Twins 13, White Sox 2: Everybody was awful

John Danks takes the loss, but three errors and multiple baserunning issues assist in the cause The White Sox beat the Rangers in two out of three games with a run-prevention game that was close to airtight. In the opener of this nine-game road trip, John Danks and the White Sox defense made up for lost time. Not to mention the offense ran into 2½ outs on the basepaths. Basically, this is the kind of game that will result in changes over the next month. Danks sucked: With Erik Johnson doing all he can in Charlotte to claim a rotation spot, Danks should be out of chances (unless they want...

Recap: Twins Tag Danks and Buxton Impresses In 13-2 Win

John Danks pitched the way they thought he would... Coming into Monday's start, John Danks owned a career ERA of 5.67 against the Twins in 28 career starts. He's been especially horrid at Target Field with an ERA of 7.92. With runs being hard to come by for the Twins during this month, it was exactly what the doctor ordered as Minnesota exploded for 13 runs on 15 hits in the 13-2 route over the disappointing White Sox. Byron Buxton was also moved to the lead off spot tongiht, after battling last in the order through his first week in the big leagues. After collecting just three hits...

Rays 7, White Sox 5: Defense undermines winning streak

Several miscues make life more difficult for John Danks and the bullpen After a heartening three-game sweep of the Houston Astros, the White Sox hit the road and forgot how to play baseball again. John Danks didn't pitch as poorly as his line. He gave up five runs on eight hits and a walk over 5⅓ innings, but only one of those hits went for extra bases (a Nick Franklin double). A leadoff walk in the third inning put him in trouble, and three singles led to a 2-0 Tampa Bay lead, but the rest was more attributable to bad luck. Take the fifth inning, for instance. The Sox had just tied it up...

Tigers 7, White Sox 1: John Danks hits fifth-inning wall

Five-run frame for Detroit is more than enough for David Price This game went as well as you'd think a John Danks-David Price matchup would.  It just took a little time to arrive at its conclusion. Coming off a shutout, Danks tacked on four more scoreless innings to start this one, but he unraveled in a fifth inning that he couldn't even finish. At about the same time, David Price tightened up his game and put it on lockdown, going the distance with 11 strikeouts. Price looked vulnerable early, with the White Sox taking good swings against him, but some of that solid contact couldn't find...

Detroit Tigers lineup: Ian Kinsler has solid numbers vs. John Danks; Josh Wilson gets another start

Detroit Tigers lineup: Ian Kinsler has solid numbers vs. John Danks; Josh Wilson gets another start

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is going with the same lineup against Danks as he used Friday night against left-hander Jose Quintana. CHICAGO -- If Ian Kinsler is going to break out of his slump, now would be an opportune time to do so. Kinsler is 6 for 50 (.120) with two RBIs and four runs scored in his past 13 games for the Detroit Tigers, but he has had plenty of success in the past against Chicago White Sox left-hander John Danks. Kinsler is hitting .341 (14 for 41) with four doubles, four home runs and five RBIs in his career against Danks, who starts tonight...

White Sox 6, Astros 0: John Danks goes the distance

First shutout by a Sox pitcher in 2015 is his first shutout since 2011 Even if you're relatively supportive of John Danks -- understanding that most teams have worse as a fifth starter -- you wouldn't have picked him to throw the first shutout by a White Sox pitcher this season ... on the road ... and against a divisional leader. Danks hadn't thrown a shutout since his last outing of the 2011 season, when he blanked the Mariners on the strength of 10 strikeouts. Today, the only "10" was in the hit column, and that's even rarer. You have to go back to Aug. 3, 2004, when Carlos Silva shut out...

White Sox, Danks stymie Astros in series finale

The lowly White Sox pounced on Roberto Hernandez to beat the Astros 6-0 before a crowd of 27,423. Despite giving up 10 hits, Chicago lefthander John Danks threw a shutout with the help of some questionable […]
