Doubleheader Recap: Tigers drop two with bonus extra innings

Doubleheader Recap: Tigers drop two with bonus extra innings

The Detroit Tigers failed to take either game of the doubleheader in Chicago on Wednesday. Two games at Guaranteed Rate Field. Two starting pitchers making their major league debuts. Two losses. The White Sox sweep the doubleheader. Game One: White Sox 7, Tigers 5 Game one of today’s doubleheader saw the debut of White Sox prospect Dylan Cease. Cease is a very highly touted prospect — FanGraphs has Cease listed as their No. 49 prospect in baseball, while MLB Pipeline ranks him much higher, placing him as their No. 18 prospect. The crowd was, understandably, very excited about his...

Ross Detwiler looks to lead the Sox to a doubleheader sweep After Dylan Cease pitched five innings to secure a Game 1 victory in his major league debut, the Chicago White Sox will look to Ross Detwiler to secure the sweep for Game 2 of the doubleheader. (Can we give Cease another round of applause?) Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ Soaking it all in: Eloy Jiménez douses Dylan Cease in a Gatorade shower. (That works too! Thanks, Eloy!) In his first start in a White Sox uniform, Detwiler went five innings. He gave up two runs off of six hits, one of the home run variety....

Cease fires, White Sox win 7-5

Cease fires, White Sox win 7-5

South Siders survive stormy stretch in first inning, small-ball a W in the opener Despite a mountain of hype and the heavy status as This Year’s Rotation Savior, Dylan Cease settled down after a jittery end to his first major league frame, keying a 7-5 win over the Detroit Tigers in the opener of Wednesday’s doubleheader. Cease’s first major league pitch was a 97 mph fastball right down the middle, which JaCoby Jones was kind enough to loft for an easy fly to center. Christin Stewart worked the count to 2-2, then grounded to short, and about that time every Chicago White Sox fan was...

Gamethread (Game 1): Tigers at White Sox

Carpe Diem! (Cease the day!) The Jeopardy answer: Halley’s comet. The Rapture. Dylan Cease. The correct question: What are three long-awaited things of astronomical import? For many a Chicago White Sox fan, the list is in the wrong order. By all accounts, Cease is a kid with his head on his shoulders, his feet on the ground, and everything else properly arranged, which is critical, because otherwise all the hype would have swollen his head to the size of the Great Pumpkin. He could toss a 96-pitch perfect game this afternoon and still not live up to all the hoopla. Cease is making his...

Eloy’s broken-bat homer leads Sox to 3-1 win over Cubs

Eloy’s broken-bat homer leads Sox to 3-1 win over Cubs

Jose Quintana for Eloy Jimenez and Dylan Cease (smiley face) The beginning of the Sox-Cubs series had a promising feel to it. The White Sox got a leadoff single from Leury Garcia, followed by a Jose Abreu single and James McCann walk. Eloy Jimenez got his first shot to show something to his former team with the bases loaded. The result? A 5-4-3 double play to end the inning. It’s ok, though. He followed his next two at-bats with a single, walk and...a go-ahead two-run home run in the ninth inning off of Pedro Strop. Ok, cool. That’ll play. Jimenez broke his bat, but that didn’t...
