Weird second inning ruins Sox lefty John Danks’ outing

SEATTLE — One funky inning, the second, cost John Danks in the White Sox’ 4-2 loss Sunday to the Mariners. He was better than he has been recently but not quite good enough to get the Sox a split of the four-game series. “I thought he threw the ball extremely well,’’ said catcher Tyler Flowers, who hit his ninth homer leading off the eighth inning. “It’s almost hard to believe everything that happened in that inning. It wasn’t that bad of a pitch to...

John Danks' progress stalls after rough start to second half

Four difficult outings put his 2014 season in line with last year's numbers John Danks threw his worst start of 2014 against the Texas Rangers on Tuesday, but even though he failed to complete the fifth inning, he still lasted long enough to eclipse his innings total from the previous season. That should be great news, because it's still only the first week of August. He's still on pace to approach 200 innings, which would be quite the accomplishment after capsule surgery. It's a difficult time to celebrate, though. Danks finished the first half with a 3.99 ERA, but forfeited the first-half...

Rangers 3, White Sox 1: No support for Chris Sale

Dayan Viciedo's solo shot prevents Sox from suffered second straight shutout It looks like the dog days of summer have officially arrived. After suffering the worst loss of the 2014 season on Tuesday night, the White Sox followed it up with an equally listless perfromance this afternoon. The only difference was that Chris Sale pitched instead of John Danks, but that swap could not bridge the gap. In fact, two mistakes in the second inning sunk proved too costly for his teammates. He started the inning by clipping J.P. Arencibia with a 2-2 slider, then grooved a 2-2 fastball to Adam Rosales,...

Danks starts, Dunn finishes as White Sox routed

CHICAGO – John Danks set the tone for a miserable night of White Sox pitching that concluded with Adam Dunn taking the mound in the ninth.

Rangers 16, White Sox 0: Adam Dunn pitched

Colby Lewis tossed a shutout, while John Danks did not Adam Dunn pitched. What were the circumstances that led to Adam Dunn pitching? Well ... The White Sox fell behind 3-0 in the time it took to read "the White Sox fell behind 3-0." John Danks had nothing from the get-go, and was knocked out after giving up four homers over 4⅔ innings. The other numbers in his line were ugly, too (eight hits, nine runs, five walks). Colby Lewis was never challenged during his six-hit shutout. He gave up a few deepish fly balls, but only one White Sox reached third base all night, and that was with two...

John Danks pounded in White Sox’ 16-0 loss to Rangers

Since paring his ERA to 3.99 on the day before the All-Star break, White Sox left-hander John Danks has seen all that hard work go out the window. Danks had allowed seven, four and four runs in his three previous starts before the Texas Rangers  really got him good by lighting him up for nine runs and four home runs in the Sox’ 16-0 loss Tuesday at U.S. Cellular Field. Things were so out of hand that Sox slugger Adam Dunn pitched the ninth inning, allowing a run,...

Danks rocked, makes no excuses

CHICAGO – First it was the bullpen, now it is the rotation, in a humbling three-day span that saw the Chicago White Sox get crushed twice. As it turned out, Monday’s torrential rains were the highlight. That was bookended by an avalanche Sunday when the Minnesota Twins scored 16 runs, and another Tuesday when the Texas Rangers rolled to a 16-0 victory. Manager Robin Ventura hasn’t even sorted out the bullpen from Sunday’s mess and now he has a suddenly adrift John Danks on his hands.

Sox bullpen gets the break it needed

CHICAGO – Rain fell in buckets Monday, giving the Chicago White Sox bullpen a symbolic cleansing following a filthy performance Sunday. A 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers, called after 6½ innings because of a downpour, meant that the bullpen only had to sit back and do some soul searching. The relievers will have to take the mound soon enough, most likely Tuesday in support of starter John Danks, but there was no work Monday a day after they were bruised and battered in giving up 15 runs on 18 hits over four innings against the Minnesota Twins.
