Not one key hit

(August 30)

Short take:  Buehrle the victim.

The Sox wasted another wonderful pitching performance by their young staff and stumbled to a 3-1 loss to Phil Garner's pathetic Detroit Tigers ending the road trip filled with patsies on a sour note.  Their faint playoff hopes take another turn for the worse as Cleveland wins.  

Sox Fans want to know how much longer can they drag this out.  They'll have their chance facing the enemy this weekend.  They've never done much in any game that really mattered, have they?

Mark Buehrle took his normal turn in the rotation and will miss the four-game series versus Cleveland.  The Sox looked to sweep on the strength of his arm but it wasn't to be.  Buehrle gave up six hits and three runs and didn't even come close to winning this game.  How's that for pathetic?

The Sox were down 1-0 in the third inning when Jeff Liefer came to the plate with the bases loaded.  He grounded out to end the inning.

The Sox were down 2-0 in the fourth inning when Mark Johnson came to the plate with bases loaded.  He grounded into a double play to end the inning.

The Sox were down 3-1 in the eighth inning when Carlos Lee came to the plate with runners at first and second.  He grounded into a double play to end the inning.

The Sox grounded into three double plays and still managed to leave eight runners on base.  That's practically a physical impossiblity!

Ray Durham showed life at leadoff, 2 for 4 with a dinger.  Paul Konerko went 2 for 2, reaching base all four times he made a plate appearance.  Jerry Manuel's line up makes Nate Cornejo into the latest Joe "Cy" Mays to drive Sox Fans up a wall.

Better luck against Cleveland?  Suck it up and take it standing!

Mark Buehrle

Eight innings pitched, six hits and three runs allowed, he pitched well enough to win but not with tonight's Sox line up.
