WOW what a difference 48 hours makes…..Wuz good world dis ya boi White Sox Real Talk checkin back in with a blog after a VERY VERY VERY disappointing 3 games against the Detroit Tigers. Yesterday after a perfect game from Mark Buerhle the White Sox got swept in the doubleheader to kick off the series. Today was definitely a must win, Gavin Floyd started today & gave up 2 runs early but was LIGHTS OUT after that going 6 more innings & giving up NO RUNS & looking fantastic.
Then A.J. started his very hot night (where he went 4 for 4) in the 2nd he got the White Sox 1st run with his 12 homer of the season.
Then in the 5th the Sox’s youngest guns Chris Getz & Gordon Beckham struck as Beckham scored Getz to tie the game at 2. Then our MVP of the season so far Scotty Pods gave us the lead with an RBI single. So fast foward to the 8th Bobby Jenks after blowing his last save comes in to get a 4 out save and cut the division lead back to 1 game. It started off well as he got Jose Guillen out with runners on the corners, then he gets the 1st out in the 9th but thats when it went all downhill as he gave up back to back hits and had runners on the corners with 1 out, so he then got Miguel Cabera to pop out then Bad Bobby showed up again……….
on a 2-2 count Curtis Granderson score the tying run on a JUST FAIR line drive to right field. Bobby then got the last out but the questions surrounding him will be even louder now as he blows his 4th save of the season, his 2nd in the last week.
Now after this happened I knew we were destined to lose this game and boy was I right. After Fernando Rodney shut us down in top of the 10th, D.J. Carrasco came out the pen & gave up the winning run on a bloop RBI single by Carlos Guillen.
Now we have dropped 3 in a row and are back to 3 games behind in the AL Central. That leads us to tommorow under the bright lights on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball where we will have to have another great outing from Clayton Richard(don’t know how realstic that is tho) and at least get one win before heading to hell on monday AKA The Metrodome. Now with the trading deadline approaching will Bobby Jenks be on the trading block???? will Halliday save the day if he comes in a trade???? will the back end of the bullpen get better??? will the White Sox offense wake up???? there are a lot more questions than answers on the Southside…..things are looking pretty bleak, But until next time I’m White Sox Real Talk….PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!
