Redlegs Leg-Out a Victory

June 19 at Cincinnati

If the Sox put these in their shoes, maybe they will start hitting

Short Take:  Although Chris Getz hits his first major league homer, the Sox offense can’t overcome the Small Red Machine.

After a heartbreaking loss on Thursday to the Cubs, the Sox came into Friday night’s game with a confident mindset with Jose Contreras on the mound, keeper of nineteen consecutive scoreless innings and a two-game winning streak since being recalled from Charlotte. Unfortunately, the Sox offense continued in hibernation mode and wasn’t capable of overcoming the Reds offensive output. A last gasp in the 9th behind Paul Konerko’s 300th career homer with the White Sox brought the Pale Hose to within one run, but that’s as close as they would get as they were defeated by Cincinnati by a score of 4-3.

The Sox got on the board in the 4th inning as Ramon Castro walked and then scored on Getz’ homer off Bronson Arroyo into the right field stands, his first ever major league round-tripper. The Reds would cut the Sox two-run lead in half in the bottom half of the inning as Layne Nix and Ramon Hernandez traded back-to-back doubles off Contreras.

Contreras had the game in command until the sixth inning. Jerry Hairston lead off the inning with a single, and then Brandon Phillips drove him in with a two-run blast into the leftfield bleachers, one of Contreras’ only mistakes of the game. The Reds would add on to their 3-2 lead with a big insurance run in the 7th off Sox reliever Octavio Dotel. Chris Dickerson and his blazing speed doubled with one out, moved to third on a Hairston single and then scored on a sac fly by Phillips.

The Sox gave everyone a finish with Paul Konerko’s lead-off homer in the top of the 9th, pulling the Pale Hose within one run. But Reds closer Francisco Cordero shut down the Sox anemic offense and saved the victory for Arroyo, who upped his record to 8-5 on the season. Contreras earned the hard-luck loss to move to 2-6 on the year. The Sox tee it up with the Reds on Saturday Night in the annual MLB Civil Rights Game. It’ll be Clayton Richard vs. Reds sensation Johnny Cueto. Go Sox!

 Decent main course, but the dessert could NOT finish off a great dining experience.
