All Quiet on the Sox' Offensive Front

May 4th at Los Angeles Angels

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Tainted Cat Food
Did the offense even care that there was a game going on tonight?

Short Take:Jose Contreras struggled early, while the Sox couldn't seem to get much offense going, as the Palehose went down in defeat for the fifth consecutive time.

For the second consecutive weekend, our beloved Palehose were set to begin a series with the "We Keep Changing Our City Name" Angels, as Jose Contreras and Kelvim Escobar were both set to take the bump. Angel bats early provided all that was necessary in a 5-1 victory over the Good Guys on a late Friday night affair.

The first couple of innings were rather ugly, as the Halos put up four quick runs. In the opening frame, Reggie Willits led off the game with a walk, stole second, advanced on a single by Orlando Cabrera, and came home on a sac fly by Gary Matthews Jr. The next stanza proved to be rather ugly, as Contreras just didn't have it defensively. Erick Aybar reached on a bunt single to Contreras, and then Shea Hillenbrand reached on a fielder's choice, where Contreras tried to throw Aybar out at second, but was wild with his throw, allowing Aybar to tread all the way to the Hot Corner, scoring on a double by Mike Napoli. After a couple outs were finally recorded, Cabrera singled in both Hillenbrand and Napoli. What a brutal start to the game this was!

The only thing that went offensively right for the Sox on this evening happened in the top of the third inning, as Jermaine Dye was able to double in Darin Erstad, who had previously singled. The 4-1 score in favor of the Halos lasted all the way until the bottom of the 8th inning, as Boone Logan allowed Gary Matthews to score on a Casey Kotchman single to left field, which closed the scoring in the game.

And, so, the losing streak for our beloved White Sox has reached a head-turning five games. Fortunately, there isn't too much time between games for this to fester in our minds and hearts, as our Sox have another opportunity to get in the "Win" column tomorrow afternoon. Jon Garland is set to tow the rubber against John Lackey at 2:55 and can be viewed on FOX Chicago.
