Bad Night Fox Sox In Chicago [VIDEO]
No other way to say it - a miserable Friday night in Chicago for the Boston Red Sox. At the end of the misery, a 6-1 loss to the lowly White Sox.
There was a two hour rain delay in the third inning.
The Red Sox players constantly complained about home plate umpire Will Little's strike zone. Xander Bogaerts got kicked out of the game for the first time in his career for arguing balls and strikes. Rick Porcello got kicked out for comments coming from the dugout.
Then there was the fact that two former Sox prospects helped the White Sox win.
Michael Kopech and Yoan Moncada were part of the Chis Sale trade. Kopech pitched two scoreless innings before the rain delay. Moncada had two hits including a home run.
Nathan Eovaldi gave up three runs in two innings. Reliever Tyler Thornburg gave up a late inning three-run homer. It was actually Drew Pomeranz who threw four shutout innings in the middle of the game.
On offense, the Sox could muster only five hits.
Boston now at 93-43. The Yankees pick up a game in the standings with a win Friday night.
The Red Sox and White Sox play again tonight at 7pm. Live coverage on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket.
