Baseball is simple … to win the game score more runs than the other team. Since Sunday the Chicago White Sox haven’t doing that much, but the problem isn’t they are losing … that happens. The problem is just how bad they are losing, and how many runs they are allowing.
In their past four losses (three straight) White Sox pitching has allowed run totals of: 16, 16, 3 and 13 for a total of 48 runs in those four games.
The offense isn’t off the hook ether … in those four losses the offense of the White Sox has basically been nonexistent by scoring a total of seven runs, including one game where they were shutout.
If you mix in the one win the White Sox had this week on Monday (by a 5-3 score in 7 innings) in their past five games the “Good Guys” have been outscored 51-12 since Sunday.
This month the White Sox are 2-5 after seven games.
If August is truly the “dog days of summer” than that is ringing true for the White Sox thus far this month.
