Refuse To Win

August 12 at Seattle Mariners


KW's Daily Special:
Nothing
We hope you enjoyed tonight's offensive famine!

Short Take: The White Sox offense squanders chance after chance, and Seattle's Ken Griffey Jr. singles in the lone run of the night in the bottom of the 14th inning.

I stayed up until after 1 a.m. for this? The White Sox offense put on a clinic in how to blow scoring chances Wednesday night/Thursday morning, stranding 14 runners and wasting a brilliant pitching effort in a maddening 1-0 loss in 14 innings to the Seattle Mariners.

Former Sox outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. hit a two-out RBI single in the bottom of the 14th off Tony Pena (1-1) for the lone run, but any Sox fan who watched this game knows this should have been a South Side victory in regulation time.

In the fifth inning, the Sox had runners at first and third with one out. Alex Rios flew out to right field, and Seattle's Ichiro Suzuki threw Jayson Nix out at the plate to end a threat. In the seventh, the Sox had runners at the corners with NOBODY out. Naturally, Scott Podsednik struck out and Gordon Beckham grounded into a double play to blow a golden scoring opportunity.

The Sox had first and third with one out in the 10th, but Podsednik got caught napping and was picked off third base in an example of idiotic baserunning. In addition, the Sox left a man at third in the 9th, a man at second in the 11th and failed to score after placing runners at first and second in the 14th.

All of this nonsense wasted a great start by Mark Buehrle, who fired eight shutout innings. The lefty got back on track after dropping his last three decisions. He allowed just six hits and worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth.

Relievers Matt Thornton, Bobby Jenks and Scott Linebrink combined for five scoreless innings of work before Pena got nicked for a run in the 14th.

The Sox drop two out of three in this series and miss a chance to gain ground on Detroit, which lost to Boston tonight. Up next for the Sox: a weekend set at Oakland. Let's hope they score a run sometime soon.

WSI's
Critic's Corner:
Four stars for each pitcher that didn't give up a run. Screw the hitters. They all sucked.
