Floyd Can't Find Zone, Offense Picks Up Slack

New, comments

Gavin Floyd became just the 5th White Sox pitcher in my lifetime to earn a victory while walking 7 (or more) batters. Interestingly, Sox pitching had 5 such outings in May of '79, including back-to-back games.

Dewayne Wise's separated shoulder is bad enough to necessitate a DL trip, and not surprisingly, according to Joe Cowley -- not the one with the 7-walk no-hitter linked above -- Jerry Owens will get the call.
