The White Sox are looking to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers, after losing back-to-back heartbreaking games, in true South Side fashion. They lost in extras on Friday, and blew the lead late in the game Saturday, which absolutely checks out.
And once again, there’s no Luis Robert Jr. in the lineup today. Back to our roots, with Gavin Sheets in right field.
Either way, happy Cease Day to all who celebrate.

Dylan Cease had a clean first, and the vibes are good (so far).

After a couple back-to-back singles in the top of the second, Mark Canha poked a sac fly out to right, scoring the first run for Milwaukee. This is still a fair assessment.

Checking in on the farm — Noah Schultz had another great day for the Low-A Cannon Ballers. He now sits at a 1.52 ERA over 23 2⁄3 innings!
Noah Schultz started the #Ballers Sunday game. He goes 3.1 and allows 1R unearned on 3H and 2BB. He strikes out 5 on 36/56. The run scored after he was out after a throwing E2 as an attempted CS at 2B went into CF. #WhiteSox pic.twitter.com/ZF9OHDZEDb— White Sox Daily (@dailywhitesox) August 13, 2023
The offense for both teams has been pretty nonexistent in the series, with five total hits through four. The White Sox actually have one more hit than the Brewers at this point, but can’t get a runner past first base.

At least the slider is slidin’ today.

Cease later hung a knuckle-curve down the middle and Andruw Monasterio ripped it down the left-field line to score the second run to make it 2-0. Cease would get out of the jam, forcing the Brewers to leave the runners stranded. White Sox fans know how that goes.
Two infield pop ups with runners on 2nd and 3rd is less than ideal...— Reviewing the Brew (@ReviewngTheBrew) August 13, 2023
Don’t worry, you still aren’t as big of a failure as Rick Hahn and the rest of the White Sox front office.
I lost the white Sox cap shuffle. I feel like I don't deserve to be at the game anymore after this failure.— Andrew Vaughn Gogh (@AllStarVaughn) August 13, 2023
The White Sox got a mini two-out rally cooking in the bottom of the fifth, with runners on first and second, but Yoán Moncada just can’t lay off that high fastball. Sources confirm that the Sox are riding the struggle bus.

The bats might be struggling, but Dylan Cease is having himself a pretty efficient day, despite getting zero run support.

Dylan Cease? Pitching in the 7th inning? Is this allowed?— Jack (@Jack2925_) August 13, 2023
Aaron Bummer came in for the eighth, and threw Dylan Cease’s quality start right down the toilet. A true vintage Bummer sequence: walk, walk, wild pitch (runners advance), and a Carlos Santana three-run bomb to cap it off.

I have been personally victimized by Aaron Bummer for too long now. He has got to go.— maddie (@maddie_spagnola) August 13, 2023
This was an interesting stat to learn, but he gives up runs in every other way so it just feels like he had given up one or four.
First home run allowed by Bummer all season, as @JRFegan just pointed out to me. Santana makes it 5-0 Brewers.— Scott Merkin (@scottmerkin) August 13, 2023
Brent Honeywell came in to relieve before Bummer could record an out.
Honeywell shut it down after that nonsense, but Declan Cronin had a tough time in the ninth, letting another couple of runs in after hitting a couple of batters and loading the bases.
After seven good innings from Cease, Sox’ relief has faltered and turned this into a rout. Bummer went walk, walk, homer in the eighth. Declan Cronin hit two and walked one to load the bases ahead of a two-run single. Sox trail 7-0.— Vinnie Duber (@VinnieDuber) August 13, 2023
They got out of it, but it feels like they can’t do anything normally, or make a clean out.
Even when they get an out the Sox are ridiculously chaotic— Liddle Tina (@liddle_ktina) August 13, 2023
Time to look away from the madness for a second to check in on an old friend. It appears Joe Kelly has caught the White Sox injury curse.

Alright who is ready for a seven-run rally?

The Good Guys waited until their final out of the game to put some runs on the board. Beginning with an RBI double from Carlos Pérez.

Elvis Andrus came through for another two RBIs. Are you saying there’s a chance?
White Sox lose, 7-3. There’s always this, I guess.
