Mark Teahen Is Bad

September 8 at Detroit


Immunity:
Tony Pena
Exiled:
Mark Teahen

Pena pitched two innings of scoreless relief. He and Vizquel were the only two who did their jobs tonight. Teahen is becoming a regular as the "exiled" player in my TBGRs.

Short Take: An error by the Sox "third baseman" opens the door for a four-run Detroit rally and leads to a 5-1 loss.

Mark Teahen does not belong at third base on a contending team. He has no range whatsoever and a noodle for a throwing arm. That point was driven home Wednesday night when Teahen made two throwing errors, the second of which cost the White Sox four runs in a lifeless 5-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers.

The Sox took a 1-0 lead into the bottom of the fourth inning before all hell broke loose. Detroit had a runner at first with one out when Casper Wells hit a routine grounder to third that should have been an inning-ending double play. Alas, Teahen thought he'd go ahead and chuck the damn ball into right field. His throw to second was so far off the mark that Omar Vizquel had no chance to even knock it down. Instead of the side being retired with no runs scored, the Tigers suddenly had runners at first and third with only one out.

Sox lefty John Danks (13-10), pitching on three-days rest, worked around a Teahen throwing error in the second inning. This time, he could not escape. Brandon Inge hit a two-run single to put Detroit up 2-1. The big blow came moments later with two outs when Alex Avila ripped a two-run double to left-center to make it 4-1. As Hawk Harrelson would say, "That's four gift runs."

With the Sox hitters being baffled by Detroit right-hander Jeremy Bonderman (8-9), the game was basically a lost cause at that point. Bonderman struck out eight and allowed just three hits over eight innings pitched.

The Sox finished the evening with just four hits. For the second consecutive game, the South Siders were limited to just one run. The 43-year-old Vizquel was the only Sox player who looked ready to play in this game. He collected two hits, including a solo home run to account for the Sox only tally. He also made a couple nice plays at second base.

The Sox drop to 7-2 on this 10-game road trip and are now 5 1/2 games out of first place after Minnesota beat Kansas City 4-3 Wednesday night.

Right-hander Gavin Floyd (10-11, 3.78 ERA) will get the start for the Sox in the finale of this four-game set Thursday afternoon. The Tigers will counter with right-hander Rick Porcello (8-11, 5.20 ERA). The game starts at noon and will air on Comcast SportsNet Chicago.

Sox need another winning streak. Simple as that.
