Offense Continues Ineptitude

June 26 vs. Washington Nationals


Levels Finished:
1
1-for-7 with RISP means they only deserve to have completed one level.

Short Take:   Philip Humber did not throw a perfect game, so he was the tough luck loser.

It was one of those picture perfect afternoons at U.S. Cellular Field, and as we know, those have been few and far between this season. Well, it was perfect in terms of the weather. In terms of the play on the field -- not so much. Trotting out another classic Sunday lineup, Ozzie Guillen and his team tried to take the finale of the three-game set against the Nationals, continuing their streak of 17 victorious series against National League teams. While Philip Humber was masterful, he made just one mistake on the afternoon. Since he received little run support, he was the hard-luck loser, as he and the Sox fell 2-1.

Humber (7-4) had himself another solid outing, not allowing a hit to the Nationals until the sixth inning when Jerry Hairston, Jr. led off the inning with a single. Interestingly enough, it wasn't that base hit that did Humber in; it was what happened an inning later. Staying true to form this season, Humber began to show signs of tiring when he approached 100 pitches on the afternoon. A walk to Michael Morse set up the two-run home run potential for Danny Espinosa, who delivered after fouling one deep to right just two pitches prior to the one that found the seats in fair territory.

Since the White Sox were baffled by a fossil, Livan Hernandez (5-8), any signs of an offensive onslaught were never even possible. In the 6 2/3 innings the old dude pitched, he struck out nine. Of those nine Ks, 1/3 of them belonged to the "fabulous" Adam Dunn. Most Sox batters were simply baffled by the junk balling pitcher, who was throwing 61 mph curve balls. Um, yeah. As per usual, Paul Konerko was immune to looking foolish at the plate, as he had the only RBI of the afternoon. After Omar Vizquel singled and Carlos Quentin doubled, Konerko came through with a single, plating Vizquel. From the fifth inning onward, the Sox had one measly hit off Nationals pitching -- an infield single by TCQ. From then on, 10 of the next 11 Sox batters went quietly, giving Washington the game and series.

Monday is a much-needed off day for the White Sox, who just can't seem to get any closer to .500 than two games below. The Sox now head to the Mile High City, where Gavin Floyd (6-7, 4.31 ERA) will take on Colorado's Jason Hammel (4-7, 4.13 ERA) Tuesday at Coors Field in Denver. The first pitch will be thrown at 7:40P.M. CDT and you can watch the game on WCIU.
