White Sox’ Dylan Siege brings his A game – again – in latest debut vs Rangers

Arlington, Texas — In this topsy turvy White Sox season that seems to be going way out of the way of continued success whenever it seems to be headed in the right direction, Dylan Seas is the staff ace.

The pause never wavered. If you can’t remember the last time they had a bad start, that’s because it was a long time ago. May 24 against Boston when he conceded seven runs, to be exact.

Since then, Cease has given up four earned runs in 12 starts to the tune of 0.59 ERA. American League Pitcher of the Month in June and July, Seas made his debut against the Texas Rangers on an August Friday, starting an important road trip the night before trying to prop up his team after a loss.

“The biggest thing is that we have to bring up our A game a little bit more consistently,” Siege said this week. “We have a lot of days where one side of the ball will click and the other won’t. Really, everyone, we just have to focus, step up and have a little patience and show how much we want it.”

Struggle, somehow snatched up for the All-Star Game, took Friday’s game with an 11-4 record, 2.01 ERA and four-game winning streak, second in strikeouts per nine innings (12.42) and ERA and Finished third in strikeout (161).

“I’m just trying to do the same thing every start, really,” Close said. “The biggest thrust and focus for me is what I really have to execute. I try to say ‘Hey, what’s my focus today?’ I try to imagine it, try to focus on it. I think that’s probably where the consistency comes from. I just try to pick up the ball every day, get the pitches done, stay steady and be that kind of person. I am doing something that can be trusted.”

Siege had to make early adjustments against Rangers on Friday when his command dismissed him during the first innings, which included two walks by Adolis Garcia and an RBI single. After running into Marcus Semien with two outs and a runner in the other, Cies retired the next 13 batsmen and called it a night.

On 91 pitches, the struggle dragged on after six innings of a one-run ball, which reduced his ERA to 1.98. He scored three runs, scored five runs and hit two, both singles.

During the stretch, the Sox tied the game against Rangers starter Glen Otto in medium deep center on Sebi Zavala’s sacrificial fly and advanced to left center from Aloy Jimenez’s homer in the fourth.

The Sox had a chance to widen the margin when Yasmani Grendel led fifth with a double and Louis Robert with a single to sixth. But Grendel stayed as Josh Harrison got out, Zavala was dismissed and Tim Anderson – stopping a streak of five consecutive strikes – flew to the center. In the sixth, Robert moved to second with two outs when Andrew Vaughan hit a pitch but was dismissed by Yoan Moncada.
