One of Those Days...

September 2 Vs. Boston


Today's temperature:
97
"Another frustrating loss for the Sox. Don't know how much Jerry is to blame for this one, but in the end, a loss is a loss is a loss..."

Short Take: Boston's two hits enough as Sox fail to give Big Bart any offensive support.

Some days it doesn't pay to be a Sox fan. No matter how well the team plays, they still lose. Sometimes one of your pitchers throws a gem, making only a couple of mistakes and yet still gets tagged with the loss. Some days your team hits 3 home-runs and all of them go just foul. This was one of those days. Actually, it was a night game and the Sox were facing Boston, another playoff contender that needs a big September to make the playoffs. The Red Sox weren't special tonight. They managed only 2 hits and gave up 3 long balls, but their two hits found the seats fair while the White Sox jacks all were just foul. The Sox managed to load the bases with one away in the first and only scored one run when Carl Everett's blooper found an empty space in between three Red Sox defenders. Unfortunately, Frank Thomas (on second) failed to get a good lead and was forced out at third pretty easily. Robbie Alomar managed to score on the play, but that was all she wrote for the inning and in the end, the game.

Not to say the Sox didn't have opportunities. They had a few. They got a lead off double from Carlos Lee in the third and another from Joe Crede in the 7th. They got a couple of runners on with two outs in the 5th. They got 4 free passes when players were hit by pitches and another one on a more traditional walk, but in the end, they couldn't solve John Burkett and the relievers who followed him, and Bartolo Colon was the victim of their failure. Colon was amazing tonight. He pitched a complete game giving up only two hits on 117 pitches. He worked up and down fast and slow and kept the Boston hitters off balance all night long. Unfortunately for him, the two hits left the yard and even though no one was on base at the time, the two runs were just enough for Boston to squeak out a win. The Sox go quietly into the night and leave their fans wondering what might have been...

No one really did much offensively in this game, though Paul Konerko, Everett and Lee all just missed home runs foul. Crede's double was simply scorched in the seventh, but he was left stranded when Lee hit into a double play to end the inning. Game two - the final one of the series is on Wednesday with Mark Buehrle facing off against Derek Lowe. Hopefully the Sox offense will manage to put a few more runs on the board, or if not, maybe BurlyMon will throw a shutout...
