Santana Won't Change His Evil Ways

September 17th...Chicago White Sox at Minnesota Twins


Sox Magic Number:
12
"We'll get by with a little help from the Royals."

Short Take: Johan Santana continues his evil ways, baffling Sox hitters all game long, recording a sad four-hit shutout.

To our beloved Sox' shagrin, Johan Santana proved once again why he is "so smooth." Former World Series sensation Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez was sent out to face last year's Cy Young winner and didn't even get out of the fourth inning, recording over 100 pitches in the process. This one sadly seemed over before it started. Little offense plus poor starting pitching sums up to a game of which most Sox fans I'm sure are now glad wasn't televised.

After both sides weren't able to dent the scoreboard through 3 1/2 innings, the bottom of the 4th inning turned ugly...FAST! Justin Morneau homered, batting in Lew Ford, who previously singled. After Terry Tiffee and Luis Rivas got back-to-back singles, Jason Tyner trippled both of them home. Fortunately, after El Duque was taken out in favor of Luis Vizcaino, no more runs crossed the plate, giving the Twins a 4-0 lead.

In what appeared to be an easy perfect game in the running for Santana, Aaron Rowand tarnished with a single in the next inning. Santana still got out of the inning not allowing another base runner. A couple innings later, Tadahito Iguchi led off with a walk but was sadly stranded as nobody was able to even advance him.

Michael Cuddyer homered in the bottom of the seventh, increasing the Minnesota lead to 5-0. To display how sadly this game played out, a bases loaded, nobody out situation in the top of the nineth inning produced zero runs. That 5-0 lead held up as the final score, and now our Palehose are in danger of having their divisional lead drop to under four games for the first time since April pending the outcome to tonight's Royals/Indians game's outcome. Here's hoping that the Sox can get back to winning tomorrow afternoon at 1:10 pm, as Jose Contreras, our best pitcher for the past couple of months, takes the mound. The game can be seen on Comcast Sports Net Chicago.

No offense is the most effective prevention mechanism for Ozzieball.
