WSI News - Totally Biased Game Recaps

Traveling Blues

April 28 at Texas


Immunity:
A.J. Pierzynski
Exiled:
Juan Pierre

Pierzynski finally got a couple hits and an RBI. He and Quentin were bright spots. Pierre, however, is a rally killer - two GIDPs and a caught stealing.

Short Take: Jake Peavy gets roughed up early and a late comeback falls short as the Sox lose their sixth consecutive road game.

Life on the road hasn't been easy so far this season for the White Sox. The team has lost its last six games away from U.S. Cellular Field and is now 2-7 on the road following Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Texas Rangers.

The Sox were fighting an uphill battle from the very start as right-hander Jake Peavy gave up five runs in the first inning. Following Josh Hamilton's two-run homer, Peavy walked the bases full. Two hits later, three more runs had scored and the Sox were facing a 5-0 deficit before they even knew what hit them.

Game over? Not quite. Peavy (0-2) settled down and retired 13 out of the next 14 hitters and didn't give up another hit until the seventh inning. Unfortunately, the Sox offense misfired against Rich Harden (1-1), letting the struggling Texas right-hander off the hook repeatedly through the first five innings of the game. Harden walked five and hit two batters, giving the Sox numerous opportunities to get back in the game. Unfortunately, the South Siders continued a disturbing trend by grounding into four double plays, including two by Juan Pierre.

The Sox (8-13) finally got to Harden in the sixth, when Carlos Quentin hit a 3-run bomb to get the Sox back in the game at 5-3. Unfortunately, Peavy tired in the seventh inning, and Randy Williams provided little relief. David Murphy's RBI double provided the Rangers (10-11) an insurance run that would come in handy.

Trailing 6-3 after eight innings, the Sox mounted a rally against Texas reliever Neftali Perez. Quentin doubled and scored on a double by A.J. Pierzynski. 6-4 ballgame. Alexei Ramirez singled home Pierzynski to make it 6-5. Tying run on base. Unfortunately, Pierre grounded out to kill the rally and end the game. Inexplicably, Sox manager Ozzie Guillen allowed the struggling Pierre to hit with Andruw Jones available to pinch-hit. The game concluded with Jones standing in the on-deck circle. For those scoring at home, Pierre accounted for six outs Wednesday. He grounded into two double plays, was caught stealing and made the final out of the game. Thanks for that, Juan.

The Sox have now dropped the first two games of this series and will try to salvage the finale Thursday at 1 p.m. Gavin Floyd (0-2, 8.38 ERA) will pitch for the South Siders. He'll be opposed by right-hander Scott Feldman (1-2, 5.40 ERA). If you're not working, you can watch the game on Comcast SportsNet.

TBGR Diary:
There are still 141 games to go. I'm not sure if that's good news or bad news.
