Beef powers the win; Sox outlast Royals, 5-4

Beef powers the win; Sox outlast Royals, 5-4

After the game got off to a bad start for Ervin Santana, Welington Castillo and Tim Anderson lead the comeback Tonight’s game got off to an ominous start for Ervin Santana and the Sox, and the storyline looked like it would again be tragic— at least early. Santana opened up the game with a walk, but was bailed out with a double play. At the end of the first, after the Sox were sent down 1-2-3, Santana was hit hard in the second. Hunter Dozier started out the inning with a home run to left-center to take the 1-0 lead. A couple batters later, Chris Owings hit a home run to...

Boxberger blows another game, Royals fall to White Sox 5-4

Once again, it was the bullpen On the heels of a walk-off victory over Cleveland, the Royals hit the road for the second time this season. Stomping into the south side of Chicago to take on the White Sox, Kansas City was greeted by an old friend. 36-year-old Ervin Santana, who pitched for the Royals in 2013, took his 17.13 ERA in hopes of halting the win streak at three. For Kansas City, Heath Fillmyer took the mound in hopes of bouncing back after failing to work further than four innings last Wednesday against Seattle. Although Scott Barlow worked two solid innings of relief, Brad...

Game 16: Kansas City Royals vs. Chicago White Sox

Game 16: Kansas City Royals vs. Chicago White Sox

Happy Jackie Robinson Day! Kansas City Royals @ Chicago White Sox Heath Fillmyer (0-0, 15.00 ERA) vs. Ervin Santana (0-1, 17.18 ERA) First pitch- 7:10 CT Guaranteed Rate Field, Chicago, Illinois Declaring this a pivotal series for the Royals so early in the 2019 campaign would be a bit of an exaggeration. But just 15 games in and after suffering through ten straight losses, Kansas City has a chance to climb back into the running of the Central before we hit May. Coming off a three-game sweep over then front running Cleveland, the next three pitchers the Royals face have ERA’s of 17.18,...

The South Siders hope to keep their winning momentum going, as Ervin Santana looks to improve on his first start After a fun weekend on multiple levels, the Chicago White Sox come back home from New York for Jackie Robinson Day. Dear Jackie,How can we thank you? #Jackie42 pic.twitter.com/Lk3s74SdBA— Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) April 15, 2019 Speaking of Tim Anderson, he has been on fire this season. He leads all of baseball in batting average (.429), is sixth in wRC+ (203), and ninth in wOBA (.463). He has been nothing short of spectacular at the plate so far, though it has been...

Ervin Santana looks to get on track as the White Sox face the Royals

Ervin Santana had a rough outing last week in his White Sox debut. The right-hander looks to rebound Monday against the Royals. The teams begin a three-game series at 7:10 p.m. at Guaranteed Rate Field. Santana (0-1, 17.18 ERA) lasted only 3 2/3 innings on April 9 against the Rays. He allowed seven...

Ervin Santana inches closer to return — ‘Everything feels good’ — but White Sox still guarded

The South Siders are undefeated in spring! (which begins today) The vernal equinox comes less than two hours after this afternoon’s start, so unless Mark Buehrle shows up and pitches for both teams, this will be the first Chicago White Sox game ending in spring. Forget the dismal winter season and celebrate new hope and rebirth, and all that good stuff. The big rebirth Sox fans hope for today is that of Ervin Santana, starting his first official spring (or winter) game. Santana threw five innings in a B Game against the Padres Friday and did well, manhandling that Machado chump. More...
