Come Sale Away

mound meeting 1 - CopyIt is the final game in the series with the Cubs and Chris Sale makes his return to the office. I will address some thoughts about Chris in another post.

After the game the boys are off for a 3 game series in Minnesota before a much-needed day off and then will face the Tigers in Detroit

The boys are wearing the dirty grey aways today

Tim Anderson opens for the Sox with a single, Melky with a double getting Timmy home for a 1 to 0 Sox lead

Chris 1st pitch was a strike, lead off walk came back to bite Chris and it’s 1 all in the bottom of the 1st.

Just a half step faster and J.B would’ve been safe.

Once again the walk bites Chris and it’s 2 to 1 Cubs (also batter hit by Chris)

You can see that the suspension has hurt Chris in one way, took till the 4th inning to get his first strikeout. 1,2 3 bottom of 4th.

Chris Sale gets a rare single at the top of the 6th inning. Melky with a 2 out single gets Chris to second and Jose Abreu to the plate, who leaves the boys stranded.

Dioner Navarro walked int he top of the 7th with 2 outs and Carlos Sanchez at the plate.

Chris headed to the showers and flipped Nate Jones the keys on his way. Tyler Saladino now in at 2nd replacing Carlos Sanchez. Tyler with a double is the tying run.

You can see Adam Eaton’s frustration (E – 9) that is a rare occurrence. It is a 3 to 1 lead, Timmy had to make a choice to get the secure out and that was at first. Nate has given the office keys to Tommy Kahnle for the right to right matchup. Robin in the office to give instructions,giving Dan Jennings a chance to get ready to get the keys.

**FINAL Score, White Sox – 1 and Cub – 3

Series Split 2 games all
