Orioles 6, White Sox 0: Short Sale, and nothing behind him

Chris Sale

I half-watched tonight's game at a bar. I had intended to watch more, but the Sox didn't really command the attention.

Here's what I saw:

I saw Chris Sale struggling to find a putaway pitch, which blew up on him in the ugliest of ways. He started the second inning with two out and nobody on, and ended up giving up three runs thanks to a single, two walks, and a Nick Markakis bases-clearing double out of Dewayne Wise's reach right of center.

I saw Lew Ford homer for the second straight game. He hadn't homered since 2007 before this series, in case you'd forgotten.

I saw Phil Humber start the fifth, which had me checking my phone, wondering he he'd limped off the mound or had any other perceptible injury. But Robin Ventura just didn't see a point in extending Sale with the Sox down 4-0. Sale threw 75 pitches over four innings, walking three on top of six hits.

I seldom saw the Sox at the plate afterward, so Ventura was right. They managed just two hits on the evening, and both were infield hits (corrected).

I saw Humber at least pitch well enough to save the rest of the bullpen.

I saw Jordan Danks end it with a double play.

Did I miss anything?
