White Sox and Twinkies at Target Field, Games 3 and 4

Chris Sale on the mound

Chris Sale on the mound

The White Sox gave Chris Sale the keys for Sundays game against the Twins, and with a 2 – 0 lead in the series the Sox where hoping for great things from the ace and they were not in any way shape or form disappointed. Going 8 full innings with 12 strike outs and dropping his ERA to 1.88. It would be up to the offence to complete the day. I was over the moon to see that they have come through with great support for Sale, who would pass off to Daniel Webb to lock up the office.

Robin Ventura  would send in for battle – Adam”Spanky” Eaton, Alexei “Missile”  Ramirez, Jose “Cannon” Abreu, Dayan”Tank” Viciedo, Paul”Captain” Konerko, Conor Gillaspie, Tyler “T-Flow” Flowers, Alejandro De Aza, Gordon”Bacon” Beckham. (My sorority sisters and I love our boys nicknames)

*Game Three, Sox – 7 and Twins – 0

Chris Sale against Logan Darnell

Gillaspie opened the scoring in the bottom of the second inning when, Gillaspie doubled to right, Flowers hit a single which got Gillaspie home but would up on second due to a throwing error by Santana of the Twins.

The Sox 1 – 0 lead changed to 2 – 0 when in the third inning, Eaton and Ramirez both reaching on singles to center and left respectively, Abreu’s sac fly scored Eaton and moved Ramirez to second, Viciedo lined out leaving Ramirez at second,

Sale kept the Twins bats quiet through four innings when at the top of the fifth, Ramirez with Beckham on the pond thanks to his double, unleashed a home run to left taking the score to 4 – 0 in the Sox favor.

The Sox would do the rest of the damage in the top of the sixth inning when, Konerko and Gillaspie would both reach the pond on singles, Flowers double would bring home Konerko and hold Gillaspie at third, A De Aza single to right would being home Gillaspie and keep Flowers at third, Beckham’s sacrifice fly to center would bring Flowers home for run number 7.

Sale would keep the Twins score less for the rest of the day, with the final score Sox – 7 and the Twins – 0. Another brilliant outing by Sale only all the Twins 5 hits for the day.

*Game Four, Twins – 4 and the Sox – 3

Scott Carroll against Yohan Pino

A four game sweep is what the Sox were hoping for today but it was not meant to be. Ronald Belisario who was on in relief  and was rattled by issues with the umpire was not able to hold the Twins who were able to sneak in and steal the win.

Things were all quiet until the Twins half of the third when, Escobar started things with a double to right, who came home on a triple  by Santana, giving the Twins a 1 – 0 lead.

It took til the top of the sixth inning for the Sox to get on the board, Beckham opened the inning with a double to left, Nieto sacrificed to the pitcher to get Beckham to third. With Eaton on first thanks to an infield single, Ramirez sacrifice fly brought Beckham home for a 1 all game, Abreu’s double to deep left saw the fast-moving Eaton home for a Sox 2 – 1 lead.

The bottom of the seventh would see the Twins take the lead,  Parmelee singled to left, moving  Willingham to second, who had reached on a walk. On a Belisario wild pitch saw both runners advance, Fryer walked to load the bases and Guerra took over the mound office.  Santana’s sacrifice fly to center, got  Willingham home for a 2 all ball game,Parmelee to third, Fryer to second.  Fuld single to center, brought  Parmelee and Fryer home for a Twins 4 – 2 lead. Fuld was  thrown out at second trying to stretch the play.

The top of the eighth inning would see the Sox take a run at trying to putt out a win when Adrian Nieto would unload his first major league home run to left field to cut the Twins lead to 4 – 3. The Twins pitching and defense would shutdown the Sox taking away the sweep that they were looking for.

Monday is a day off before the Sox pack up and head up to Detroit for a three game series, with Jose Quintana,  Hector Noesi and John Danks listed as the pitching staff

The recent update of the Disabled list has some good news for Avisail Garcia who is listed to start a rehab assignment soon, Nate Jones continues recovery from back surgery and is throwing on flat ground.

Danks would only make it to the middle of the fifth inning before the new kid in the bullpen Taylor Thompson would get the ball. Webb, Surkamp and Guerra who would get the closures nod for tonight. The Astros would need help from Downs, Veras, Sipp, Fields and Closer Qualls to get the win on the mound for Houston.

The rest of the run damage would come in innings five, six and seven, with the Astros adding three in the fifth with a Matt Dominguez home run, with Hernandez on board, Grossman’s single to center would bring two more home taking the Astros lead to 7 to 3 at that point.
