WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Oakland Woes Continue

September 15th at Oakland Athletics


How was the trophy defended today?

It wasn't

Short Take: Our beloved Sox couldn't capitalize on a loss by the Twins losing 4-2 to the A's in that crappy ballpark in Oakland.

As the season winds down, wins become more important. If it weren't for Jon Garland, we probably wouldn't be in the thick of a playoff race at this moment. Garland and the Sox were faced by their biggest nemisis Friday night--Oakland's crappy stadium. Unfortunately, our boys weren't able to come out with a win, dropping a 4-2 decision to the A's, which disallowed the Palehose a chance to pick up a game on Minnesota.

Things started off pretty decently, as Rob Makowiak hit an unexpected solo blast in the top of the third to give the Sox a short-lived 1-0 lead; but, then things turned rather disappointing.

In the bottom of that same frame, Mark Kotsay tripled in Marco Scutaro. The next inning, the A's added a couple more runs, which could easily have not scored. Jay Payton doubled on a ball hit to Makowiak that could have been caught, which sent Eric Chavez to third, who walked to lead off the inning. Chavez scored on a botched play in short right field, as a flat-footed Jermaine Dye could not get off a throw to knabb him at home. Payton would score on a sac fly by Marc Ellis. Oakland had built a 3-1 lead.

Our Sox got a run back on a sac fly by Dye in the sixth inning, which scored Juan Uribe. It's too bad that Oakland got back their two-run cushion in the bottom of the seventh, as Milton Bradley scored on a fielder's choice by Payton, which closed the scoring for the rest of the night.

Our Sox get back at it Saturday afternoon, as Javier Vazquez hopefully pitches a gem, leading our beloved to victory. Gametime is at 3:05 and can be seen on Fox Chicago. Let's go, go go White Sox! Chicago's proud of you!
