Game Wrap Spring Training 2013: White Sox 6 Giants 2

Ryan Vogelsong got roughed up in his 4'th inning of work. Matt Cain worked out of the bullpen and the Giants offense seemed a bit listless in a loss to the Southsiders.  Key Lines:

Joaquin Arias- 1 for 3, HR(1).  BA= .267.

Brandon Belt- 1 for 3, 3B.  BA= .500.  If all Belt needs is confidence, he should be building up a ton of it this spring.

Brock Bond- 1 for 3.  BA= .500.  Bond also made some terrific plays in the field.  Once considered a defensive liability, Bond has sparkled in the field by all reports I've read from spring training.

Ryan Vogelsong- 3 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 3 K's.  ERA= 3.38.  Vogie allowed all of his runs, 2 of his hits and his only walk in the 4'th inning without retiring a batter.  He left the game with 1 run in and 2 runners on base.

Josh Osich- 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 0 K.  I think this was Osich's first appearance of the spring.  The hit he allowed was a 3 run dinger to DeWayne Wise which drove in Vogie's 2 runners.

Matt Cain- 3 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 6.43.  Cainer might not have been entirely comfortable coming out of the bullpen.  He allowed his 2 runs in his first inning of work before settling down.

George Kontos- 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 2.25.  Kontos would seem to be solidifying his roster spot.


  1. and now, here come the kids

    rest of the spring should be a lot of fun


  2. After pitching so well in 2012, I don't see how Kontos didn't have a spot except by totally blowing chunks. Mijares to me was the biggest questionable hold on a roster spot.
