Here Come the Blue Jays

carlosBack home for a 3 game series with Toronto before a day off on Monday. Carlos Rodon is in the office today. Jose Abreu is getting a much-needed day off to rest.

Carlos had a couple of really crappy starts forcing Robin to the bullpen early, his very last outing was a solid start and I have my fingers crossed that can happen today.

Rodon gets the 1st batter of the night to strike out.

Melky with a single to open the Sox hitting in the bottom of the 1st.

Carlos has 3 strikeouts in 5 batters.

RBI single has the Jay’s opening the scoring 1 to 0. Carlos got himself out of the inning and was able to limit the damage. Rodon is finding the strike zone better today.

Alex Avila with a single, he was due for a hit, Brett Lawrie with a single and J.B Shuck at the plate, they got the force at 2nd, he’s not happy but just the 1 out.

Double #17 for Melky this season in the home half of the 3rd.

Carlos has a 1,2,3 inning at the top of the 4th. Alex with a walk, gets moved to 2nd on a Brett Lawrie single. J.B got the runners moved to 2nd and 3rd. Avi gets the job done getting Alex home for a 1 all game.

Carlos with 7 strikeouts through 5 innings of work. Melky with a screamer to right to give the Sox the lead 2 to 1. Todd Frazier with a 2 out single to keep the rally going. Todd safe at 2nd with a steal.

Carlos getting into some control issues, Matt Albers up and getting ready in the bullpen. Top of 6th and the Jay’s tie the score at 2. At 115 pitches, Carlos is done for the night passing the office keys to Matt Albers.

Nate Jones has taken up residence in the office to start the 7th inning

Tim Anderson with a much-needed double (5th of the season)  to open the home half of the 7th, Todd’s single gets Tim home for a 3 to 2 Sox lead.

Top of 8th and Zack Duke with the office keys. Zack with 2 strikeouts in the inning, Avi Garcia on with a a 2 out single. A Blue Jay’s balk sends Avi to 2nd, Tyler Saladino hit by a pitch.

David Robertson in to save this game and shut it down, Thank you Robin for sticking up for Robbie and the boys.(Jay’s manager tossed out) Review at 3rd, did Tyler get the baserunner? Call was safe, Bases loaded and Robbie gets the much needed strike out for 2 outs. With the final pitch of the game, Robbie gets himself out of a huge jam to win the game.

**Final Score – White Sox 3 and Blue Jay’s – 2

In the office tomorrow is Miguel Gonzalez
