Sox Have Their Phil of New York

May 2 at New York Yankees


Immunity:
Mark Kotsay
Exiled:
Alexei Ramirez

His two errors, one resulting in a botched double play in the seventh, opened the flood gates for the Yankees.

Short Take:   Mark Buehrle was knocked around hard, resulting in one of his shortest outings of the year.

While it looked slightly promising for the White Sox on paper, this afternoon's rubber match of the series between Chicago and New York was promising alright... for the Yankees! Mark Buehrle was roughed up hard in just 4 2/3 innings, giving up five earned runs on ten hits, while the Yankees' Phil Hughes went seven, giving up only four hits. Buehrle's defense didn't help him any, either! This game turned into a rout, with the Sox down by a dozen headed into the ninth, but thanks to another home run, ended with the Sox scoring three way too late in the ballgame. Yankees 12, Sox 3.

The scoring started early for the Yankees, as they managed one run in the second, courtesy of the Robinson Cano and scrappy Brett Gardner duo. Cano, batting over .380 on the year, led off with a double and eventually came home on Gardner's two-out single, giving the Yankees a 1-0 lead. They added to their lead in the fourth, also courtesy of Brett Gardner, who's solo shot made it a 2-0 game. The home half of the fifth inning saw the Yankees tack on three more runs. With one out, Mark Teixeira and Nick Swisher hit back-to-back singles, and scored on Cano's home run. Just like that, it was 5-0 New York.

Things only got worse from there. One inning later, with two out, Teixeira singled again, and this time he came home on Nick Swisher's home run, giving the Yankees a commanding 7-0 lead. The flood gates really opened in the home half of the seventh. I'll spare you the details, but know that a botched routine double play by Alexei Ramirez ended up costing the Sox dearly. Things got so bad that almost all of the Sox fans who attended Rongey's remote broadcast at Real Time Sports in St. Charles slowly trickled out, leaving just two standing! People decided they had better things to do than watch a horrible baseball game! In the end, the Yankees added five more to their run total, giving them an extremely lopsided 12-0 lead.

For whatever reason, the Sox's bats showed some life in the ninth, courtesy, once again, of Paul Konerko. To lead off the ninth, Gordon Beckham reached on an error by Ramiro Pena, and went to third on Andruw Jones' single. Paul Konerko then hit his Major League-leading 12th homerun of the season, but it wasn't nearly enough, as the Sox went quietly after that. The final score was 12-3 in favor of the Yanks.

After a 2-4 road trip to Texas and New York, the Sox return home for a seven game homestand, starting tomorrow night with the Kansas City Royals. The Sox will send Jake Peavy (0-2, 7.85 ERA) to the mound, and he'll oppose Kansas City's Gil Meche (0-2, 10.13 ERA). The first pitch from U.S. Cellular Field will be at 7:10p CDT and the game will be broadcast on WCIU.

TBGR Diary:
 The offense can't continue to fail in clutch situations and strand runners in scoring position, otherwise it's going to be a long season!
