Chronic Offensive Slumber Continues

September 20 vs. Kansas City Royals


KW's Daily Special:
Underdone BBQ Pork
Another Sunday, another loss for those of the Burger Joint, this time at the hands of the lowly Royals.

Short Take:   Freddy Garcia went eight strong and only surrendered two runs. He deserved a much better fate than he received, as his offense squandered two scoring opportunities.

Last night's lopsided victory in favor of the White Sox surely had some Sox fans thinking that maybe it was the beginning of that extended winning streak they've been waiting for all season long. The realistic fans knew, though, that the Sox's offensive woes would find them once again. It was true, as the Sox managed just six hits off the last-place Royals. In the end, it was a pitcher's duel, and the Sox fell short, 2-1.

Freddy Garcia started off a little wild, searching for his control right away in the first inning, but it took the Royals scoring a run for him to find it. Willie Bloomquist led off the game with a double, then swiped third. Mitch Maier followed with a pop to Alexei Ramirez at short, but Bloomquist scored on Freddy Garcia's wild pitch, giving the Royals the early 1-0 lead.

The Royals added another tally in the top of the third. With one out, Josh Anderson reached on a bunt single and quickly stole second. Willie Bloomquist flied out to left, but Mitch Maier picked him up with a base hit to center, bringing Anderson around with the second run for Kansas City.

The Sox finally broke through in the home half of the fourth. Scott Podsednik led off with a single to center and swiped second. Gordon Beckham followed with a ground out to Robinson Tejada, but A.J. Pierzynski came through with a single, scoring Scotty Pods. The Sox loaded the bases in the fourth when Paul Konerko followed with a walk, as did Jermaine Dye, but Carlos Quentin flew out to left, ending the threat.

The home half of the eighth inning saw another potential scoring opportunity for the Sox, when Gordon Beckham walked with one out and A.J. Pierzynski singled, but it was squandered when Konerko went down swinging. In the end, it's another White Sox loss, another dropped series to a lowly team, and another tally in the "L" column on a Sunday. What new?

At this point in the season, with just 12 games to go and the Tigers up 6 1/2 on the third place Sox, it's pretty much a foregone conclusion that they're just playing out the schedule at this point. The hated Minnesota Twins come in to Chicago for three starting tomorrow night for a series that's basically meaningless. Rookie phenom Daniel Hudson (0-0, 4.76) will make his first Major League start in tomorrow's contest, while the Twins will send Nick Blackburn (10-11, 4.34 ERA) to the mound. The first pitch will be thrown at 7:11p CDT and the game will be broadcast on CSN.

WSI's
Critic's Corner:
 One star for the one run they scored off the "mighty" Robinson Tejada.
