‘Just A Brutal Day’: Chicago White Sox Close Homestand With A Lopsided 21-5 Loss To The Houston Astros, Settling For A 4-Game Split

The Chicago White Sox had an opportunity to inch closer to first place ahead of a big series against the division-leading Guardians in Cleveland.

Instead, they closed out a homestand with a clunker Thursday against the Houston Astros.

The Sox surrendered four home runs, including two two-run homers to Alex Bregman, in a lopsided 21-5 loss in front of 24,407 at Guaranteed Rate Field.

A series that began with a pair of thrilling wins for the Sox ended with a thud. The 21 runs are the most the team has allowed in a game this season and the most in the history of the ballpark.

“Just a brutal day,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said.

The Sox also surrendered a season-high 25 hits and had to settle for a split of the four-game series.

“Disappointing,” La Russa said of the split. “We were up two (in the series) and (Thursday), you think the fans had a tough time? That’s tough to take for all of us. That’s a brutal afternoon.

“(Wednesday’s) game, we had a chance and we didn’t get it (losing 3-2). Be thankful for the two but when you win the first two you want more. We have to stay hungry and we were (Wednesday) but (Thursday) it got away early.”

The Sox fell 2½ games behind the idle Guardians in the American League Central. The teams begin a three-game series Friday at Progressive Field.

“Obviously I didn’t do my job,” Sox starter Lucas Giolito said. “It was pretty terrible. (Friday’s) a new series, important series. You just forget about (Thursday) and get after it.”

It’s the seventh time in franchise history the Sox allowed at least 21 runs in a game and the first since Aug. 30, 1970, against the Boston Red Sox, when they also gave up 21 runs. The runs allowed were tied for the second most in Sox history, one shy of the club record of 22 set on July 26, 1931, at the New York Yankees.

It’s also the seventh time in team history that the Sox allowed at least 25 hits in a game, the first since Aug. 31, 1974, against the Yankees when they also gave up 25 and one shy of the franchise record set on June 20, 1932, against the Philadelphia Athletics.

“It just wasn’t a good day for the White Sox, but in this game it’s one day,” La Russa said. “We split with those guys who are really good, and now let’s take care of business in Cleveland.”

Giolito didn’t make it out of the fourth, allowing seven runs on eight hits with five strikeouts and a walk in three-plus innings. He allowed 15 runs in eight-plus innings in his two starts against the Astros this season.

“I didn’t think my stuff was very good either, but (I) missed locations and they hit it hard,” Giolito said. “That’s generally the story of how it went.”

He gave up a solo homer to Trey Mancini in the second. Bregman drove in two with a two-out double in the third and scored on a Kyle Tucker single on a ball that went off the glove off a leaping Romy Gonzalez at shortstop.

“He’s as responsible as any starter we’ve got,” La Russa said. “He knows he has to get deep into the game. It was cruel when he strikes out (Yordan) Alvarez (for the second out in the third) and then three runs later couldn’t get the third out. They got a lot of two-out runs against us.”

Giolito faced three batters in the fourth, allowing a double and two singles.

“You take the ball 30-some times and you are going to have a day where it just doesn’t work,” La Russa said. “That was (Thursday). For him, when you have an offense like that, it makes you pay early and often.”

The Astros scored six in the fourth, with two coming on a Bregman homer against reliever Vince Velasquez.

Bregman hit another two-run homer against Velasquez in the sixth and finished with six RBIs.

The Astros scored four in the eighth against reliever José Ruiz and four more in the ninth against position player Josh Harrison. The 25 hits matched a franchise record for the Astros, who last accomplished the feat Aug. 10, 2019, at Baltimore.

“I think guys did a really good job of not giving any at-bats away,” Bregman said. “It’s August, it’s late in the year, but the guys’ focus was good. We swung at good pitches, and I was proud of our at-bats as a unit.”

While it was a deflating day for the Sox, Yoán Moncada wrapped up a productive series with a three-run homer in the fifth. The third baseman had seven RBIs in the four games, including driving in the go-ahead runs Monday and Tuesday.

The Sox went 5-2 on the homestand, winning the first five before dropping two. Now the focus shifts to the Guardians, who hold an 8-5 edge in the season series.

“(If) we would have won 25-5, we would have had to move on,” La Russa said when asked about the steps to bouncing back after Thursday’s blowout. “You get beat, there’s a lot of people upset in that clubhouse. It wasn’t fun. It was tough.

“They beat us up. They deserve the credit. We take the heat. That’s what I’m doing now before turning the page on to Cleveland.”

Dallas Apartment Complex Evacuated After Carbon Monoxide Leak

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – An apartment complex was evacuated Thursday night due to a carbon monoxide leak.

Dallas Fire-Rescue responded to the call at Radius on Turtle Creek Apartments, located at 3604 Cedar Springs Road, at 7:17 p.m.

Firefighters noted high carbon monoxide readings on the first floor of the building, including the underground parking lot, Dallas Fire-Rescue said.

The exposure was determined to have been caused by three workers using a gas-powered pressure washer in the underground parking lot without adequate ventilation. The gas escaped above, in the 5-storey building, causing the temporary evacuation of all residents.

The three workers were taken to a local hospital under undisclosed conditions. Firefighters used positive pressure ventilation with multiple fans to evacuate gas from the building before residents returned.

Britain'S Dumbest Energy Policy - Wsj

Britain’s ruling Tories have imposed appalling energy policies in recent years, but their capping of household energy bills deserves special mention. The regime was an economic loser, and now it is becoming a political loser in a way that illustrates the dangers when right-wing parties play soft socialism.

This cap is meant to limit household spending on electricity and natural gas, which most UK homes use for hot water and central heating. It is set twice a year by the industry regulator based on prevailing world energy prices. During the last adjustment, which took effect in April, households saw their energy bills jump by about 54%, and the increase in October is expected to be about as large.

Bitcoin technical analysis, bears still have the upper hand

Bitcoin Technical Analysis, Bears Still Have The Upper Hand

  • The formation of the bearish flag on the BTC/USD charts seems to continue, suggesting that the current BTCUSD uptrend may be coming to an end. The outlook for bears is more optimistic than for bulls. Long-term buyers waiting for a daily candle to close above $26,000 should enter or increase their positions at that time.
  • Some algorithms and traders may also draw an ascending channel on the daily timeframe as shown in the BTCUSD technical analysis video below. According to this ascending triangle, the price of bitcoin has already fallen.
  • The The $20,000 level remains a significant round number that BTCUSD can easily test in order to flush out the bulls who see it as a line in the sand and place halts around it. It is likely that the institutions that took the other side of the trade would prefer to keep the bulls out of a profitable rally.
  • Crypto bears always have a favorable reward/risk ratio, as a price target of $12,000 is not completely unrealistic. In terms of a more modest and fairly realistic scenario, Bitcoin’s price target of around $18,800 is still relevant for short traders (see why in minute 3:14 below). On the other hand, the bearish flag would be rendered ineffective if a daily candle closes above $26,000.

Simply put, I still think the bitcoin bears have the upper hand over the bulls at this point.

‘Minor’ bulging disc could keep Taijuan Walker off next start – The Denver Post

'Minor' Bulging Disc Could Keep Taijuan Walker Off Next Start - The Denver Post

ATLANTA — Mets right-handed pitcher Taijuan Walker, last seen pitching just two innings Tuesday night before leaving with back spasms, took some time during treatment to explain how he was feeling.

“Much better than expected,” he said. “Tuesday, I would say, was a lot, a lot of pain. One of the worst pains I’ve ever felt. So with where I am today, I’m a bit shocked.

Walker said his MRI revealed a bulge in one of his discs which he immediately declared “minor” and “nothing too concerning”.

“They use a lot of swear words,” Walker said of the team doctors. “I do not know.”

Walker played catch from 60 feet on Thursday, rolled on the elliptical and did what he called a “modified lower body workout.” He doesn’t know when he will kick off a bullpen, which according to his normal routine would have been on Thursday. He and the Mets aren’t fully committed to the idea of ​​him making his scheduled departure on Sunday, but they haven’t ruled him out either.

“We did a lot of treatments, a lot of exercises, just trying to stabilize the trunk and everything.”

The Mets have Chris Bassitt set to kick off Friday’s game against the Phillies, and the team opted to send him to Philadelphia ahead of Thursday’s game to avoid the potential situation of him arriving at the hotel in the wee hours of the morning. . After that it will be David Peterson and Trevor Williams in some order for Saturday’s doubleheader. Sunday being Walker’s day, the Mets are hoping he’s feeling good enough to pitch, otherwise it’s likely to be the rehab Tommy Hunter and a combination of relievers and minor league calls.

“It doesn’t really make sense to push him,” Walker said. “Obviously if I feel 100 per cent I’ll go there. I don’t want to go out 90 per cent and make it worse and then I’m in IL and miss two, three, four weeks.

Carlos Carrasco is already on IL 15 days with an oblique strain that should be a three to four week injury. For a team battling to stay atop the National League East, losing another starting pitcher for an extended period is a heartbreaking thought.

“I think it’s important to listen to my body,” Walker said. “At the end of the race and in the playoffs, that’s probably when I need me the most.”

A reporter also reminded Walker that he is 30 now – the tall right-hander celebrated the milestone on August 13 – and that minor back problems can become much more common at this age.

“The older we get, the more we have to stick to our routines,” Walker agreed. “We don’t want any more pushes.”

METS CLAIM YOLMER SANCHEZ

In today’s roster move, the Mets picked up infielder Yolmer Sanchez off waivers from the Boston Red Sox. In the corresponding move, receiver Patrick Mazeika was designated for the assignment.

Sanchez is a 30-year-old Venezuelan. His two main claims to fame are winning a Golden Glove as a second baseman for the White Sox in 2019 and leading the American League in triples in 2018. During his 44 plate appearances for the Red Sox this season he hit .108/.214/.108. The Mets expect him to join the Philadelphia team on Friday.

The switch hitter was once a regular White Sox contributor, appearing in more than 140 games each season from 2017 to 2019. Although he did his best defensive work at second base, Sanchez also recorded more than 1,600 innings. MLB at third base.

“Versatile player, switch hitters,” Buck Showalter assessed. “He can play a lot of positions and do a lot of things. It is really well regarded in many ways. We’ll see how it fits in.

Mazeika, who has been the team’s insurance policy at receiver, has hit .190 with a .515 OPS since debuting for the Mets in 2021. He now has seven days to be traded or claimed by another team on waivers . If none of that happens, the Mets can either release him or send him to the minor leagues.

LONG ROAD TO NIDO

Tomas Nido did not play at all during this series in Atlanta. He was placed on the injured reserve list with an illness, and although the Mets didn’t come out right away and said it was COVID-19, Showalter’s explanation of the travel plans for Nido basically confirms this.

“There’s a chance he’ll join us in Philadelphia,” Showalter updated. “I talked to him [Wednesday] and he was much better. I think he got back to New York yesterday. We can’t do anything else.

The trip from Atlanta’s Truist Park to Citi Field, probably the only option to get Nido away from the rest, takes about 14 hours.
