When it Rains, it Poredas

June 12 at Milwaukee

Short Take:  Aaron Poreda makes his major league debut to calm the storm of Milwaukee’s offense, but the Sox bats once again experience a drought.

With nagging injuries up and down the roster, the White Sox were already short-handed going into Friday night's interleague game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Playing under National League rules, the Sox would also be DH-less with Jim Thome sitting on the bench while Sox hurlers took their chances at the plate. Unfortunately, the Sox pitchers couldn’t do their job on the mound, as the Brewers defeated the White Sox by a score of 7-2. In what started out as an exciting game, with lots of leather being thrown on both sides, turned into a lopsided affair once Sox start Clayton Richard ran out of gas while the Sox bullpen faltered.

The Sox drew blood in the top of the 4th with back-to-back doubles by The Cuban Missile and AJ Pierzynski (batting in an unusual cleanup role in this game). Chris Getz gave the Pale Hose a 2-0 lead by driving in AJ with a single to right field. Unfortunately, this would by the only scoring the Sox would do all night. Jeff Suppan scattered nine hits over 6.2 innings, but the Sox just couldn’t capitalize as they went 2-for-9 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.

Clayton Richard looked good for the Sox through five innings. The wheels fell off in the 6th when Richard threw a ball away to let Prince Fielder reach base on a lead-off squibber in front of the mound. With Richard’s pitch count already high (102 pitches through five full shut-out innings), Ozzie pulled him in favor of Octavio Dotel. Corey Hart quickly scored Fielder with a double. After walking Jason Kendall to get to the pitcher, Suppan made the Sox pay by driving in Hart with a base hit, tying the game 2-2. The Brew Crew took a 3-2 lead when Casey McGehee drove in Kendall with a single, 3-2 Milwaukee.

The floodgates opened in the 7th when Corey Hart tripled off DJ Carrasco, scoring Ryan Braun and Mike Cameron. After Bill Hall singled in Hart, the Brewers lead 6-2. Ozzie called on Aaron Poreda to shut the door. Although he gave up a single to McGehee, allowing the Brewers to take a 7-2 lead, he looked pretty solid. Poreda looked confident on the mound, going 1.2 with three strikeouts and only allowing one hit.

So, the Sox try to come off this disappointing loss and take the next two games against the Brewers. The White Sox bats are going to need to come alive soon, but things look bleak over the next eight games in NL cities with no DH, no Quentin, and an ailing PK. Let’s hope Jose Contreras can continue his comeback magic on Saturday. Go Sox!
