Ritchie blows #15.

August 3 at Tampa Bay

Short Take:  Frank can't slide and Konerko can't throw, either.

Pre-Game Report

Inside
JERRY'S HEAD

Wasn't this loss simply predictable?  In a season where the Sox left April in first-place, left May trying to hang close, left June sinking like a stone, and left July dismantling the team, why should any of us be surprised they now can't beat Tampa Bay in August?

They were plain lucky last night, but made damned double-sure they lost this one, 6-2 in St. Pete.

Why did the Sox lose?  All the usual suspects, of course.

Slumping Paul Konerko takes his troubles out to the field, hitting a runner in the back on a throw.  His arm is supposed to be one of his strong suits.  That guy scored.

Royce Clayton can't go into the hole and throw out the batter, so the Devil Dogs take the lead in the first inning on an infield single.

Mark Johnson can't throw out a baserunner stealing second, and commits an error to send him to third base, too.  He was the first of six runs that scored in the third inning.

Todd Ritchie implodes like a rookie from the fielding gaffes, allowing five runs on four hits in the third inning.  That's loss #15 and he's a cinch to lose twenty by the end of the season unless the Sox cover for him like they did before the trade deadline claiming the turd had a stiff shoulder.  Yeah, sure...

Frank Thomas again (!) fails to slide on a play at the plate, tagged out as a result.  The Sox were lucky to salvage any runs in the inning--and avoid the shutout.

Carlos Lee, Paul Konerko, Frank Thomas, and Mark Johnson didn't have a hit between them.

This entire mess begs two questions, Sox Fans.

1.) How did Todd Ritchie ever win five games?
2.) How did the White Sox ever win 52?

Two innings of shutout relief.  One hit, two K's, no walks.  Nothing special except everybody else sucked.
