Halladay Sharp, Sox Fall Again

May 17 at Toronto Blue Jays


KW's Daily Special:
Raw Hot Dog
Kenny's staff had a pulse for the first 20 minutes of the ballgame or so, but other than that, it was more of the same.

Short Take:   Gavin Floyd continued his shaky start and while the Sox started off strong against Roy Halladay, too much of the doc proved to be a bad thing.

After yesterday afternoon's late-inning and heartbreaking loss, the Sox looked to right the ship against baseball's winningest pitcher to-date. They knew the task would be tough, but things actually started out strong for the White Sox against Roy Halladay. Unfortunately, the pulse the offense showed didn't last too long and it was more of the same from the south siders. This time, they fell 8-2 to the Blue Jays.

Scott Podsednik started things off with a bang, driving the first pitch of the ballgame to left for a leadoff double. Chris Getz reached due to Halladay's fielding error and Pods went to third. Jermaine Dye followed with a single to right, scoring Podsednik and all of a sudden the Sox were up 1-0 and it looked like the hit parade would be on. Getz advanced to third on Dye's single and came home to score the second run of the inning when Paul Konerko singled to center. Unfortunately, Dye was caught trying to steal third and after Thome walked, Alexei Ramirez and Josh Fields were retired to end the threat.

With the Sox up 2-0, Gavin Floyd went to work in the bottom of the first and almost immediately the lead was cut in half. With two out, Alex Rios homered, and it was a 2-1 game.

The score remained 2-1 until the bottom of the fourth when the wheels started to come off for the struggling Floyd. Aaron Hill led off the inning with a base hit to left and Alex Rios reached on an infield single, moving Hill to second. After Vernon Wells grounded into a fielder's choice, Adam Lind teed off on Gavin Floyd and just like that, the Jays took the lead, 4-2; it was a lead they're never relinquish.

Things got worse an inning later. Rod Barajas singled to lead off the home half of the fifth and with one out, Sox killer Marco Scutaro doubled to deep left center, scoring Barajas and putting the Jays up 5-2. After Aaron Hill walked, Scutaro stole third and came home when Alex Rios grounded into a fielder's choice at short. It was 6-2, but it felt so much worse. Unfortunately for the Sox, it got worse in the eighth!

Not having worked in several days, Bobby Jenks was on the mound for the Sox and had some struggles. Aaron Hill led off with a solo shot to left to make it a 7-2 game. With two out, Adam Lind reached on an infield single to third. Scott Rolen walked, moving Lind to second, and Lyle Overbay followed with a single to right, scoring Lind to make it the eventual final, 8-2.

The Sox are now 1-6 on this roadtrip and look to avoid a sweep north of the border tomorrow afternoon at Rogers Centre. Pitching in Jose Contreras' spot in the rotation, Clayton Richard (0-0, 5.40) will take the mound, and the Jays will counter with Scott Richmond (4-2, 4.28). The final game of this weekend wrap-around series will begin at 12:07p CDT and the game will be broadcast on CSN./p>

Critic's Corner:
 Two runs scored to start the game, but the offense went back to sleep.
