Kipper Melts

(August 2)

Short take:  6-run third dooms Sox

What's wrong with Kip Wells?  Maybe he was hurt worst than anyone realized after getting hit by a pitch, but his recent outing have looked suspiciously like the timid Kip Wells Sox Fans came to know and loathe in 2000.  A six-run meltdown in the third inning dooms the Sox, 6-3 losers to Kansas City.  We just lost 2 of 3 to these punks.  Pathetic.

The whole game revolved around the third inning.  The lowly Royals batted around on the Sox en route to scoring six runs.  It was 4-0 and Kip Wells was chased before the Sox managed to get the first out!  Matt Ginter did an admirable job in relief, went five full innings allowing just three hits and one run.

Meanwhile Sox bats were in a deep slumber.  It wasn't until the seventh inning that they finally got it in gear, Jeff Liefer leading off the inning with a solo dinger.  Jose Valentin clubbed a two-run shot and the deficit was cut in half, 6-3.

That was the last of the rallies.  The Sox #3-#5 hitters (Magglio Ordonez, Jose Canseco, and Paul Konerko) were a combined 0 for 12 with 3 K's.  The Sox left seven runners on base.

Zzzzzz.... Zzzzzz... Zzzzzz...

Collected three of the Sox's seven hits batting in the #9 slot, scored once.  His batting average soars to .238.  Glad someone was hitting the ball!
