Split Decision

May 15th vs Baltimore

"Rowand plays grinder with some smart baserunning, and Pablo Ozuna gets some playing time as a pinch runner in the 9th."

Short Take: Sox offense cold much like Chicago weather

For longtime White Sox fans, the Baltimore Orioles are always a sore subject. In 1983 after their incredible "Winning Ugly" regular season performance, the O's thumped the Sox in the playoffs, putting an end to their miraculous and fun season. Twenty-two years later, the AL-Eeast leading Orioles roll into town and put an end to the Sox 37-straight-games-with-a-lead streak, taking the finale of their four-game set with the White Sox 6-2 in front of a good but chilled crowd at US Cellular Field.

Offense today? Pretty much nonexistent. Leading off the game, Scott Podsednik drills a single. Thirty-four thousand people get all kinds of excited as they prepare for him to sneak his way around the bases...but he never got the chance, as Tadahito Iguchi grounds into a double play. Aaron Rowand hits a single, swipes second and then reaches third on a wild pitch. The Sox are 90 feet away from yet another first-inning lead...and Paul Konerko grounds out. One inning later, Joe Crede gets on, Iguchi hits into another 6-4-3. On and on it went until the seventh, when Jermaine Dye and Carl Everett belt back-to-back blasts for the only Sox tallies of the game.

Meanwhile, Sox starter Jose Contreras had to eat a tough loss today. In his first five innings of work, El Conde was cruising...aside from the two solo-shot gopher balls he served up to the previously-unheard-of Sal Fasano and David Newhan. In the sixth, trouble started brewing, and boiled over in a hurry. Jay Gibbons doubled, and scored on the next play as a member of the Sox crack security team fields a ball meant for Jermaine Dye. Jeff Fiorentino draws a walk, Contreras exits, Neal Cotts comes on. Disaster strkes and things turn into a blur. Cotts plunks Brian Roberts to lad the bases, David Newhan lifts a sac fly to score Fasano, Joe Crede muffs a grounder and Fiorentino comes home to score. The Sox home runs in the bottom of the frame were useless, as Luis Vizcaino struggles through the eighth and allows another run in the process. Podsednik gets on base to lead off the eighth, but Iguchi, Rowand and a very pissed off Paul Konerko all go down swinging.

Fresh off taking two out of three in the Baggie Dome, the Texas Rangers gallop into town for a three-game series at US Cellular. Orlando Hernandez gets the start tomorrow against Chan Ho Park at 7:05 PM.

Ozzieball Update:
 Glaring lack of smartball today. There were at least two great opportunities for sacrifices, but the Sox kept swinging for the long one.

Carl Everett

His brontosaurus-sized blast in the seventh accounted for half our offense.
