Default *OFFICIAL* 4.28.19 Postgamer.....A Sweep is a Sweep

2 game mini sweep but we'll take it.
Nice job by Lopez with 14Ks and the bullpen did their job too, Tigers wound up with 20Ks.
Now its payback time against the O's.

I suppose Lopez's performance is the sole bright spot for the rebuild today. Tim Anderson 0-for-4, Moncada with just one hit.

First of all they won based on a well pitched game by Lopez and the bullpen along with some timely hitting. Second, if we are just going to rely on 2 guys for our offense, it's going to be another long season, great hitters still fail almost 70% of the time.
BTW, before today's win the Sox were 3rd in the AL with a BA of .261, I know they've only played 24 games but it's been eons since the Sox have hit this well as a team, they are 7th both in OBP and OPS.

Sox needed some good pitching. And we got it.
The O has been holding its own.
The top 3 relievers are pretty solid. And they control them through next year (Fry longer) should they decide to keep them.

Beckham returned to the Beckham we know and love.

Although Beckham didn't look as bad as Anderson today after being the Friday night hero. Anderson's error might have cost Lopez an inning as well as an unearned run, although Renteria seems more intent on burning out his bullpen than stretching out his starters.

The game shouldn't have been as close as it was. The Sox should have scored more run, although they bottom of the order was able to push across a run in the eighth. Of course, the big two-out double in the first proved all the Sox would need. Still, if your starters on their best days are only going to go six, you're vulnerable to off days from even good bullpens.

Iím not sure how fielding percentage affects WAR, but Timís 6 errors cannot be helping out his. He continues to field short and medium hops with that fancy backhand and just whiff on the ball when there is no reason not to get in front of the grounder. Itís somewhat of a minor fundamental but Tim is too excellent of a fielder to continue to make boneheaded errors like that one.

Great pitching all around- Lopez and the bullpen looked good- especially Fry.

Abreu really heating up, nice bunt and sac fly by Leury and Yolmer to tack on the insurance runs.

Winning games is also part of the rebuild.

Exactly though some feel that tanking for draft picks is better. I'm for winning and getting rid of the culture of losing.

Moncada was one for three with a walk today. That's not a bad day, right?

I sure hope going .333/.400/.333 turns out to be a bad day throughout his career.

Lopez struck out 14. This was a good day for the rebuild.

Lol. Only one hit for Moncada. Maybe heís hiding an injury? And Anderson mired in an 0-4 slump. Hope he snaps out of it soon!

I guess Lopez was okay so thereís that.

Jace Fry had another good outing. He definitely is part of this rebuild IMO.

I'm just happy that Lopez' who had a brilliant game today wasn't hurt worse or perhaps lost it because of an unearned run.

Sox scored just enough before he left the game to ensure he wouldn't get screwed like Chris Sale did so many times. Sale would throw a two or three hitter, strike out 12 and lose 2-1 or something like that.

Jose is staying hot as well which is very good because Eloy is going to be on the shelf for awhile.
