Short Take:  The offense shuts down after the 1st inning; not enough to support Schoeneweis.

Many people questioned the Sox decision to bring back Scott Schoeneweis for the 2004 campaign. And even more questioned the Sox sticking with Schoeneweis after a poor showing in Spring Training. But through his first 10 starts, the southpaw has proved many of his critics wrong and looked to do the same Saturday. Schoeneweis entered Saturday’s showdown with the Mariners sporting a 3.64 ERA with 5 wins. The Mariners countered with right hander Ryan Franklin who entered Saturday’s game with more wins against the White Sox over the past 3 years than against any other team. With the game taking place in pitcher friendly Safeco Field, this game looked to be a pitchers duel. Unfortunately, the results did not please Sox fans. The Sox, much like Smarty Jones, jumped out in the lead early but didn’t have the staying power to finish in the lead as they lost 4-2.

In the 1st inning the Sox looked like this would be the time that they would finally rock Ryan Franklin. Willie Harris led off the game with a walk. After a Juan Uribe pop up, Frank Thomas walked to put runners on 1st and 2nd. Carlos Lee continued to extend his career high hitting streak pushing it to 21 games. His first inning single scored Harris and left Thomas on 3rd. But Lee got thrown out trying to steal second a pitch before Jose Valentin doubled to score Thomas. The Sox finished the inning with a 2-0 lead. But Schoeneweis couldn’t maintain that lead for long. Ichiro walked to lead off the Mariners 1st inning and after moving over on a ground out to 2nd base, Ichiro scored on an Edgar Martinez double. The Mariners only got one, but that was good enough to cut the lead in half. Schoeneweis managed to find himself in several more jams before he left the game. In the 4th inning, a leadoff walk once again came back to haunt the Sox as the runner came around to score and tie the game. But the biggest shot came in the 5th inning. After John Olerud walked with one out, Bret Boone crushed a 2-run blast to left field to give the Mariners a 4-2 lead. The Sox couldn’t cut into the deficit.

The Sox had their chances though. In the 2nd the Sox had runners on 1st and 3rd with 2 outs but couldn’t score the runner from 3rd. In the third a leadoff walk to Frank Thomas was erased when Carlos Lee grounded into a double play. But the Sox biggest chance came in the 8th inning. Willie Harris and Juan Uribe walked to start the inning. But with no outs and the tying runners on base, the Sox couldn’t come through. Frank Thomas struck out looking and Carlos Lee lined out to left. After pinch hitter Aaron Rowand walked, Paul Konerko had a chance to do some big damage. Konerko worked a 2-0 count with the bases loaded. Konerko proceeded to take a get-me-over fastball for the 1st strike before swinging and popping up to 3rd to end the inning. In the 9th the Sox failed to score, losing the game 4-2.

The Sox will play one more game on the West Coast before coming home to start interleague play. Esteban Loaiza will start for the Sox against Jamie Moyer of the Mariners in the rubber game of this series. The nationally televised ESPN game starts at 7:05 CDT.

Ozzieball Update:
 Plenty of pinch hitting in the late innings to go with 2 caught stealings on the bases. There wasn't enough Ozzieball to score more than 2 runs in this game.
