April 15 at Detroit Tigers


KW's Daily Special:
Tums
This Sox performance had fans reaching for the antacid.

Short Take: Poor situational hitting, a costly error and crap relief pitching made for a long afternoon at the ballpark.

If you found yourself stuck at work and unable to watch Wednesday's game, fear not. You didn't miss anything. Our White Sox turned in a clunker of a performance in all areas and saw their three-game winning streak come to an end with an ugly 9-0 loss to Detroit.

The game remained scoreless through the top of the fifth inning. And believe it or not, the Sox had two golden opportunities to break out on top. They blew both of them. Josh Fields tripled with one out in the first inning, but Carlos Quentin and Jim Thome left him stranded. Both men stuck out, with Quentin flailing at a bad breaking ball in a situation where contact likely would have produced a run.

In the fifth, the Sox placed runners on second and third with just one out. But once again, they failed to break through against Detroit starter Armando Galarraga. Like Quentin in the first, Brian Anderson basically struck himself out by swinging at a crap slider down and out of the zone. Brent Lillibridge failed as well, popping out weakly to right to end the threat.

Sox starter Jose Contreras got through the first four innings unscored upon, but control problems proved costly in the fifth. Contreras walked both the No. 8 and No. 9 hitters in the Tigers lineup. Those walks crossed home plate when Detroit's Placido Polanco hit a two-out, two-run double to deep center field to put the Tigers ahead 2-0. Bad defense cost the Sox in the sixth when Fields booted what should have been an inning-ending double play. Detroit ended up scoring three runs in that inning to go ahead 5-0. The rout was on from there, as Mike MacDougal's terminally wild presence on the mound did little to help matters in the late innings.

The Sox will try to get back in the win column Thursday night, when John Danks takes the mound against the Tampa Bay Rays.

WSI's
Critic's Corner:
No stars. Only four hits from the offense. What a waste of time.
