M’s fail to make it FIVE series wins in-a-row. That’s Chicago for ya . . . .
The White Sox win this one with only TWO hits and the lone run of the game coming off a wild pitch. Seems it’s always been a tough place for the M’s, no matter the current state of either team
ON the MOUND
Tai had a rough go today . . .
Pretty lucky that he only gave up the ONE run ~ never a good sign when your starter has more walks than innings pitched. Here’s hoping he’s learning on the job . . .
FOUR innings ~ TWO hits ~ ONE earned run ~ FIVE walks ~ THREE strikeouts
} Dom with an awesome TWO inning outing = NO hits ~ ONE walk ~ THREE strikeouts
} Brandon continues his steller-ness from the pen, also w/TWO IP = NO hits ~ ONE walk ~ TWO strikeouts
AT the PLATE
As I’ve said far too many times in this section, move along, nothing to see here . . .
~ oh fer ELEVEN w/RISP – pretty much tells the story (thought the WS were oh fer FIVE )
~ lots of chances, zero capitalization
~ odd that FOUR of the FIVE hits (ALL singles) came from Dustin and Brad
IN the FIELD
Early on, the WS looked a bit like the keystone Cops in the field but, their late innings DEE was great (e.g., Eaton’s diving OF catch to rob Corey of an extra base hit in the 8th)
* NO DP’s from either side
* Robbie has a GREAT diving snare of a screaming line drive (#RightPlaceRightTime)
