earned Offensive Player of the Week honors after tying season highs for goals

19-12 loss to Colorado on Saturday. CLEVELAND —Their collapse complete, all
the White Sox could do was watch from afar as another team celebrated winning
the AL Central. This wasnt their year, but it wasnt supposed to be. Chicagos
comeback season came up short. “It hurts,” said designated hitter Adam Dunn. “It
stinks, but we have to look in the mirror and realize we did it to ourselves.”
Rookie Hector Santiago allowed just one hit in seven shutout innings to keep
Chicagos slim hopes alive for a while as the White Sox beat Cleveland 11-0
before they were eliminated from playoff contention when Detroit won the
division on Monday night. Santiago (4-1), who began the season as Chicagos
closer, struck out a season-high 10 and allowed only Shin-Soo Choos two-out
single in the third. With just their third win in 13 games, the second-place
White Sox left the field with some hope, but not much. About an hour after the
game, Chicago, which stumbled down the stretch after being in first place for 63
straight days, saw its chances vanish as the Tigers won 6-3 in Kansas City. “Its
always frustrating, but I told everyone we should walk out of here with our
heads held high,” White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski said. “Nobody thought we
would so anything this year, but to be in it until October 1st and have a
chance, we did everything we could. We dont have to look back and say we could
have done this or we could have done that because at the end of the day, we gave
everything we could and did everything we could possibly do. “We were in the
position we wanted to be in and it just didnt work out.” The White Sox scored
four runs in the sixth off Corey Kluber (2-5), and added six in the ninth—
four on Dayan Viciedos first career grand slam to make it 11-0. After lining up
and slapping high-fives in the infield, the White Sox headed to their clubhouse
aware that the Tigers were already leading the Royals by four runs. There was
nothing more Chicago could do. It was out of the White Soxs hands, and they ate
their postgame dinners and watched helplessly on TVs in the clubhouse—several
were tuned to the Chicago Bears Monday night game against the Dallas Cowboys—
as the Tigers wrapped up a second straight title. A season of promise under
first-year manager Robin Ventura had crumbled completely. “You end up where
youre supposed to end up,” Ventura said. “The effort was there. We just came up
short.” Santiago and Kluber were locked in a scoreless duel until the sixth,
when the White Sox scored four runs on five hits—four coming with two outs.
Dewayne Wise bunted safely with one out, and stole second with two outs before
Adam Dunn snapped an 0-for-18 slump by lining a base hit to centre. Brandon Weeden Youth Jersey. Kluber then
walked Paul Konerko before Alex Rios ripped an RBI double off the left-field
wall, scoring Dunn to make it 2-0 and forcing a pitching change. Pierzynski
followed with a grounder up the middle off reliever Joe Smith that went off
diving second baseman Jason Kipnis glove and into centre field as Konerko
scored. Viciedos single then scored Rios to give the White Sox a 4-0 lead and
chance to breathe a little easier. Santiago was never threatened by the Indians,
who managed just three baserunners off the left-hander. Cleveland did not get a
runner to second base off Santiago, who won for the first time in five starts.
Dunn added an RBI single in the ninth to make it 6-0. The White Sox didnt seem
to be feeling any pressure before the game. Players sat in front of their
lockers, tapping away at the screens of their iPads or watching TV as if it was
June 1 and not Oct. 1 with their season hanging by a thread. Chicagos players,
who had spent 117 total days in first place, seemed resigned to their fate. “If
it does become official, its a huge disappointment,” said starter Jake Peavy,
who is scheduled to start Tuesdays game. “We feel like we let one slip away. Its
extremely frustrating the way things have played out.” It was a monumental
collapse for the White Sox, who led the division by three games on Sept. 17.
Since then, theyre 4-10 and now have to hope the Royals can somehow sweep three
straight from the Tigers. As for the Indians, they dropped to 2-2 under interim
manager Sandy Alomar Jr., who hopes to become Clevelands permanent manager. “Itd
be great. Itd be awesome,” Alomar said before the game. “I played here many
years. Im very proud of this organization. They have treated me great. They
brought me back. If its the time, its their choice. If its the time, its time.
if not, there will be some other time.” Alomar took over last week when the
Indians fired Manny Acta with six games left. Alomar, who served Actas bench
coach this season, will likely interview with the Indians by the end of the
week. He and former Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona are the only
candidates confirmed so far by the club, which has tentatively set up a meeting
with Francona on Friday. NOTES: Pierzynski has 77 RBIs, matching a career-high.
... With his performance, Santiago helped Chicagos set a club record for
strikeouts in a season. The White Sox have fanned 1,225 batters, five more than
in 2011. ... Dunn has 220 strikeouts, three away from the major league record
set by Mark Reynolds with Arizona in 2009. ... Santiagos 10 strikeouts were the
most by a Chicago rookie since Jason Bere, who struck out 12 Angels on Sept. 20,
19093. ’ ’ ’
