Sox at The Cell

1579608It’s the first game of this home stand against the Los Angeles Angels and I have two single words for you: Avi Garcia. I have two other words for you, Chris Sale

First: Chris Sale finally back on track in a much-needed positive outing. Chris went 7.1 innings, giving up 5 hits with only 2 runs allowed with 2 walks and 7 strike outs, faced 29 batters. Sale’s era now sits at 3.47. Nate Jones locked up the office for the win, allowing 1 hit and 1 strike out, facing 6 batters.

The 4th inning would see the first of 2 home runs by Avi with a solo shot to left center 435 feet, giving the Sox a 3 to 0 lead. 2 innings later Avi would do it again but with Jose Abreu and Melky Cabrera on base for a 6 to 0 lead.

The American League Central has gotten nuts to say the least, as of the writing of this , the Sox are 14.5 games out of first, (6.5 out of the wild card) We actually need help from Detroit to beat Kansas City so we can gain some ground. We have Detroit sitting 1 game ahead of us. Two more games with the Angels before it is the Cross Town Rival against the Scrubbies.

Updated Injury List: Emilio Bonifacio is still out with, left oblique strain and in on the list since July 29th, J.B Shuck with a left Hamstring strain, currently in therapy with a possible return of mid August. Daniel Webb is dealing with a back strain and there is no date for his return.
