No Offense, But Sox Hitting Sucks

June 16 at Minnesota

Hey Sox, it's hard to destroy the barrels without a hammer. All you needed was to bust two barrels, and Buehrle-Kong would have stood tall in victory.

       
 

Short Take:   After bringing his running shoes last night, Michael Cuddyer flexed some muscle, hitting a solo shot that would be all the offense Nick Blackburn and the Half-AAA Twins would need.

   

I'm at a loss for words. Not exactly what I want to say for a person debuting on the TBGR, but seriously, looking at the 1-0 score that the White Sox yet again find themselves on the short end of, not much else needs to be said. Well, Mama didn't raise no quitter, so here goes:

After getting embarrassed by the likes of Brian Dinkleman and Carl Pavano last night, the Sox came out today looking to try to get their first win against their supposed "rivals", the Minnesota Twins. It looked good in the second, as Paul Konerko reached on an...infield single. Hmm, that's something you don't see every day. A.J. Pierzynski followed suit with a base hit, and it looked like the Sox were in business. Things looked even better when Alex Rios hit a screamer up the middle that was destined for the center field grass, but Nick Blackburn made a self-defensive catch and proceeded to throw it away while attempting to double off Pierzynski at first advancing the runners. So, two runners in scoring position with one out, with Adam Dunn at the dish. So, as a White Sox fan knowing they have a prime opportunity to drive in a couple of runs, you knew he was going to come up with a way to not do so, and sure enough, Dunn flew out to shallow left, and Gordon Beckham would ground out to third to squash that threat. Well played, Sox. In the bottom half of the inning, Michael Cuddyer, he of the 3 SBs yesterday, would display his newfound 20-20 candidacy by driving a Buehrle pitch 442 feet, making it a 1-0 Twins lead. Yet another typical Twinkie capitalization on a Sox missed opportunity. Never gets old, does it?

The Sox would go on to threaten in a few more innings, but the Sox' old friend, the GIDP, would come along and make sure nothing became of it. Nick Blackburn, I mean, Cy Blackburn (forgive my momentary lapse of respect) was doing everything in his power to make sure that the Sox tip their caps and that Ozzie plants his lips squarely on Ron Gardenhire's gluteus maximi in the postgame presser. The top of the 9th came, and after Dunn lifted a one-out single to left (Paulie hitting an infield single and Dunn gets a opposite-field hit...who would have guessed?), Brent Lillibridge, who is surely wondering what aspect of Juan Pierre's game he needs to emulate/where to get some of the blackmail evidence Pierre has in order to get some playing time, came in to run. Right on cue, he would be left standing at first base as Gordon Beckham and pinch-hitter Omar Vizquel would strike out against Twins "closer" Matt Capps to guarantee yet another Twins series win against the Sox. Yeah, the Twins aren't in the Sox' head much, are they?

The Twins would beat the Sox by only scoring one run for the second time this season (first time was, yep, that Francisco Liriano no-hitter...ahh, memories) and the Sox have scored 3 runs in 4 games (all losses) against the Twins this season. Man, is that Twins pitching staff a juggernaut or what? Wait...what do you mean they have a 4.23 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP? THAT shut out the Sox for the second time this season? REALLY? THAT'S 4-0 against the Sox?! THAT'S allowed THREE runs against the Sox in FOUR games?! Well, some days...I guess you gotta tip your cap. Am I right, Ozzio?
