gave up hard hits left and right in the 7th, and simply was the benefactor of a little luck and good defense by Jose Abreu, whose throw home on a sharp grounder kept the Cards from scoring. In the 8th, Nate Jones struggled with his control, but escaped unscathed after inducing a grounder-that led to a 5-3 double play, ending the inning.

Finally, “closer” Joakim Soria entered the 9th and left a changeup in Matt Carpenter’s wheelhouse to allow the Cards to tie the game. Although Soria struck out Jose Martinez, Marcell Ozuna just missed hitting one out of the park – it was a double off the right field wall. Then Yadier Molina followed up with another smash off the left wall to score Ozuna. Game over.

The Sox face the Cards tomorrow at 12:15 CST, Lucas Giolito vs. Carlos Martinez.

 I just can't have fun watching the bullpen throw away a good pitching performance. Grrrr.
