All things considered, Lane Ramsey has had a nice season out of the bullpen for the White Sox. He entered Sunday with a 3.61 ERA and 51 strikeouts to 13 walks over 42⅓, spread out relatively evenly between three levels.
Charlotte’s been tougher on him than Birmingham and Winston-Salem, as one might expect, but it manifested itself in ignominious fashion on Sunday. Ramsey entered the ninth inning of a tie game against Norfolk and redefined the term “walk-off” by walking all four batters he faced, with 16 of his 20 pitches missing the zone.
- Yermín Mercedes went 0-for-3 with a sac fly and a strikeout.
- Jake Burger was 2-for-4 with a homer.
- Micker Adolfo homered and struck out thrice.
- Yolbert Sanchez grounded out in his first at-bat, then was replaced in the second inning.
- Carlos Pérez was 1-for-4 with a double.
- Yoelqui Céspedes wore the collar and silver sombrero.
- Lenyn Sosa went 2-for-4.
- Jose Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a walk, although he was caught stealing.
- Harvin Mendoza went 1-for-4.
- Caberea Weaver, 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.
- James Beard walked once and struck out thrice.
- Bryan Ramos struck out in both plate appearances.
- Chase Krogman went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout.
- DJ Gladney homered, walked and struck out.
- Matthew Thompson didn’t make it out of the first: 0.1 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 24 of 33 pitches for strikes.
