Cleveland Scalps the Sox

Short Take:  Losing streak hits four as Carl Pavano pitches a shutout against the White Sox

The Sox went into Friday night with a little more confidence than usual as they knew they’d be facing veteran right-hander Carl Pavano instead of a recently recalled AA or AAA pitcher. However, much like the last three games against the Swingin’ Oakland A’s, the Sox bats were ice cold. Cy Pavano masterfully threw a complete game shut-out, as the Indians defeated the Pale Hose by a score of 6-0. The defeat, the fourth in a row for the Sox, drops their season record to four games under .500 (25-29), but amazingly they remain only 3.5 off the pace in the AL Central.

Johnny Danks had nothing as the Sox starter tonight, going just 5.2 innings while allowing five earned runs on six hits and a couple of walks. The big blow by the Tribe happened in the third. After Danks walked Ryan Garko and Ben Francisco, ex-Cub Mark DeRosa tomahawked a 3-2 pitch into the leftfield bleachers to give the Indians a 3-0 lead. That’s all they would need on the night.

In the top of the 6th, Travis Hafner and Ryan Garko hit back-to-back solo homers off Danks, and that was enough for Ozzie Guillen to call for the bullpen. DJ Carrasco and Scott Linebrink kept the game within five runs reach by pitching 2.1 innings of combined shut-out ball, but Bobby Jenks surrendered another run to Cleveland in the 9th in the dreaded non-save situation.

The White Sox continued to struggle on offense all night, with only three hits off Pavano. Scott Podsednik reached base on a ground rule double in the 1st inning, while AJ Pierzynski singled in the 2nd and doubled in the 4th. Other than a Jim Thome walk in the 6th and a Chris Getz walk in the 8th, those were the only Sox base runners. Pathetic.

Time to get this thing back on track and break the four game losing streak. The Sox send Gavin Floyd (3-5) to the mound at 3:05 tomorrow against Jeremy Sowers (1-2) and the Tribe. Get a win tomorrow and then Sunday to win this series, and then we’ll take care of Detroit. The Sox should be in first place by next Thursday. Keep it positive….Go Sox!
