Salazar Stops Chicago

  How many shutout innings does a pitcher need to pitch before fans finally stop being so negative? Especially the fans who get extremely upset when they lose a game and think the entire season is finished because of it.

  Salazar isn’t an ace, we know that. He’s still capable of throwing 6 scoreless innings and that’s what matters. You can argue that they won against the worst team. Sure you can. They’re not the worst team because of their hitting. If your pitchers aren’t doing their job, the White Sox can pack a pounding. Avisail Garcia is batting .303, Leury Garcia .298, Melky Cabrera .295, Jose Abreu .293, with a combined 198 RBIs. Salazar was able to keep those dangerous batters at bay until the 7th inning when he gave up the only 2 runs of the game. Any ace pitcher with common sense would be happy to have that type of an outing.

  Salazar’s performance comes at a key time when the Indians are on a hot streak, giving them 8 consecutive wins. Corey Kluber takes the mound tomorrow looking for number 9.
