WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Schoe-tacular!

April 17th at Tampa Bay

"1 for 5 in today's game, but still hitting over .300"

Short Take:  Schoeneweis brilliant, and the offense finds some runs.

Coming off their first lackluster performance of the year (call it corpseball if you wish) there was a big question going into the second game against the Devil Rays. How would the Sox respond from this? Last year the Sox seemed to string together multiple poor performances in a row. But with Ozzie at the helm, there have been noticeable changes this year. This seemed to be one of them. The Sox responded back well after being shutout in the first game of the series. The offense lacked the pop, but they found a way to put across four runs. Normally, four runs might not allow you to win easily. But when you have an outing by a pitcher like the one Scott Schoeneweis provided, four runs is plenty. Schoeneweis finished up going 6 and 2/3 innings allowing 0 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks in the Sox 4-1 win. The offense, responding to their dismal performance on Friday night, put up another 10 hit game against Rays starter Victor Zambrano who entered the game as one of only two pitchers in baseball with 3 wins.

The lineup for this game featured Ozzie’s first real shakeup of the season. Joe Crede and Paul Konerko got a rest while Juan Uribe and Ross Gload replaced them at their respective positions. The move worked for Ozzie. Gload went 1 for 2 while being hit by a pitch twice and came around to score once. Uribe went 2 for 4, driving in two of the Sox runs. The Sox took the lead in the 2nd inning and never looked back. Frank Thomas walked, moved to third on a Gload single, and came around to score on a sacrifice fly by another sub, Timo Perez. In the 4th inning, another leadoff walk to Thomas led to more scoring. Carlos Lee singled and after Gload was hit by his first pitch of the night, the bases were loaded for Timo Perez. The result wasn’t what Sox fans hoped for, but when Perez grounded into a double play, it scored one run. Juan Uribe came up with the two out knock to score Lee and the Sox took a 3-0 lead. Meanwhile the only real trouble that Scott Schoeneweis found himself in during the first 6 innings came in the 1st. With one out, Schoeneweis allowed the next two batters to reach, but quickly erased them with a double play.

The next time Schoeneweis found himself in trouble was in the 7th inning. Schoeneweis had runners on 1st and 3rd with two outs when a Jose Valentin error cost him the chance to get out of the inning. A run scored on the error and Schoeneweis was done for the day. Cliff Politte relieved Schoeneweis and after walking the bases loaded, struck out Carl Crawford to end the inning. The Sox added another run in the top of the 8th inning when Uribe beat out a fielders choice. Politte would struggle in the 8th walking a batter, and hitting another, but Damaso Marte picked him up striking out Aubrey Huff and getting Jose Cruz Jr. to ground into a double play. This games 9th inning adventure featured a walk and a single before the tying run was brought to the plate with one out. Thankfully Marte got a fly out for the second out, and struck out Carl Crawford to end the game. Marte earned his first save of the year by pitching the last two innings of the game.

Esteban Loaiza will take to the hill in Tampa Bay tomorrow as the Sox look to win the rubber game of this series before heading back home to face the Yankees. Jeremi Gonzalez will throw for the Devil Rays for the 1:15 CDT start.
