It was not just a tough day for the Glendale Desert Dogs, but for all White Sox involved. Off the bat, the Scorpions jumped to a two-run lead in the first inning. It would eventually grow to 5-1 by the end of the third, as Glendale’s starter was pulled.
The deficit was too large for the Dogs to scrape back, as they would wind up losing, 5-3. Their bullpen did a great job, throwing scoreless ball and only allowing two hits.
Meanwhile, the White Sox, not so good. Basabe, Robert, and Rivera combined to go 0-for-11, with three strikeouts.
Robert got to 2-0 then was fed a bunch of offspeed he was out in front of. Here’s how it ended. pic.twitter.com/zdMHvdvsWn— Connor McKnight (@C1McKnight) November 10, 2018
In this ultimate small sample, Robert still seems to need work on off-speed pitches —shocking, right, with just 326 plate appearance in the White Sox organization. Robert’s 0-fer performance also meant the end to his 14 game hit streak.
That doesn’t mean we can’t watch this again, though!
