Whiffing The Night Away

April 10th at Minnesota

"Ozuna gets his first start of the year and plays well, Iguchi and Everett grind out a pair of hits each. Sox fans might be ready to grind up Joe Crede after his boneheaded fielding though."

Short Take:  Sox squander early lead, go down swinging at hands of Santana.

After heading up to the Baggiedome and taking the first two games of their weekend set with the Minnesota Twins, it's understandable if the Sox were walking with a bit of a cocky swagger heading into tonight's nationally televised matchup. Unfortunately, the ESPN "jinx" and the black magic changeup of Johan Santana combined to knock the spring out of the Sox' step as the Twins walk away with a 5-2 win.

Tonight's match did tilt in favor of our Sox in the early going. Pablo Ozuna led the game off with a bunt single, and was promptly moved to third when the suddenly surging Tadahito Iguchi cracked a double into left field. Carl Everett (who has been spraying just about every pitch he sees) lifted a sacrifice fly to right to score Ozuna. In the second inning, it was Iguchi's turn to sacrifice as he brought home Juan Uribe to give the Sox a 2-0 lead. Mark Buerhle was cruising in the early going with less than stellar stuff, but then the Twins decided to to get pesky and Joe Crede decided to get stupid. Happy Lumberjack Matt LeCroy ripped a ball past Crede, who did a dreadful belly-flop excuse for a dive and flailed around on the turf as Luis Rivas sped home. The next batter Buehrle faced would be Torii Hunter, and all Sox fans gnash their teeth and look away whenever he's around. Sure enough, Hunter proved himself to be a Sox-killer yet again as he drilled Buehrle's offering into left field to give the Twinkies the lead. From then on, the demoralized Sox were overpowered by Santana, who fanned just about everyone in sight. Just when the Sox would get runners on, someone was bound to end up striking out.

But hey! Meatloaf says 2 outta 3 ain't bad, and we'll take what we can get when we play in enemy territory. The Sox head down to Cleveland for the Tribe's home opener tomorrow afternoon, with Freddy Garcia facing Kevin Millwood.

Ozzieball Update:
 Sacrifices worked great in the early going, leading to runs in the early going.
