WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Long, painful night at USCF

August 16 v. Minnesota


How many Grinders did KW use today:

"Solid debut by Anderson; Perez, Iguchi and Everett account for bulk of the offense."

Short Take:Sox drop 5 hour, 16 inning affair and suffer first 4-game losing streak of season.

Freddy Garcia posted a solid effort and gave the Sox a chance to win, but Dustin Hermanson blew only his second save of the season in the 9th as the Sox went on to lose 9-4 in the longest game in USCF history. The Twins scored in the first inning on an RBI double by Joe Mauer. The Sox tied the game back up in the 4th inning, thanks to a nice piece of hitting by Tadahito Iguchi. After Timo Perez led off the 4th inning with a double, Iguchi hit an RBI single to the opposite field to tie the game at 1. The Sox had been held hitless up to that point by Twins starter Brad Radke, who retired the first 9 Sox hitters in order.

The score remained tied at 1 until the 6th inning. Garcia walked Mauer to start the inning, and Justin Morneau followed with a two-run homer to give Minnesota a 3-1 lead. Carl Everett homered in the bottom half of the 6th, a solo shot to cut the Twins lead to 3-2.

Brian Anderson, making his major league debut starting in right field tonight, got his first career hit off Radke with two outs in the bottom of the 7th inning. Juan Uribe had previously walked, and with two men on base Perez hit a two-out double to left center. Uribe and Anderson both scored on the play, giving the Sox a 4-3 lead and knocking Radke out of the game. The Sox held the lead until the top of the 9th inning, when Michael Cuddyer homered off Hermanson to tie the game at 4 and send it into extra innings.

The Sox were unable to generate much offense in the extra frames. They also exhausted their bullpen, using everyone available. One of the highlights of the bullpen was Bobby Jenks, who struck out 4 batters in 3 scoreless innings of work. Unfortunately, Jenks finally had to give way to Jon Adkins in the 16th inning, and the Twins took advantage. Adkins gave up 5 earned runs in the 16th, allowing 5 hits and two walks in the process. Twins closer Joe Nathan came in and struck out the side in order in the bottom of the 16th, as the Sox went quietly into the night.

Mark Buehrle (13-5, 2.99) tries to stop the bleeding tomorrow (tonight, actually) against Johan *Cy* Santana (11-6, 3.48) at 7:05 pm CDT.

Ozzieball Update:
Sox were shut out for final 9 innings of this one. Not good.
