Let’s just say that the Trout-Ohtani punch is really, really cool

Let’s just say that the Trout-Ohtani punch is really, really cool

The Angels, led by the aforementioned, smack around the White Sox. Angels 12, White Sox 3 Shohei Ohtani is cool; there’s no doubting that. Yet there’s nothing in the world that matches Mike Trout when he goes out hunting prey, taking the bad ones until that poor pitcher is forced to come in the zone, and then the result is all but certain. Goodbye, baseball. And when the two hit back-to-back, like they did Saturday night, there will be some happy Angels fans. Twice, Trout worked the count full against James Shields, and twice, he demolished the baseball. No wind necessary!...

Walker’s walk-off stabs Sox, 5-4

New York needed just four outs to score five runs, stealing the game The hottest streak can be doused by just one small setback. That’s just what happened to the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday. In command of the game through seven innings behind James Shields’s strong start and Jace Fry’s dependable relief, the one-two punch of Juan Minaya and Dylan Covey couldn’t stave off a strong New York Yankees offense. Just as it was beginning to feel like the Sox would finish this game off, Minaya came into the game in the bottom of the eighth and things devolved very quickly. The righthander...

Bengals feast on Juego G, 7-2

Bengals feast on Juego G, 7-2

Shields pitches 6 2/3, coughs up seven earned; Ryan Burr chucks a spotless debut Overall, it wasn’t a very fun afternoon of baseball for the Chicago White Sox. The 7-3 loss to the Detroit Tigers was unmistakably marked by a usual suspect, James Shields. Shields employed his usual arsenal of grunts and glares to muscle through three low-hit, scoreless innings before two singles, a HBP, a ground-rule double and a sac fly scored two. If not for Shields orchestrating a clever pick-off of Nicholas Castellanos at third base with runners on second and third with no outs, the roof might have...
