Danks for Nothing

August 6 at Baltimore

Exiled:
Sox Offense

Kotsay's on fire, while the rest of the Sox offense is in a (hopefully) short-term funk

Short Take:  The Sox lose a heartbreaker to the Orioles in extra innings, spoiling a nice performance by Johnny Danks. Don’t worry, Ozzie still makes more money, is better looking and gets more chicks than Buck Showalter.

Seven innings of one-run ball by John Danks wasn’t enough on Friday night at Camden. That’s because the Sox offense went into hibernation-mode against long time nemesis Brad “Cy” Bergesen, who limited the Pale Hose to only five hits of their own and one earned run through seven innings. Adam Jones was the difference maker, knocking in the winning run in the bottom of the 10th off a worn-out Tony Pena, giving the O’s the 2-1 victory over the Sox and their fourth win in a row for new skipper Buck “My hand is still stuck in the back pocket of my pants” Showalter.

Danks started off shaky in the bottom of the first before settling down. Brian Roberts, Nick Markakis and Ty Wigginton hit three consecutive singles, with Roberts scoring on Wigginton’s base hit to give the Birds a 1-0 lead. The Sox clawed their way back in the third when Gordon Beckham sent a Bergesen pitch into the leftfield seats for a solo homer, tying the game at 1-1.

The Sox missed a golden opportunity to take the lead (and ultimately win the game) in the 7th. Mark “Wheels” Kotsay legged-out a one-out triple but was gunned down at the plate when he tried to score on an infield dribbler by Alexei Ramirez. Kotsay broke late by a half-second. If he would have run on contact, he would have scored and given the Sox a 2-1 lead.

Chris Sale debuted in relief for the Sox and looked wild, walking his first batter and giving up a hard single to the next Oriole hitter. Sale’s pickoff move to first appears to need some work too. Tony Pena came on to bail Sale out, masterfully pitching out of a bases-loaded jam. Pena would work 2.2 innings to give Thornton, Putz and Santos a break, but the O’s caught up with him in the 10th. Markakis singled with one out, advanced to third on a base hit by Luke Scott and then scored on a game-winning single by Adam Jones past the diving glove of Alexei.

TBGR Diary:
 The Sox still hold a 1.5-game lead over the Twins in the AL Central. Let's get back on track against the O's and make Showalter mad.
