"Sox threaten but can't score."

August 3 vs Blue Jays


How many Grinders did KW use today:

"Carl with a concorse shot, Konerko with the long ball, and Orlando Hernandez shuts the door after digging a hole."

Short Take:  El Duque settles in after a rough first inning, but the Sox can't score with RISP for the life of 'em tonight in this 4-3 loss.

Last night, the old Jon Garland made an appearance at The Cell. Tonight, you might have heard Gene Honda go "Sox fans... on your feet. For your 2004 Chicago White Sox"! That was the team that showed up tonight. El Duque didn't get a check swing call that lead to four runs in the first inning, after that, he would shut the Jays down, but the Sox bats couldn't get much going against Dave Bush.

With one out in the first inning. El Duque walked Reed Johnson. Johnson stole second base during Vernon Wells at bat who then struck out. Shea Hillenbrand would be hit by a pitch, but, Hillenbrand clearly had intent to swing at the ball when he couldn't hold his swing and went around on it. But, home plate umpire Bill Miller ruled for Hillenbrand to take his base. That would open the door for a 4-run Blue Jay first. Johnson then stole third base, and Hillenbrand stole second. Corey Koskie walked to load the bases and Greg Zaun doubled to clear the bases. Eric Hinske hit a RBI-single to score Koskie. The Sox would come up for the first time in a hole.

But, the Sox struck back. Carl Everett launched a 460ft. solo home run to the concourse in right field to make it a 4-1 Blue Jays lead. The theme of the night would then be apparent after the Everett home run. Paul Konerko and A.J. Pierzynski hit back to back singles putting runners on the corners for Jermaine Dye. But, Dye would ground out to end the inning.

El Duque came out in the second inning and pitched a 1-2-3 inning with getting help from a double play. Hernandez would pitch perfect frames from the third through the fifth innings. But the Sox were far from perfect.

In the third inning Tadahito Iguchi lead off with a double and advanced to third on a ground out. With one out Konerko and Pierzynski failed to bring in the run. In the forth inning, Jermaine Dye lead off with again a double, but Aaron Rowand, Joe Crede, and Juan Uribe couldn't even advance Dye to third. But, in the fifth the Sox come through. Paul Konerko hit a two run homer to cut the Blue Jay lead to 4-3.

Don't worry, theres more failure to score runners in scoring position. In the seventh, Iguchi and Everett drew back to back walks with two outs, they advanced 90 feet on a wild pitch by Vinnie Chulk. Konerko would ground out to end another scoring chance.

The Sox made one final attempt to come through in the eighth. Pierzynski and Rowand singled with one out. Joe Crede then followed with a pop up to first, and Geoff Blum came on to pinch hit for Juan Uribe and promptly struck out.

The Sox drop this one 4-3 to the Blue Jays. The Sox record falls to 69-37. There's no time to hang heads in shame. Tomorrows game time is at 1:05pm and our Sox will try and not be swept. Jose Contreras (6-6 4.58) will match up against Dustin McGowan who is making his second big league start. Yes, that means the Sox have never seen him before. If you can't make it out to The Cell the game can be seen on Comcast SportsNet.
