Default *Official* 5/16/19 Squeezing the Life out of the Jays Postgamer

Covey did an admirable job, the bullpen was nails, and the bottom of the order came through in a big way with an 8th-inning rally.

Fun game to watch.

Default *OFFICIAL* 5-16-19 Nice Team Win Postgamer

All those replays going our way and of course the other one that we weren't allowed would have, but they wouldn't review Abreu in the 7th. Still Sox found a way to win as a team tonight. Small ball galore and a solid outing from Covey and the bullpen.

Two games under again, can they finally get over the hump?

I did not know this, but Benetti said the rule changed. Reviews after the initial challenge are only allowed in the 8th and 9th, not the 7th, 8th, and 9th.

Love, love, LOVE the squeeze in the 8th. Bottom of the order really came through tonight. And Covey pitched quite well.

Maybe, just maybe Renteria feels he can play for a go ahead run because has a closer that can shut down the opponent in a tight game.

Not a large sample size to work with, but Cordell was 2-for-2 on sacrifices this year. He has shown signs of being good at laying down bunts, and trading an out for the go-ahead run and a baserunner advancement is a no-brainer to get the game to Colomť.

That is not the type of bunt that stat lovers would object to seeing.

Sox are 20-22. After 42 games last season the Sox were 12-30.

I like Cordell (eventually as a 4th outfielder type)- he gets some big hits, a few big HRs in big late inning situations, can get a bunt down, and plays good defense.

I think it should be similar to football. If you win the first one you get another. I didn't know only one was allowed per game. I thought it was two but never paid much attention. Abreu was clearly safe which would have forced them to pitch to Yonder with the bases loaded and one away instead of walking Yonder and pitching to Castillo with the bases loaded and 2 away.

Rule could use tweaking.

Maddening that the one time they need the replay to overturn an incorrect call, and they canít use it, while they waste minutes on other calls that clearly are not close. Glad it didnít hurt us.

Loving the way Tilson and Cordell are playing. Keep it up, boys.

The White Sox lost their challenge on the Castillo strikeout.
