    Just wasn't our night. Salvage a split tomorrow.

    We hit some long....just not long enough. I hate losing to the Royals, period!

      The Royals are once again going back to their ways of making life miserable for the Sox.

      Still have a shot for a split if Cease pitches well.

      Offense has been handcuffed the past three games.

        The three run homer that Santana hit looked like an out off the bat. That’s three homers that have been gotten a lot of help from the wind

          Perez had the three run home run, even Rodon was shocked that he even swung at that ball.

            Minor has now beaten the Sox twice* since 2020, something no other left-handed starter in MLB can say. Flashbacks to the era where we just added "Cy" to the name of any Royals starter because they all shut down the Sox every start.

            * yes I realize one of those was technically a no-decision, but the Royals won the game

              The good news (aside from Rodon's free-agent value taking a hit) is that Abreu swung the bat well tonight after Friday's injury.

              Rodon didn't pitch well tonight. He gave up some two-strike hits that hurt him, and the Royals ramped up their offensive pressure, something White Sox hitters weren't able to reciprocate.

              I wonder if there was any sort of a letdown after sweeping the Twins. Following the Twins series with a split pair of seven-inning games, with the Abreu injury coming just after he gave the Sox a 1-0, has to feel out of sync. Did they really lose the game on the next pitch after Abreu came out of the game?

              The Sox head to Minnesota for three more against the Twins before a weekend series in New York. Sunday would be a nice time to get back on track.

                Rodon got squeezed badly by the home plate umpire’s wildly erratic strike zone.

                Someone who didn’t watch the game wouldn’t have seen this, as it is isn’t reflected in the box scores.

                  The Sox have not played well since MLB made them wear those godawful caps.

                    It is what it is. The team is half injured and half underperforming and we still have the 2nd best record in baseball after Boston.

                      The 1.27 runs worth of difference in this case doesn’t even reflect that after several of these horribly blown calls, KC got the wind-aided 3-run homer.

                        I didn't watch the game, but the first hitter of the game doubled on a 1-1 pitch from Rodon, and Rodon gave up the crucial 3-run homer on a 1-2 pitch. I know it's upsetting when you see your pitcher not getting close pitches, but it wasn't simply a matter of Rodon getting squeezed.

                          The ump flat blew several pitches at least one of which was right down the middle. One of those calls made the count 3-1 instead of 2-2. Batter ended up walking and scoring.
