Texas-Sized Thrashing

May 29th At Texas

"Uribe wakes up and cracks out 3 hits, and AJ belts a solo homer."

Short Take: Sox pounded by red-hot homer-happy Rangers

For the most part in this still-young season, life's been pretty good for the Chicago White Sox. The Southsiders have been sporting the mantle of "best record in baseball" since April, and even the national media has been forced to wake up and take notice. Unfortunately though, even the best teams in baseball go through slumps, and the Sox seem to be mired in one right now as they continue to struggle in road games vs the AL West. The Texas Rangers, owners of an 8-game winning streak and a lineup chock full of big boppers thrashed the Sox on a cloudy afternoon in Arlington, walking away with a 12-4 win.

Jon Garland got the start for the Sox today, looking to become the first major league hurler to reach nine wins. Coming off a tough loss in Anaheim last week, Sox fans hoped that Big Jon would rebound nicely. For 5 innings, he did. But then disaster struck, giving many Sox fans flashbacks to the headcase Jon days of 2002-2004. Working with a 3-1 lead, Garland gave up a leadoff single to David Delucci. Delucci moved to second on a Michael Young base hit, and then scored on a botched double play ball off the bat of Mark Teixeira. And then the hits just kept on coming. Alfonso Soriano singled Teixeira to third, Kevin Mench hits a moon shot, Rod Barajas smacks a 2-run double as the Rangers bat around and the Sox find themslves someplace they haven't been too often in 2005--down and down big.

Things only got worse as the game dragged on. Garland would give way to Neal Cotts, who gave up another run. But the Sox real death knell was delivered in the eighth inning, as deposed closer Shingo Takatsu was brought on for mop-up duty, but succeeded only in making the mess worse as he gave up four runs.

Meanwhile, the Sox just couldn't get anything going of of Chan Ho Park, who was hardly in command of his pitching arsenal today. The Sox stranded 11(!) runners on base over the course of the game. AJ Pierzyski hit a home run to open the fourth, followed by some timely hitting from Juan Uribe and Joe Crede...something we're not seeing much of at all these days. Uribe would single again in the eighth and score Aaron Rowand, but the rest of his mates just struggled to get men home all afternoon long.

After a long, strange and crummy road trip, the Sox return to US Cellular Monday afternoon for a 3:05 matchup against the Los Anaheim Angels. Mark Buehrle takes the hill against Jarrod Washburn looking to plays the role of stopper, but all eyes will be on Frank Thomas as he comes off the disabled list and plays his first game of the 2005 campaign in Sox pinstripes.
